Be Great Camp is a half day enrichment program separate from regular Club hours open to BGCCA members.  Be Great Camp will provide campers an additional opportunity to challenge themselves in learning new skills, exploring their passion, and building their character. 


Space will be limited to 45 Club members in grades Kindergarten – 6th for the 2018-2019 school year.  Be Great Camp will run 7:45 AM to 12:45 PM Monday thru Friday starting May 29th through August 17th.  The Club will be closed May 28th for Memorial Day and July 4th for Independence Day.  Campers will need to bring their own sack lunches.


The Camp fee for early bird registration forms turned in on or before April 30th will be $70 per week per child pre-paid in advance in four payments* for a total of $840.  After May 1st, the amp fee for 2018 will be $80 per week for a total of $960.  (Be Great Campers who withdraw efore the start of Camp can receive a full refund if and only if all camp spots are filled.)  (*Other payment plans can be requested and must be approved.)


It is important to note that you are committed to the entire summer and Be Great Camp fees are non-refundable.  You will not receive compensation due to a child’s nonattendance, misbehavior, or other scenarios interfering with their ability to attend Camp. Campers must be on their best behavior and engaged in activities during camp hours.  It is a privilege to be a part of Be Great Camp and we hope that your child(ren) will join us in being GREAT in the Summer of 2018.


Only registered Campers may attend the Be Great Camp between 7:45am and 12:45pm. 

Annual BGCCA membership is inclusive of our summer Club hours of 12:45 PM to 5:15 PM Monday thru Friday open to Campers and all active BGCCA members.
