What Others are Saying . . .


"I am thrilled that my camper hasn't 'aged out' of BNC. Thank you very much for creating a happy, age-appropriate experience for her this summer. She was able to reconnect with old friends, be a part of a team and feel a sense of responsibility for the program and place she has grown up at and grown to love. Thank you for all your work making sure your older campers have a valuable and age-appropriate experience at BNC!"

"My child had a WONDERFUL time at camp. She talks about camp all the time, things she learned, friends, things you did. Thank you so much for putting together such a wonderful program under the strange circumstances."

"I can't say enough about how much my child and I love BNC. It's the most supportive, accepting, educational, and FUN camp experience ever! Highly, highly recommend."
