My friend told me that the BCS Summer Camp d'été was a mix between school and camp, the staff members are really nice and the trips are awesome. Well, now that I've experienced it for myself, I can say that every word he told me was true and there's even much more!

Boarding Life

Our boarding residences are known as houses. We have eight different houses located on our campus and students are placed two per room. Our Summer Camp team takes great care in selecting the roommate you’ll be paired with during the four weeks. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet new friends, as our two Summer Camp streams are divided into the different houses. Each house is equipped with a fully-stocked kitchen and common rooms—perfect for movie nights and hanging out with your friends!
 

WHAT TO PACK

Running or athletic shoes are compulsory for sports and BCS Summer Games. Casual summer clothes are worn during camp and all articles of clothing must be clearly marked with your name.

Bed linens are supplied, however you must bring your own towels and personal items such as shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.
 

VISITING

Your parents are welcome to visit you on campus Saturday and Sunday afternoons. You can obtain leave for such occasions, provided you have no summer camp commitments.

I learned more in one month at the BCS Summer Camp d'été than I did in a year at my regular school.Elizabeth (Canada)
