Camps at Burgundy Farm

Join us at Burgundy Farm Country Day School for another summer of creative fun! Camps at BFCDS include full access to the 26 acre campus, daily swim lessons, and hours of engaging activities with top-notch counselors.

 

Middle Division: Ages 6 to 8

Our youngest wizards will explore the magical world of Harry Potter, focusing on the first two books in the series. After being sorted into Houses, they’ll work on spells, try some of the famous foods and drinks, and act out their favorite characters from the beloved stories! Some scenery painting may also be part of this camp, unless the wizards can wave their wands and accomplish that! Campers will have daily swim lessons as part of this camp.

Heading to Hogwarts!

Session 1: June 21 - July 1

*no camp on Monday, June 20th*

Ages 6 - 8

This camp is perfect for children who love unicorns, fairies, and magical creatures. They’ll help create a short skit that will need all of the wonderful energy the unicorns and fairies have to solve the mystery of the missing unicorn. Campers will also build a shoe box set and help paint the scenery for the background of their magical story that they share with parents on stage.

Campers will have daily swim lessons as part of this camp.

Session 2: July 5 - July 15

Ages 6 - 8

Young actors will explore the classic story of Alice in Wonderland and all of the wonderful characters that live down the rabbit hole in this silly camp! They’ll learn acting basics like creative movement and vocal projection as they become Caterpillars, White Rabbits and Mad Hatters, along with other characters.  A short scene will be memorized and performed on stage the last day of camp. Creating a shoe box set and helping to paint the scenery for their background is part of the camp. Don’t tell the children, but they’ll also have a Mad Hatter’s tea party! Campers will have daily swim lessons as part of this camp.

Session 3: July 18 - July 29

Ages 6 - 8

We love the classic film The Wizard of Oz so much, we turned it into a 15 minute long camp skit! Some easy singing/dancing/acting bring it all to life onstage… without the scary monkeys! Campers will learn short snippets of several of the famous songs + dance along with them as they act out the story. Building a shoe box set and helping to paint the background scenery is also part of the camp session. Experience is not required because this is an introductory musical theater camp with zero pressure. Campers will have daily swim lessons too.

Upper Division: Ages 9 to 12

 

For children who have read the books - at least once! - and probably seen the films, this camp is an in-depth exploration of all things Harry Potter and the wonderful world of Hogwarts. Campers will be sorted, then have fun quizzes and practice potions to earn House points, make Butter Beer and eat their share of chocolate frogs! They’ll also learn a bit of stage combat as they act out famous scenes from the stories too. Read the books if you haven’t yet! 

Campers will have daily swim lessons too.

Broadway Stars!

Session 3: July 18 - July 29

Ages 9 - 12

There’s a mystery afoot at Burgundy Farm that campers will create/devise and then perform on the last day. The Barnyard animals may have seen it all - but can they tell the intrepid detectives whodunnit? Character exploration, vocal projection, creative movement and self expression skills will strengthen during this fun-filled camp where there is no wrong answer - or is there?

All will be revealed on stage! Campers will have daily swim lessons too.
