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

Middle Division: Ages 6 to 8

Our youngest wizards will love setting off for Hogwarts and being sorted into a House on the first day of camp, then collecting points for their House through their 2-week journey to becoming a fantastic Wizard! Everyone will try Quidditch, taste the flavors of Hogwarts that they’ve heard about in the books (like chocolate frogs, butter beer and more!) Craft projects will include creating a shoe box set, and painting the background for the skit. Campers have a daily swim lesson and will finish the camp session acting out a skit for families onstage - so much magic, so little time!

Journey to Hogwarts

Session 1 - June 17-28

No camp on Wednesday, June 19

The flowers and the bees can’t seem to get along about who runs the beautiful garden. Can the King of Flowers and the Queen of Bees and their people come to an agreement, or is the Beautiful Garden of Sunshine doomed? Young actors will create this pretend world becoming different flowers, bees and forest animals, doing some acting, singing and dancing along the way. Craft projects will include creating a shoe box set, and painting the background for the skit. Daily swim lessons + a skit for families on the final day make this camp so much fun for young actors! Taught by professional actress and drama instructor, Debora Crabbe.

The actors have lost their passion and joy for the show. The director is at wit’s end about what the actors will do onstage. What will it take to motivate both sides? Will the show be complete before opening?! Singing, dancing, acting and hilarity will be part of this fun-filled camp where young actors get to explore the elements of theatre as they help create the camp skit. Craft projects will include creating a shoe box set, and painting the background for the skit. Daily swim lessons and coaching by professional actress and drama instructor Debora Crabbe will make for wonderful camp days, and parents can come see their child perform onstage!

Ocean creatures and mermaids unite in this wonderful camp about friendship and overcoming obstacles.
