The Brooklyn Cultural Adventures Program (BCAP) is an educational summer camp organized by the Heart of Brooklyn, a unique partnership between six of Brooklyn’s most treasured cultural institutions: Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, Prospect Park, and Prospect Park Zoo. BCAP takes advantage of these rich resources by offering hands-on experiences for youth, including projects, games, and educator-led tours that weave connections between art, culture, literature, history, nature, and science.
BCAP employs teens as junior counselors, interns, and counselors-in-training (CITs) to assist with leading groups of children ages seven to twelve during six weeks each summer.
Junior counselors must be at least eighteen years old. They must have childcare experience, be able to set boundaries and lead by good example, and have patience and willingness to see things from a child’s perspective.
Counselors-in-training and interns must be at least sixteen years old, be highly motivated self-starters, have a desire to learn about childcare and the summer camp industry, and be interested in returning as counselors in the future.
