Brooklyn Cultural Adventures Program: Summer Camp

Registration for 2023 is open!

BCAP Summer Camp is an award-winning day camp for kids ages 7–10 (grades 2–5), produced in partnership with six cultural institutions located in the heart of Brooklyn. During our two-week summer program, Adventurers visit two institutions on our Cultural Campus each day, exploring our annual theme through fun, hands-on experiences that weave connections between art, world culture, literature, history, nature, technology, and science.

This summer’s theme is Around the World. Travel across the globe in the heart of Brooklyn. Discover what “around the world” means with hands-on activities exploring global connections at each of our partner institutions. Brooklyn’s history, nature, and culture tell us stories that put seven billion people right at the end of our stoops!
