Campers will be placed in a small group with other kids in their grade. We welcome campers to request friends that they would like to be in a group with. The day is broken up into 3 scheduled activity periods, one swimming period and 2 or 3 elective periods (plus lunch and snack). During their time at camp, campers will have the opportunity to try every activity that we offer! Elective choices are made while the campers are at camp, so they can pick whatever they are most interested in that day or that week!
The BRDC staff is made up of teachers, parents, college & high school students ages 16 and up. All staff are thoroughly screened, including an interview and reference and background checks. Many of our staff have been campers at BRDC or have children of their own who are campers!
No! BRDC provides lunch and an afternoon snack to all campers. Lunch includes a hot meal & sides, sandwiches & bagels as alternatives, an extensive salad bar, yogurt, fresh fruit, sports drinks and water. Gluten free and vegetarian options are always available. Dessert is served only on special occasions. In addition to an afternoon snack, fresh fruit and water are available all day long.
BRDC is a nut aware camp, we ask that parents not send any items to camp which contains nuts. Gluten free options are served every day. In addition, we can accommodate most other food allergies. If your camper has a food allergy please be sure to speak to us at least 2 weeks prior to your camper’s first day.
Yes! The BRDC nurse, along with other members of the administration and select counselors, are trained to administer emergency medications such as Epi-pens and Inhalers. Please see below for information regarding the forms that are required for administration of prescription medications. In addition, the nurse can administer over the counter medications such as Tylenol & Bacitracin as needed. The over-the- counter medications are provided by BRDC and do not require additional paperwork from your camper’s doctor. If your camper requires an over-the- counter medication which is not stocked by BRDC, additional forms are required by the State of CT.
The State of CT requires that every camper and staff member has a physical on file that is within 3 years of their last day of camp. In lieu of the BRDC medical form, we can also accept the standard State of CT form or any equivalent form from the pediatrician. If your camper requires any prescription medications, including epi-pens and inhalers, a Prescription Authorization Form is required every year. If your camper requires any non-prescription medications that are not stocked by BRDC, the Authorization form is also required. All of the medical forms are available online in your BRDC account.
