Please check back for updated information about Summer Camps 2015! If you have questions, you may contact our Reservationist at (718) 735-4400 ext. 118.

All groups must make a reservation at least 2 weeks prior to their visit. Groups will receive a confirmation email when their program has been scheduled.

Please note that we are expecting a busy summer and will likely not be able to accommodate walk-up groups without reservations. Please schedule your visit by completing the necessary reservation form or calling (718) 735-4400 ext. 118.

Entrance to BCM is only allowed at your reserved time. Due to space limitations we cannot allow groups to enter before their designated time.

In the event that your program must be rescheduled, we will do our best to accommodate your group's needs. However, cancellations and delays require 48 hours' notice. Groups that do not provide requisite notice will forfeit their deposits.

Chaperone Policy
BCM's policy requires one chaperone per every five campers, and offers complimentary admission to those adults. Groups will be charged $6.00 for every additional or missing chaperone. Accommodations can be made for classes with special needs.

Lunch Accommodations
All groups that would like a guaranteed space to eat during their visit must schedule a reservation time. The fee is $5.00 per 15 campers. Groups with reservations will be able to eat lunch in an indoor or covered outdoor space and receive complimentary utensils and napkins. Groups that have not reserved a space are welcome to eat out of doors in nearby Brower Park. If there is inclement weather, BCM cannot guarantee lunch space for groups without reservations.

When the weather is good, groups are welcome to sit in neighboring Brower Park which also has two playgrounds and a large shaded lawn.

At BCM, hot and cold food can be purchased in advance or at the Kids Café during a group's assigned lunch time.  During the reservation process let us know if you will be buying lunches so that we can insure availability.
