July 31 - August 5 — Icky-Ology

Icky-ology is the study of gross, disgusting things. Well, not really, but we’ll be exploring plenty of things that make us say, “ick” during this fun week of camp. Are snakes really slimy? Do bats really get stuck in people’s hair? What exactly is Bee barf? Find out the answers to these questions and so much more! 

August 7 - 11 — Survival Village

Each day you will slip into the wilderness of BOTR to live in a life-sized village built by your own hands. You will use your imagination and the skills you learn to work as a community. The days will be spent building forts, forging rivers, and seeking adventure as you solve challenges and learn to survive by relying on each other.
