April 2017 Newsletter

We hope you enjoyed a meaningful Passover Seder! With this spring weather, it seems as if summer is a ways away, but  Summer Camp is almost here!  Our team is in full swing preparing for an exciting summer at BB Camp and our BB Day Camps.  We're in the midst of hiring amazing camp counselors, engaging new and current camper families, and developing innovative programs that encourage growth, independence, and skill building- all with our campers in mind.
We couldn't do what we do for our communities' children without your support. Our annual gala fundraiser, the BB Camp Bash, is just TWO weeks away, April 14th. Join us at the Crystal Ballroom for Songs of Summer as we will celebrate Camp in song and dance. In typical BB Camp spirit, it is going to be a fun night!
Can't wait to see you again!
