Both our kids attended BCWS for YEARS and loved it! So much creativity goes into planning fun and educational activities and kids truly love the feeling that they are figuring out the wonders of the WV woods on their own. Our kids learned how to have fun away from the cushy suburbs: no cell phones, computers, a/c etc and they came home each summer more confident and independent. Would recommend this to any family!

Our entire summer is built around our child's camp session. That's meant giving up other really great opportunities, but that's our child's choice, summer after summer. The atmosphere is fun, personalized, encouraging of inquiry, fostering safety-minded outdoor exploration, appreciation of close study of the natural world, gently structured for growing independence, and even the food is good, (nice samples at drop off) some of it grown on site. Older kids design their own study project; it's a great place to be smart, have fun and enjoy the outdoors in a friendly community. Another parent told me, mystified, that her kid refused a European vacation in order to return to camp. Best for kids who are happy with outdoor time, or want to develop this in themselves. Highly recommend.
