Give your child a memorable summer by enrolling them in BTPD Summer Camp! Daily activities and field trips will be planned by caring and experienced staff. Campers will develop skills and knowledge in leisure activities including, sports, arts & crafts, games and nature. They will develop social skills and assist in the development of a positive self-image. We aim to have kids interact, learn and grow from these engaging hands-on experiences.
