BH Midtown–West Winter Break Camp

Thank you for joining us at camp! Winter Break camp has now ended for 2023. Sign up to be notified when we open camp next!

Sponsored by Bright Horizons Back-Up Care

Families with Bright Horizons back-up care benefits can reserve any number of days available in your Bright Horizons account–no weekly sessions required!

Please note that this camp location is hosted in a Bright Horizons facility and has limited capacity. Booking is only available by the day.

Here, we put kids in charge.

Preposterous? Possibly. Effective? You betcha.

When you trust kids, they trust themselves. For 43 years, we’ve put kids in charge of their own learning experience. As they try, fail, and learn on their own, they learn to trust their own judgment, and tackle the challenges of an ever changing world with creativity and confidence.

Campers choose activities minute to minute–deciding what they want to do, and for how long. Our job is to get out of their way, cheerlead creative risks, and provide just enough guidance to make sure nobody does anything totally* senseless.

*Totally senseless: By our definition, mistakes aren’t senseless. They’re how you learn.

Testimonials From Our Camps

(My daughter's) first day was a success. She raved about camp!! She has attended several camps in the past but in her words "this is the best camp ever." As for myself, I feel so much better knowing that she is happy!

(My son) had a great time, he liked the freedom of choice and the variety of activities! He'll be back tomorrow and can't wait for the go-karting! Thanks so much - it's incredible how much flexibility you offer, which is so appreciated!!
