Box Turtles (Rising 1st Grade)

The Box Turtles program is designed for rising 1st grade campers where the focus is to encourage children to be investigators, explorers and collaborative campers, where your camper will be able to explore and discover through a wealth of experiences.

  • Swimming at Camp

    Beauvoir campers of all ages have the opportunity to enhance their swimming skills through group instruction. Grouped by skill, campers learn a variety of swim techniques, practice water-safety skills, and play fun water games. 

    Swimsuit and Sunscreen Recommendations
    We are asking that parents send campers ready in their swim suits (on their scheduled swim days) with sunscreen applied. As we think about how to support camp counselors, please send your camper in a bathing suit, this will allow for optimal swim time. A bathing suit with a separate top and bottom are preferred for ease of bathroom use. We recommend sending in a spray sunscreen which will reduce the need for counselors to assist with hands-on application of sunscreen.
  • Before and After Camp Care

    The Before and After Camp Program is not planned for summer 2021 at this time. Please check back for updates about this program.
