Kids are out of school for big chunks of the year, and during those periods, families seek affordable, innovative, nurturing ways for their children to spend this free time. The Bearcamp Center’s camps fill that need!

Carroll County regularly rates as one of the least affordable counties for childcare. Families struggle to find options which meet their household budgets and operate during parent work hours. Carroll County households with young children can expect to pay up to 12.5% of the median income for this essential service.

We collaborate with various private and State agencies to secure funding which offsets our expenses so that we can offer our out-of-school camps on a sliding scale, making these experiences accessible to all children.

We hire a diverse staff, many with years of teaching experience, who bring creativity, energy, consistency, and joyful goodwill to their interactions with our campers.
