The Bubble @ Home

Schedule & Program Information: June 29 - July 4 

Helpful Tips:
- Registration is required for Bunk Time and can be found here. Zoom links for each Monday's Bunk Time will be sent out the Friday before. Bunk Time links for week one will be sent on Friday, June 26th.
- Many of our programs are split by age group: Lower Camp is for rising 2nd-7th grade campers. Upper Camp is for rising 8th-10th grade campers.
- Registration for Chugim, Family Fridays, and other one-time programs is a-la-carte, does not require pre-registration, and is separate from Bunk Time registration. Most of these Zoom links only require a quick sign-up once clicked. This should only take a few seconds each time!
- Workshops require a three-day commitment (Tuesday to Thursday each week). These programs do not require pre-registration, just a quick Zoom sign-up for the Tuesday session and you're set for all three days.
- Program information will be available online for Week 2 starting on Friday, July 3rd and for Week 3 starting on Friday, July 10th.
