April 10th Update: The Boys Camp is no longer accepting Wait List names. As of April 9th, we have been able to allow 40 boys in off of the wait list. Most likely this will cap our total number, as we want to ensure we have the space and counselors to provide the same experience we always have for our families and campers. If you have not received an email with an application and you are looking to fill that week elsewhere, we would suggest you go ahead and book another camp or activity for your son. We certainly apologize that we can’t take everyone and and very grateful for all of the support and desire to attend Bomber Sports Camp.
CAMP DATES FOR 2019 ARE MONDAY, JUNE 3 – FRIDAY, JUNE 7.
REGISTRATION FOR SUMMER OF 2019 CAMP WILL OPEN ON TUESDAY, JAN 22ND.
LAST YEAR REGISTRATION FOR FOR THE BOYS CAMP WAS CLOSED WITHIN 48 HOURS AND THE GIRLS SIDE A BIT LATER. WE EXPECT BOTH TO BE IN HIGH DEMAND AGAIN THIS SUMMER, SO PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR.
