Teddy Bear College Big Bear Summer Camp is scheduled to begin on The first Monday after Bensalem School District school year ends. Our camp begins when your child's school lets out and we run until your child goes back to school. That is approximately 11 weeks.
Our summer program is well planned with additional staff to accommodate the different ages of the children. We divide the children into two groups according to their ages: 2-5 years old and 6-10 years old. This enables us to schedule age appropriate activities. We are counting on having a wonderful summer again this year with lots of fun and entertainment for the children.
Our Big Bear Summer Camp program broken down into individual themed weeks. Each comprising crafts, games, cooking projects that correspond to the titled week. It makes it fun filled and very organized.
We also offer extra curricular activities that may be added to your child's schedule. They all carry extra fees. Your child may sign up for one or all. It’s your choice. You may tailor it to your affordability. We always have activities going on for those who choose not to participate in the daily off campus activity.

Health and Safety:
Please discuss with me any allergies or other considerations which might impact your child from being outside the majority of the day. Providing your child with a filled squeeze bottle is very important so they can replenish their fluids. I will refill the bottle during the day, as necessary. An appropriate sun screen is equally important because they will be playing outdoors most of the day.
