  • Middle Division: Ages 6-8

    The brand new Middle Division is designed for campers ages 6-8 who, while they have enjoyed their Lower Division camp experience, may be ready to explore what Upper Division camps are like. This new, transitional camp division allows more choice to our oldest Lower Division campers who would like a bit more say in what they do during the camp day. Now, with the introduction of the Middle Division, we have opened up all of the half-day camp programs that make the Upper Division so exciting. Campers who choose the Middle Division can "build their own camp" by selecting from a wide variety of half-day programs (campers choose a morning AND afternoon program to create their full day) to create their own camp experience. All afternoon half-day camps in the Middle Division include daily swim instruction in Burgundy's own outdoor, saltwater pool.

  • Counselor in Training Program: Ages 13-16

    The Counselor in Training (CIT) program is a full day, program for young adults who are no longer campers but not quite ready to be a camp counselor. CIT’s are assigned to one of our camp programs, or the camp office, and are mentored by the CIT Director as well as the camp counselors they work with. CIT’s assist the counselors with the day to day operation of the camps, help monitor the campers, learn what it means and what it takes to be a successful camp counselor, and engage in team-building activities with each other. The CIT experience is a combination of hard work and a lot of fun, and is a very nice transition for campers who have aged out of certain camp programs but are not ready to let go of a fun and meaningful summer camp experience. Many CIT's go on to become counselors with the Burgundy Farm Summer Day Camp, and learn many important skills that will serve them well in all facets of their lives. CIT’s receive a $50 stipend at the end of each session in recognition of their hard work.

    AGES: 13-16
