We offer a variety of different types of camp sessions at BR.

We have a Starter Camp for first-time campers or younger girls, one and two week sessions which can be combined for up to a 4-week stay, Mother Daughter Retreats, and Alumni Weekends so that there is something for everyone. All of our sessions are all inclusive. There is never an extra charge for camp activities, horseback riding or trail rides.  Camper sessions have early registration discounts – so remember to register early for the best pricing. Get ready for a summer of fun!
