Summer 2020

Dear BBS Families –

It’s been a long spring and we hope you are all meeting these challenging times with hope and positivity. Although we’re sad that we won’t be able to see you on either of our campuses in June, it’s never been more important — and our team has never been more inspired — to keep the spirit of summer alive!

We’re very excited to announce that many of Big Blue Summer’s academic courses will be run remotely by our experienced and enthusiastic Pingry faculty and adjunct teachers.

Additionally, in lieu of an in-person BBS Day Camp, we’ve worked really hard to develop an innovative BBS Camp-in-a-Box experience, delivered right to your doorstep! Each weekly BBS Camp-in-a-Box carries a unique theme, comes packed with fun and educational activities, and is highly interactive, including daily online meet-ups with counselors and peers, group games, special guest events, and more!

We’re also extremely proud to partner with organizations who have proactively put together a variety of online content and at-home kits to keep kids engaged and smiling.

Despite the unfamiliarity and uncertainty that 2020 has presented, our mission for summer hasn’t changed one bit: Big Blue Summer is 100% dedicated to delivering the most fun, memorable, and convenient experience for all of our families.

We hope you join us on this unprecedented journey and we look forward to a safe and amazing summer 2020!

The BBS Team
