Continuously family operated since 1946, Blue Bell Camp offers a traditional and wholesome day camp experience that builds skills while de-emphasizing competition through a complete program of exciting and in-depth instruction. In small groups of 8-10 children, each camper learns over 20 activities in a productive atmosphere that develops confidence, independence, and leadership. BBC counselors are all certified school teachers and coaches who are specialists in their field and are passionate about sharing their expertise with each camper. Our counselors' average age is 30 years old, and we have no teenager, high school, or college-aged counselors. Most of our counselors return to spend the summer with us year after year as part of our Blue Bell family.
"We can't thank you enough for everything you and your counselors have done for [our son]. He had the best summer of his life! What a joy to watch our child mature, gain confidence and be a kid! We appreciate every single ounce of the energy and thought you put into your outstanding camp; it's more than just camp. We love you!!!!"
– Mr. and Mrs. K., Chalfont, PA
"Thank you so much for making 3 of my summers so amazing. Blue Bell has taught me so many new things, for example: riflery, archery, how to throw the discus and javelin, and most importantly, how to be a great leader. Blue Bell changed the way I look at things and how I interact with people older and younger than me."
– Love Zoe, age 11
"Blue Bell Camp has been a vital part of my life. Not only have I been able to share my passion for Karate with children, but I gained a family. The Blue Bell/Harris family are the most loving and caring people I have met in my lifetime."
– Karate Alex, Counselor and part of the BBC Family since 1987
"Blue Bell is a real camp - like I went to when I was a kid."
