Bosque Summer 2024 Catalog

By Zach Lang, Bosque Summer Director

The school year may be coming to a close, but Bosque Summer is just kicking into gear. If you are unfamiliar, Bosque Summer is a camp for rising kindergarten through high school students featuring week-long, age-appropriate activities designed to foster creativity and encourage inquiry. This summer, we celebrate our 10th summer since we launched this format of our camp. In that last decade, the program has been voted the Albuquerque Journal Reader’s Choice best summer camp six times in a row and the best summer camp in the city by Albuquerque the Magazine last year during the inaugural year for the summer camp category.

The current summer camp model offers two options: adventure and flex camps. Those of us familiar with Bosque’s school year schedule will immediately recognize the Adventure Camp schedule as it is nearly identical to our school day from August through April. Each week, campers in rising 1st through 8th grade will rotate through four daily camps that focus on creativity, discovery, performance, and movement. With the options shifting each week, it is impossible to do everything in just one summer. This summer, we have even launched a full-day Kindergarten Adventure Camp that runs alongside the other camps while making sure our youngest campers have the skills and confidence they will need for kindergarten in the fall. 


For kids who would like to focus on specific activities, our flex camps have great options for everyone rising in 2nd grade and above. These camps feature half-day options including music, cooking, crafting, filmmaking, theater, sports and so much more. Those who participate in the half-day camps have the option to take a morning session, or afternoon session, or make a full day out of it by taking both. But our flex camps also hold full-day basketball and multiple musical theater camps that will feature performances at the end of camp. 


What makes the camp run from the inside is also noteworthy. A team of 30+ Bosque School upper school students is hired and trained to act as teaching assistants who help keep the campers safe and make camp fun. They work alongside three alums who work as program coordinators who help with everything from recess to drop-off and so much more. These two groups work with about 40 teachers to create and deliver an amazing summer camp experience. 


While camps are filling up fast this summer, we still have space. You can learn more by looking at our webpage here, or if you have questions, you can reach out at bosquesummer@bosqueschool.org. We hope to see you this summer!
