Great Outdoor Camp!
LOVE Bayside. It takes things back to "the way it used to be." Swimming, crafts, canoeing, crabbing, games, sports. Its a true outdoor camp. My kids (5, 7, 9) as well as my nephews (13, 15) all ALL love bayside and would go all summer if they could. I highly recommend it!!

My 8 year old daughter had so much fun last summer. So many activites to choose from. The counselors are amazing. The counselors have a great attitudes and energy. You just have a great vibe when you drop off your child and pick them up. The owners are very approachable and helpful in making sure your child has a great experience.
My daughter is waiting to come back and this time we are bringing little sister too!

Best camp ever!! My kids have attended for years and always beg to go back. Best for kids that like to be outdoors and keep busy. It's a great camp and one that I would highly recommend. Camp lasts all day and bus service is offered. It's a great value for a local camp that runs throughout the entire summer.

We love Bayside!
My daughter has attended Bayside Summer Adventure camp for the last 5 summers. She loves it more each year. It is a true 'summer' camp with all the activities taking place in a State Park, outside in the fresh air, all day! The campers can swim, paddle board, fish, crab, kayak, as well as participate in games, camp fires, arts and crafts and some sports. There is something for everyone. The staff at Bayside are wonderful, professional but most of all, they get to know the campers and make it a lot of fun. It's structured but not over scheduled with flexibility for working parents. My daughter cannot wait to go back each year!

Outdoors, Creative, Fun and a GREAT VALUE
Bayside Summer Camp is the perfect camp for kids who don't just want to sit inside a "facility" all summer long and play with blocks or legos!

I worked at the camp during my college summers and immediately sent my oldest daughter there once she was old enough to attend, her siblings will follow once they are old enough. This summer will be her 6th year attending and she goes every week of the summer aside from when we go on our family vacation. She loves being outdoors, getting to go to the beach everyday, and doing "different" things that she might not get to do normally (crabbing, nature hikes, slimy science, outdoor cooking).

We live in Baltimore County and are probably the ONLY family that attends from that far away, but it is WELL WORTH IT and don't mind the drive to the closest camp bus stop. Mike and Georgia (camp owners) are as professional as they get and have been doing this for upwards of 20 years, so there is nothing they haven't seen.

I highly recommend Bayside for your children, whether they be 5 years old and learning to branch out or 12 and looking for something that isn't as "boring" as child care.

5 stars, 2 thumbs up, 10 out of 10!

Best camp counselors
My kids have been attending a Bayside camp for about 5 years and every year they can't wait to return the following summer. The group counselors are really wonderful with the children. They love being outside all day at Sanyd Point even if it's a hot summer week. The offering of before and after care is really nice also.

My daughter has attended Bayside Summer Adventure Camp for seven years. It has always been her first choice in the summer. She loves the activities and the staff. I love that she is outside and unplugged all summer! She has learned all the traditional camp games and crazy songs and had the opportunity to canoe, fish, crab, swim and just enjoy being outside. She can't wait to see her Bayside family again this summer!

Mom of three
My children (7 and 9) attended Bayside Summer Camp in the summer of 2014. It was their first camp experience. They had an absolutely fabulous time. They went canoeing, swimming, hiking, made crafts and even did some cooking. Each day I picked them up they were happy (and tired!). The camp was very well run and I felt confident my children were not only safe but attended to and well cared for. My kids still sing some of the songs they learned from the counselors. My son even spent the night on the last day of camp. It ended up storming but he said it was awesome and he wanted to stay another night. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone.

My son loves Bayside Adventure
He's gone to Bayside for at least a few weeks each summer since he was 6 - this year he'll be 10 and we'll be back! He really enjoys the environment (not too crowded), the nature minded activities, and the really kind, interesting, energetic and friendly staff! I love the fact that they customize activities each week, and I always feel that there is learning hidden in all the activities, but the kids just think it's fun. It's outside, all day and he LOVES that. He comes home tired and a little dirty - that tells me he had a great day!
