Our Camp Store

Are you looking for something unique to remember BDC? Or perhaps you are wondering how to pack less for your trip to Cape Cod? You may want to visit the BDC Camp Store when you arrive!

This year we are offering a fantastic selection of hats, short and long sleeve t-shirts, hoodies, swim shirts, lunch bags, backpacks, sunscreen, water bottles and much much more!  


Companies Affiliated with BDC:



Because BDC does not refund tuition or fees after May 1st of each year, we are pleased to offer families cancellation insurance protection by partnering with Travmark should your plans change after the May 1st deadline. Policies are purchased and serviced directly through Travmark, though a portion of the premium cost will come back to BDC to benefit camp scholarships. Add affordable piece of mind while juggling busy summer schedules, all while supporting BDC's mission to make camp a possibility for as many children as possible!





At the end of summer, there is always a pile of campers belongings left at camp. This is an expensive waste for our campers (and their parents!) As a way to target the problem of lost belongings and a large lost and found closet, we are encouraging our campers to label all belongings.

BDC has partnered with Mabel's Labels , a company with all types of labels that are colorful, indestructible and fun! With a special 'camp pack' available and also a larger combo pack, your camper can label absolutely everything!

Go to Mabel's Label's and place your order through our camp's special page.

We look forward to sending campers home with ALL their belongings this summer!



BDC campers all love to have fun in the sun but more than ever it is important to protect campers from the harmful effects of UV Rays.

BDC has partnered with grUVywear, a company that specializes in fashionable, fun, UV protective swim wear that offers a UPF of 50, blocking over 97.5% of the sun's harmful rays from your camper's skin. The vibrant and attractive UV protective wear is designed with the BDC logo and mimic summer surf wear so they can be worn in and out of the water all day for added protection.

Go to our dedicated grUVywear page to purchase your desired style and size.

We look forward to helping you keep your campers stylish and protected this summer!
