BCAP Summer Camp

This summer, come explore world cultures at the Brooklyn Children's Museum and become a plant scientist at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden! Dissect an owl pellet at Prospect Park Zoo and scavenger hunt your way through the breathtaking book stacks of the Brooklyn Public Library and see a real-life mummy at the Brooklyn Museum. Discover the wonderful wildlife of Prospect Park at the Audubon Center and go back in time at the Lefferts Historic House!
