Summer Camp


Black Mountain Summer Camp (BMSC) is a day camp for rising 1st graders through rising 6th graders. We explore our local pools, parks, walking trails, creeks, waterfalls and lakes.
 We also enjoy creative expressions like arts and crafts, going to museums and plays.  BMSC encourages campers to enjoy adventure, to be creative, to share their wonderment, and to nurture others and themselves in a safe environment. 

Camp hours are from 8:30am - 5:00pm, Monday - Friday.  We are located on the lower level of the Lakeview Center at Lake Tomahawk. We are part of the Recreation and Parks Department in the Town of  Black Mountain. 

 See our Facebook page for pictures of our past adventures.
