Enriching and memorable camp experiences

Camp Heritage, located at and operated by CCBC Catonsville and licensed by the Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, is designed for children who will have completed kindergarten through fifth grade. Children who have completed sixth grade and seventh grade are eligible to be selected to participate in our counselor-in-training program. The children are grouped according to their grade completed, with daily group sizes of between 24 and 32 campers.

Camp Heritage Operational Statement as of March 4, 2021
This message will now be updated approximately every 10-15 days.

During the summer of 2021, CCBC will be continuing its aggressive mitigation efforts designed to slow the spread of COVD-19. Currently within the pandemic setting, our campuses are safe places for students, constituents, limited activities, and the workforce. Camp Heritage will be part of the CCBC plan to keep it that way. At CCBC, all summer classes and college sponsored and hosted activities will face restrictions on indoor gatherings, enrollment or event capacity, and programming duration and activities.

At this time, I am extremely pleased to announce that Camp Heritage will return at 40% capacity for a six-week enrollment option only, Tuesday, July 6 - Friday, August 13, 2021. The changes to the program will be dramatic and too broad to list in this message. I encourage all parents/guardians considering enrollment for their camper to read every part of the enrollment brochure, including our revised registration and refund sections. The brochure will include all the significant changes, as well as general information related to our COVID-19 policy adaptations.

On Monday, March 15, 2021, Camp Heritage will begin a dedicated three-week enrollment period for families registered last year on a first-come, first-serve basis. On that same date, the enrollment brochure will be delivered to you electronically at the e-mail address you provided on your 2020 enrollment registration form. Please check your e-mail spam filters.

CCBC will be closed for Spring Recess from Monday, March 29 through Monday, April 5, 2021. During this closure which is not part of the dedicated enrollment period, Camp Heritage will not accept or process registrations, nor be able to assist with enrollment questions. If space is available, we plan to open the program for enrollment to the general public on approximately, Monday, April 12, 2021. At that same point, we would also update the website content to match the enrollment brochure.

We are extremely grateful to our camp families and staff for their continued patience and support during these challenging and difficult times, as well as to CCBC leadership for their support in restarting this important community program.

The Camp Heritage Experience

The curriculum was created to immerse children in a wide variety of programs that provide an enriching and memorable camp experiences. The programs include swimming, art, performing and creating, nature and the environment, sports and games, discovery time, table games, and special events. Each program focuses on activities that encourage children to explore their potential, build relationships, and develop self confidence. Please review the camp programming and all registrant materials carefully as CCBC is unable to fundamentally change the nature of the program to meet individual camper needs or provide child watching services. The camp has two 4-week sessions but also offers flexible six and seven full-week options.
