Time to Send the Kid in Your Life to CAMP!

Bridge for Youth is pleased to announce our 14th year of day summer camp for the youth in the greater Seattle area.  B4Y will be running both an IN PERSON and ONLINE Bridge Summer Camps for students grades 5-12.  The ONLINE CAMP is structured for Intermediate/Advanced skill levels. The Online Camp will be held July 29 to August 2, 2024. The hours are 10:00 AM -1200 PM PDT and 1;00 PM to 3:00 PM PDT.

The IN-PERSON CAMP welcomes all Bridge skill levels including students that have never played bridge before. The In-person camp will be held August 5-9, 2024, at the Mercer Island Congregational Church, 4545 Island Crest Way, Mercer Island, WA 98040. Hours are 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM PDT (Bring Lunch and Snacks).

B4Y is proud of its many camp alumni, including Arthur and Nathan Gong, Eddy and Eric He, Daniel Balof, Jabon-winner Jessie Cai, and many of the young players you see at our mentor/mentee events.

Camp is a great way to introduce a kid to the game.  If you have any questions, or would like to help volunteer at camp, please contact Ann Romeo at [email protected].  You can also check out our webpage at https://www.b4youth.org/bridge-camp.
