Since 2009, Camp BDK has provided summer academic enrichment activities to as many as 94 local elementary school students. Students enrolled in the seven-week summer program at Baron DeKalb Elementary School (BDK) have participated in a variety of activities, including basket-weaving, photography and swimming lessons, as well as classes provided by local artists -- all at no cost to their parents. But next year, the camp will have to close its doors.
