Pen Pal Program

What is the Pen Pal Program?

Our BYC Pen Pal Program is a way for campers to keep in touch with their counselors over the summer! It is completely free to participate, and campers are able to correspond all summer with their counselor(s) of choice! 

What should I know before beginning the Pen Pal Program?

  • As mentioned, this program is without cost, campers just need to be able to send their own letter to begin correspondence!
  • Campers MUST fill out the contact form on the next page with a parent/guardian before sending their first letter. This is so we know who to expect letters from, and to keep everyone safe and happy this summer! 
  • Campers are welcome to write to as many counselors as they want. However, only the counselors presented on this page are available for the Pen Pal Program
  • There are safety guidelines that everyone must abide by during the Pen Pal Program in order to ensure everyone remains safe and secure this summer! These guidelines are stated on the next page and should be read with your camper before filling out the contact form.
  • The counselors will be available to write back only for the summer season, and sign-up will only be available until July 31st, 2020.
