There are separate programs for teens and for younger children. However, all programs are designed to keep young people off the streets, to educate them during the non-school months, and to provide recreational experiences to which they might not otherwise have access. In 2009, the summer program at BGCB served 3,475 youth, including providing employment for 253 teens. BGCB's five summer camps offer a range of educational, social, and cultural activities to make a camper's experience exciting.

Camp Greylock is divided into 3 smaller residential groups, which are further separated into divisions. Greylock is a community made up of individuals, and our structure of intimate groups enables us to be sensitive to each individual. We have approximately one counselor for every three campers. We are committed to knowing, understanding, and giving personal attention to each camper. We know their names, their personalities, their needs and their goals. We will go the extra mile to help them succeed. We want campers to recognize that learning is a lifelong process. We help young men look inside for their talents, and outside to find the integrity in all things. Through example and guidance, campers learn the value of sportsmanship, effort and consideration for others.
