Brandeis National Committee (BNC), Phoenix Chapter, offers summer camp for adults throughout June, July and August. It’s a diverse array of 85+ individual events, activities and programs — social, educational, community service and more.

Most of the activities meet only once or once a month, but several, like canasta and bridge, repeat throughout the summer. Summer camp activities include in-person happenings ranging from dining around town and exploring neighborhood haunts to jewelry making, upping your culinary repertoire and creating mosaic tile art. Programs on Zoom run the gamut from discussions on current events to old-time rock and roll, foreign film and book group discussions and insights from TED talks. There’s even a loom knitting class. There truly is something for just about everyone.

Not only does engaging in activities provide BNC Phoenix members with interesting outlets for the summer, but it also fosters social connections during a time when some may otherwise be spending more time alone. Summer camp enrollment has begun, but you may participate any time and choose what interests you from the monthly calendar of activities. BNC Phoenix requires all participants to provide proof of vaccination prior to attending any in-person chapter study groups or events.

Brandeis National Committee is a nonprofit organization raising funds for scholarships and research programs at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass. The Phoenix Chapter has more than 1,100 members, both men and women, and provides members with year-round educational and social programs, special events and community service endeavors.

Summer camp is $30 to enroll and participants can attend unlimited programs. BNC Phoenix Chapter membership is required ($60 annually for a single membership and $100 for couples). Yearly membership includes study groups during the October through May season, special events, programs and the opportunity to meet new people and make or renew friendships.
