Mutiny at Bay Camp

BayCamp is a pretty great experience for kids who have completed kindergarten through 12th grade. And it’s one always our education specialists’ favorite times of the year.

Twas the summer of ’18 and all through the Bay,
Kids were running wild on a warm summer day.

We had stopped by Rose Island, to learn of it’s wonder,
Who could have known this would be such a blunder?

After a tour in the barracks of the past,
The campers rebelled, in an instant, a flash!

They went from mere children to a mutinous crew,
There was nothing we could do to resist their coup!

So hear me this day, after surviving their attack,
When the campers rebel, just break for a snack.

Just take a quick break, get out of the sun,
Because a day at Bay Camp is a day meant for fun!

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building. Enter the building through the main entrance.
