5/5 – A great place on a great lake, family owned for so many years!
5/5 – Best run camp out there with attention to every detail. No other owner out there takes the time and effort to know every single camper and family. Brant Lake Camp is such a tradition centered camp and there’s no place else like it.
4/5 – Here’s the thing about BLDC, everyone there is so nice. The classes are great and stuff, but people are ultra cliquey. The directors can be rude to the counsalors. And sometimes the counsalors complain about it. The boys have treated me like dirt. Plus, most of the girls’ families that go there have a lot of money. the like to brag about it. Be prepared for that. But other than that, I’ve been going there for 3 years. It’s a great camp, but be prepared for some issues
5/5 – Greatest Camp Ever. Amazing Staff and Facilites. The Lake is Great. The Gerstens are awsome. I went for 7 years and i miss it so much. Green and Gray is the best 4 days of the year and everything you do in this camp is awsome. Gray Pride
5/5 – Rated best camp in ny 20 years in a row!! With top staff and top owner Richie Gersten have held a great record
5/5 – An excellent camp with fully engaged counselors and campers a happy place late fosters good teamwork, caring for each other fun and good relationships with confidence building activities . Yay for BLC
4.8/5 – BLDC IS AMAZING! i was first realli homesick but the people there were soo nice and everyone was comforting! Its a small camp so everyone gets too know eachother, and there are no groups, everyone becomes tight =] and the dancing here is great! Definitley recommend it!
4.6/5 – best camp ever…very pricey but the quality of sports, surroundings, friends and people that consistently get brought back to blc cannnot be matched. Green and Gray is really like no other competition i have ever experienced. Sure, some of the kids are not too respectful but its a small price you have to pay for having one of the greatest summers of your life.
5/5 – I go here. best camp for real and lots of people say that but its true. i was 7 and looked at the camp and held on to a tree for dear life so i could stay. i love it and GO GREEN

BLC is divided into three mini-camps in recognition of the fact that boys’ requirements alter as they mature.
