- We have attached a complete list of summer camps available to our district students through the high school coaching staffs. Next year’s 6th and 7th graders can attend camps on either side of town, along with age-eligible elementary school students, but incoming 8th graders and freshmen for the 2019-20 school year can only attend camp at the high school they will be attending as freshmen. This is an important MSHSAA rule that all parents must be aware of as they make summer plans. BSSHS Camp list BSHS Camp List
