Inaugural 'Boot Camp' draws junior highers to BBC

BBC's first-ever Boot Camp for junior-highers drew more than four dozen students and youth workers to campus, helping seventh- and eighth-grade students understand the basics of the Christian faith and build a strong foundation for continued growth and leadership development in their high school years.

Each day, student "trainees" gained from vibrant worship together, passionate teaching, focused devotional time, and exciting games.

"I really liked the messages," said Jolie, 13. "They were really meaningful. They helped me learn more about self and about God."

The 2011 Boot Camp will be held July 11-15 for students entering seventh and eighth grades.

Answering Questions
Each day of the week focused on a different theme, guiding students to answer four big questions facing them:
- How do I know God loves me?
- How do I know I'm saved?
- What do I do when I sin?
- Can I make a difference?

Through the week, students realized what true forgiveness is, recognized God has given them gifts different from their friends, and worked through how to make a difference in their home lives, relationships, and other situations.

"I made a lot of new friends," said Kelsey, 13. "I tried not to let anyone be on the outskirts."

Details, including registration information, for 2011 Boot Camp will be posted later at
