Boot Camp provides foundation for life

Helping young people answer some of life's big questions while gaining skills for leadership is the focus of a powerful week-long summer event at BBC.

"Boot Camp: Basic Training for Junior Highers" is a special time for seventh and eighth graders to build a foundation for leadership and continued growth and maturity.

Boot Camp is set for July 15-19 for students and their youth workers.

Focusing on growth
Spiritual growth takes place as students gain from general sessions, personal devotional times, small group meetings, and meeting new friends.

Each day of the week focuses on a different issue, 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?

Led by youth ministry veteran Dwight Peterson of BBC, students are given the tools they need to become leaders in their churches and schools, building a foundation for a lifetime of service.

"Boot Camp is a wonderful progression in what BBC is offering to young people," said Mike Brink a youth worker from Binghamton, NY. "I feel like it gives our kids a jump start in developing their spiritual life, and in developing important skills. They also have a great time building new friendships."
