Full summer of conferences, events ahead
More than a dozen week-long and weekend camps and conferences are set for this summer at BBC&S, a busy season that brings nearly 4,000 people of all ages to campus.
Adult summer conferences provide men, women and families with a time to be encouraged by growth and renewal. Each conference allows people to connect with old and new friends from across the country and around the world.
Youth camps provide significant Gospel-centered opportunities to grow in the faith while developing leadership skills. Building athletic skills and spiritual growth is the emphasis of the five week-long sports camps available for children and teens.
It is also a special time as the new $5.6 million Kempton Athletic Center becomes a part of campus.
