Camps, conferences, events will fill campus over summer

More than a dozen week-long and weekend camps, conferences, and special events are planned for the campus and community this summer, events set to attract nearly 4,000 people of all ages to BBC&S.

Adult summer conferences allow men, women, and BBC&Sfamilies to be encouraged during a time of growth and renewal. Each provides a special time to connect with old and new friends from across the country and around the world.

Youth camps provide special, Christ-centered opportunities to be strengthened in the faith while building leadership skills for the future. Week-long sports camps build athletic skills while enabling young athletes to grow spiritually.

Each program has a part in growing BBC&S' focus on providing excellence in biblical higher education for effectiveness in global Christian leadership.

Also this year, two events off campus will be connected with the new Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders baseball team.
