Ages 10-12; June 30 – July 5
The Voyager Session at BBC is geared to help campers have fun and learn more about God as revealed through Jesus Christ, themselves, nature and the people around them. This session provides more opportunity for both cooperation and independence by providing more options for activities among shelters and individuals.
