Dear BBC Campers,
It gives me such great joy to tell you about my experience at camp. I had always wanted to be a counselor at a camp somewhere, and I finally got the opportunity last summer (2010), at a small place on a hill in Plymouth, VT, called Bethany Birches Camp, or as I like to call it, “Home.” I can honestly say that this was the BEST SUMMER OF MY LIFE so far!
At camp, I learned a lot about God, myself, and other people through various experiences. I was able to grow closer to the Lord, while living in a close community of friends who challenged and encouraged me along the way. Here are some of the highlights of my experience last summer…
1) Singing at Firesides. This was so fun because we used hand motions while singing songs, and often times, I found myself grow closer to God during these times.
2) The Slip N’ Slide on Wet N’ Wild Wednesday. With dish detergent all over my shirt I was able to go super fast down the hill!
3) Sleeping in the tree houses. It was like a sleepover every time! Story telling, giggling, and eventually sleeping.
Those are just a few examples of what Bethany Birches Camp is like, and there are so many other things to be excited about when you come to camp, such as baked oatmeal for breakfast; the interest groups that you can participate in; games on the field, and cabin chats. BBC has something for everyone. It is a place where you can feel free to be yourself, learn about nature, try new activities, learn how to work as a team, and learn more about God. There is something there for everyone, so I urge you to consider coming this year! I hope to return to BBC next year, and to hear about your experiences!
