Stay at BBC to enjoy the BEAUTY of Fall Foliage

It’s beginning to look a lot like…FOLIAGE SEASON! The fall foliage season in Vermont has been described as:

“The unbearably beautiful American time and place. Brilliant yellow birch-covered hills slope down to glowing green meadows. Every sugar maple along every country lane combusts in scarlet and gold. The intensity of the season so overpowers the senses that autumn cannot be remembered one year to the next, so its splendor always comes as a shock.” – Charles Kuralt

There is no better place to view the bursting colors than the BBC Cabin!

– Share the beauty with your family and take in the colors while playing on the playground, kayaking in the pond, or exploring the forest. Make memories while having an adventure at a nearby attraction be it hiking, shopping or eating!

– If you’re in need of a quiet, peaceful retreat after a busy summer and a chaotic back to school season come to camp to enjoy the colors from a quiet hill top.

– Or come to BBC simply to support the camp’s mission of helping youth develop their relationship with God. All the while you can enjoy God’s surrounding creation and renew your own relationship with God.

No matter what the reason we want to share BBC’s view with you!

Inside Out Lives On!

Summer 2012 is officially over. Actually, it’s long past official, it’s history! The temps are dipping lower and lower, the counselors and campers have been gone for months. The pond is empty of the summer toys. The swings are still. The water to the bath house is off. Now is the time of year when BBC looks ahead to next summer, summer 2013. It’s been a challenge to move on this year partly because the theme from last Summer continues to be real all around me. Inside Out is be evident each day. I continue to see these ideas around me and experience them in my life.

The most visible example of late was the foliage season. The brilliant colors of the leaves changing bring the mountains to life. Everywhere is bustling and busy with tourists and crafts. Life is vibrant. But the reality is, regardless of all the life and color that comes with the changing leaves, it’s a symbol of dying. The leaves change color because all the nutrition and oxygen is removed. The trunk of the tree holds onto all the life giving material so the tree as a whole can survive winter. This allows pigments in the leaves that have always been there shine through. The displays of red, orange and yellow are beautiful. The colors are beautiful symbols of the death to follow.  Beauty precedes death. The dying of the leaf allows the tree to survive the winter.  The current leaves die and fall so the tree can live on through the winter. From death comes life. It’s Inside Out.

I’m sure the Inside Out theme will continue to abound around me, even now that all the leaves have fallen. I’ll continue to enjoy recounting the experiences and events of the summer of 2012. As I remember the relevance of the Inside Out theme, I’ll seek to uncover a theme with the same amount of relevance for the upcoming winter camps and the Summer of 2013. Stay tuned!
