Summer Camp Registration Opens January 7!
This past summer 454 children, youth and adults attended CBD summer camps. That was a slightly larger group than we had the past few years! Campers grew in faith and understanding, as well as made new friends, were challenged by new experiences and had fun! The 2019 Summer Schedule is out, and 107 children and youth pre-registered in June and July. Registration is now closed, but online registration will begin January 7. At that time summer camp brochures will be mailed to past campers too. Churches will receive registration brochures after the Camp Rep. Meeting on January 20. Register in January and February and get the lower ‘Early Bird Discount’ rate.

Make plans now for the best week of your summer. There are twenty camps to choose from, including the new Cooking Camp! At Camp Blue Diamond you'll be sure to grow in faith, have fun, make new friends, and have an adventure! Check out the Summer Camp Page, then go to your favorite camp to discover dates, fees and photos.

 

 

 

 

Youth Retreat: January 11 - 13
'One, Though Many: Being the Body of Christ Despite Differences'

“Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:12 (NIV)

Kick off the year right by coming to the Youth Retreat! Join Camp Blue Diamond and the Middle PA District as we welcome Tyler Goss. Tyler has been a part of National Youth Conference and the Youth Peace Travel Team. Together we will explore how we are the body of Christ and what that means for how we interact with one another and the world around us. Come for this awesome weekend full of games, singing, crafts, karaoke, friends, sledding/tubing and much more! Cost is $80 ($70 if you register by Dec. 31st). To register complete the Youth Retreat Registration Flyer.
