CBD is a Church Camp. It is affiliated with the Church of the Brethren, a denomination well represented with 55 congregations in central PA (Huntingdon, Centre, Blair, Bedford and Mifflin counties).
The Brethren put a strong emphasis on the New Testament scriptures and the teachings of Jesus. They believe in baptism by choice, that Jesus is the Son of God, that the Holy Spirit is God's presence in the world today, All members should read and study the Bible carefully, and that all believers should practice social justice, simple living, and peaceful nonresistance to violence.
Brethren believe each person needs to discover their own faith. No child attending CBD will be told what to believe, but will be challenged to learn from Jesus's words, lessons and model. Children of all faiths (or no faith) are invited to attend.
At CBD your child will have daily Bible Discovery, which will last about 30 minutes. They will be taught scriptural lessons from the Bible, and Jesus's life will be held up as an example. They will have morning watches and evening campfires that include biblical lessons, and before meals they will have a prayer.
Have you ever seen God at work and wondered why the moment was so clear? Have you wondered what you could do to try and connect with those moments and feelings? Paul's letter to the Church in Galatia will come alive this summer as we explore the fruit of the Spirit. Seeing this fruit all around assures us we have encountered God. We will see how these same fruit flow freely from us when we walk in the Spirit. Scripture is honest about how complicated life can be. The fruit of the Spirit show us we are on the right track as we observe, receive, and embody these virtues.
