CBD is a Church Camp. It is affiliated with the Church of the Brethren, a denomination well represented with 54 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.
We know that loves comes from God, and sometimes we experience it directly. More often, God's love is manifest in relationships of all kinds that weave in and out of our lives. We see God's love in close friends and family --those we are born into and those we choose along the way. We see God in quiet moments where we are present with each other and in acts of profound grace when we have been far apart. We hear God in life guiding and life changing words of truth from those who know and love us. We know that such love links our lives, teaching us about commitment, intimacy, grace, and faith. As we seek to create and strengthen life-giving relationships, we remember that such love flows from God, links us all together, and we give thanks.
