Winter Camp 2019

As Tex eloquently described in her article God of every season, this place is filled with love and joy and meaningful experiences any time of year.  That’s one of the reasons we are so excited about winter camp.  Other reasons we are excited: this winter will bring 6 winter weekends.  One of those is Summit High which is a weekend for teenagers to relax, hang out together and be at Bethany Birches.  See dates in the program chart within this newsletter. We are also excited about our developing skills track which will include the improved back country ski experience and ice fishing.  New for this year within the ski program is expanded terrain!  We have cleared some woods areas and can ski more of the property more safely.  Ice fishing will be brought to us by a local expert and long-time camp family.  We hope to see you at a winter camp as a camper or volunteer!  Bring this article along with you this winter to get half off a winter sweatshirt!

 

Work Day Cancelled!

Hey all! The weather strikes again. Since we are expecting snow all day tomorrow, it seems best to NOT be out raking leaves.

However, if you have some free time to give over the next two weeks or so, then we would love your help clearing trails out in the woods.
Let us know what works for your schedule and we will provide the lunch.

Thanks!

2018 Fall Work Day

Fall has so many wonderful, seasonal traditions that we all look forward to each year.  These include things like pumpkin spice flavored everything, football games, apple picking, wearing our coziest sweaters- and of course the BBC Annual Fall Work Day!  This is always a great time to get together with our fabulous BBC community in the crisp, fresh air and help prep camp for winter.  This year we are hoping to do a lot of leaf raking, back country ski trail clearing, buttoning up the garden, and some organizing.  Can you help us?

We have set the date for October 27th, from 9:30am-3:00pm, with a hearty lunch provided at 12:30pm. There will be coffee, snacks, and fresh pressed cider to enjoy all day as well.

Feel free to come for some or all of the day.  There will be work available for any age/skill level.  AND – will also have child care provided from 9:30am until lunch.  So bring your kiddos, drop em off and get to work!  Please rsvp if you need childcare (no charge) to camp@bethanybirches.org.  Include number and age of kiddos.

 

Hope to see you there!
