The first campers at camp this summer were birthday campers! On 2 different occasions campers got to celebrate their birthday at Bethany Birches. Sparkles led their favorite camp activities while parents, family and friends brought food and supplies for the party. Everyone enjoyed BBC’s beautiful view and loads of fun. One camper mom commented, “Are you planning to do this next year? I hope so; my daughter is already planning her next birthday!” Check with BBC in the fall for the possibility of hosting your birthday party here at no cost!
The other day Tuna posted this picture of me trying to stay ahead of leaf raking. Mowing leaves reminded me of plowing/shoveling snow. My heart sunk as I remembered how much harder it is to both shovel snow and drive in snow compared to leaves! Then I remembered the beauty of winter, the memories I’ve created while skiing down East Fall, giggling the whole way down the BBC tube run or heading deep into the quiet woods on my snowshoes. BBC is a winter wonderland. Consider coming to check it out!
The Bethany Birches Cabin is a great spot to enjoy every aspect of winter…
…Head to the nearby mountains for some of the best skiing in the northeast. (Killington Mountain or Okemo Mountain)
…Tube down BBC’s 1/5 mile tube run on tube park quality tubes for a memorable adventure
…Strap on snowshoes or cross country skis and explore the 100 acres of camp.
…Snowmobile the VAST trail which runs through camp property and can take you anwhere in the state of VT.
…Or simply watch the snow fall from a cozy cabin.
No matter the type of adventure you enjoy – BBC is a cozy, affordable place to stay. The cabin is kid friendly and a great place for groups of any kind to gather!*
If you’re coming to ski – don’t’ miss out on Killington’s early bird deals ($58 Weekend Tix/$38 Mid Week Tix offered through 10/17) Keep in mind, Killington is open until May and skiing in April can be just as fun as skiing in Feb!
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!
Amber Bergey, Program Director says one thing she loves about her job is interacting with people who rent the camp property.
Some of the stuff renters say
We like being right at camp with “other” opportunities available like tubing, LOTS of room, washer, dryer, woodstove for drying out and warming up. We loved being able to crash together, and enjoyed having you all (staff) right there during the day. The setting is absolutely gorgeous! THE PRICE IS RIGHT 🙂 – Loureen Landis
We enjoy renting the BBC cabin because it fits our whole family (12-15 of us), it is close to many ski resorts, and the tubing hill is lots of fun!! It is also nice to know that we are supporting BBC by renting the cabin during the off season! – Erica Merrill
We love staying at BBC to escape our busy lives and the camp always feels like a home away from home to us. It’s a great way to foster a relationship with God through nature while supporting the camp. – Jen Yoder
