BCE partners with Christian schools, churches, and individuals who are running kids programs to do summer day camps. These camps are similar to many 'Vacation Bible School' programs in that include Bible stories, memory verses, skits, crafts, and games and snacks. What is different about our program is that we place a key emphasis on having our leaders build relationships with the children. Our desire is to place people over programs. Our group leaders are expected to get to know the children in the group well enough that they can speak God's love and life changing truth into the lives of the children, in personal ways.
For the remainder of the year, our staff and interns follow-up with the kids and youth who participated in the summer ministry by continuing our partnerships with those Churches and Christian schools independent clubs we did camps with. Follow-up with the children after summer programs is foundational in our ministry. We believe it is through consistent Christian teaching and discipleship that young people's lives will be changed.
