    Thank you for your interest in the Be a Teen Leader program at Bliss Summit Bible Camp. We look forward to a summer of self discovery, new friendships, and a lot of fun.

    BaTL (Be a Teen Leader) is a two year program which runs for 5 weeks each summer. The program trains those of ages 14 and 15 to be young leaders who will strengthen the Church and their community. Therefore, we are looking for applicants who show great potential to return home and make an impact in their local community groups.

    Upon acceptance, you will work with our staff and your peers to explore your individual strengths and limitations through group discussions, minimal lectures, conflict resolution, and many new experiences. You will have to work with others with different backgrounds, personalities, strengths, and weaknesses to accomplish extremely difficult tasks. Some will require strength and some a sharp mind but all will require teamwork.

    The cost of the program is $180. We encourage those accepted to the program to speak with their church about sponsoring them for the summer both as a commitment towards seeing them grow and develop personally and as an investment toward their future involvement in the church.

    No application decisions will be made until May 1, but preference will be given to applications submitted before that date. Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis thereafter.

    Bliss Summit Bible Camp is a ministry of:

    BCM International, Inc.
    201 Granite Run Dr., Suite 260
    Lancaster, PA 17610

    If you have any questions, please contact:

    Bliss Summit Bible Camp - 585-322-9975 (call or text)

    For those who participate in the BaTL program for the full five weeks, the cost of attending teen week as a camper will be only $50. Those who participate for less than the full 5 weeks will receive a discount of $25 per week that they participated.
