Online Summer Camp Registration Open!
This past summer 454 children, youth and adults attended CBD summer camps. That was a slightly larger group than we had the past few years! Campers grew in faith and understanding, as well as made new friends, were challenged by new experiences and had fun!

The 2019 Summer Schedule is out, and nearly 330 children and youth are already registered for camp. Online registration is open, and Summer Camp Registration Forms have been mailed to past campers. Middle PA District Brethren Churches and Center Association American Baptist Churches have received Registration Forms too.

If you are applying for a scholarship or extended payments you cannot register online, but rather, you need to complete the Summer Camp Registration Form.

Make plans now for the best week of your summer. There are twenty camps to choose from, including the new Cooking Camp! At Camp Blue Diamond you'll be sure to grow in faith, have fun, make new friends, and have an adventure! Check out the Summer Camp Page, then go to your favorite camp to discover dates, fees and photos.






Annual Dinners: March 22 & 23! Blue Skies Ahead!
Enjoy a fun, relaxing evening on either Friday or Saturday, March 22nd or 23rd at one of the most beautiful and peaceful places on Earth, CBD. Funds raised at this year’s dinners will go toward new climbing tower additions, and summer camp expenses!

Come enjoy friends old and new! You'll learn about summer camp, and our upcoming building projects! Dinner will be a delicious roast beef dinner with all the trimmings. Entertainment will be camp favorite Joseph Helfrich, who will share his stories and songs with us! Tickets are $50 and are available from your church's waiter. Or print off the Annual Dinner Flyer, and mail it back to Camp Blue Diamond. Don't worry if your church doesn't have a waiter, there is always room for you at CBD!

Spring Work Day: April 6
This is an opportunity to work side-by-side to help camp get ready for summer camp! Some of the projects for the day include: wood cutting, splitting and stacking, staining cabins, carpentry projects, raking, repairing and cleaning. Spring Work Day starts with pancakes and sausage served from 7:30 to 8:00. Jobs will be assigned at 8:00. A hearty lunch will be served at noon. If you have a splitter, chainsaw or truck for hauling wood, please bring them along.

Let us know you are coming by contacting Camp Blue Diamond or call (814) 667-2355. Let us know how many people are coming and if you want to do a specific job. Jr. High and Youth groups with adult leaders are welcome. See you on April 6th!



Father/Son Retreat: April 12/13

The Father/Son Retreat is a terrific time for sons and dads (grandpas) to spend time together.  The retreat begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday and closes at 3 p.m. Saturday. Come join us as we explore the Bible story of ‘Joseph & His Brothers’, a fascinating tale about sibling rivalry, danger, forgiveness and love. In addition to Bible time, we’ll play games, go on a night-hike, fish and canoe, cook over a fire, do pine cone crafts, make walking sticks and ride the Giant Swing. Be sure to bring your sleeping bag, pillow and flashlight.   Cost is:  $35 for adults, $25 for boys in grades K-8.  Register by April 8th with a Father/Son Registration Form. Mail your registration to: Camp Blue Diamond, P.O. Box 240, Petersburg, PA 16669.

Quilt & Craft Camp - Sew Peace
April 26-28

The weekend is for crafts of all types.  Bring your quilt work, cross stitch, knitting, scrap booking, etc… and join the fun! Workshops will be available on Saturday offering opportunities to learn a new skill! New this year is a Friday trip to Mary Lee’s Fabric Shop in Belleville! To register complete the Quilt and Craft Camp Brochure.




Senior Adult Day: May 31st
You are invited to join us for a day full of fellowship, inspiration, adventure and fun, as we gather to hear the story of Peggy Ann Bradnick
On a warm spring afternoon in 1966, Peggy Ann was dragged into the mountains near her home in Shade Gap by a disturbed kidnapper.  Fifty plus years later she continues to tell the story of the weeklong horror that changed her life. Peggy Ann will share how her faith saw her through the ordeal and continues to shape who she is as a child of God.

Cost for the day is $10, which includes a morning snack, programming and lunch. A craft, camp tours and the climbing tower with zipline will be available too. For those who don't want to cook supper, a take home, brown bag supper is $3 extra. To register, complete the Sr. Adult Day Registration Form and mail it to CBD.
