BCA Christmas Program: A Baby is Bjorn

The talented Music and Theater class worked hard all fall to present the BCA Christmas program: A Baby is Bjorn.  The music was all very familiar as it used Abba songs with the words changed to tell the Christmas story!  It was a fun night of new Christmas songs. 

 The three Narrators: James Bond, The Fairy Godmother & Sofie

BCA Secondary Retreat Fall 2010

Each fall the BCA secondary students spend a few days at a wonderful conference center near Bran. It's a time for them to develop stronger relationships with each other and with the Lord!  The retreat began with a 3 hour train ride north the city of Brasov!

This year our speaker was David Wright who shared with the students about developing a stronger relationship with the Lord.

Some of the eleventh graders relax on a swing!
The students really enjoy the opportunity to get out of the city and just be in the outdoors!

Lots of hustling as the soccer field turned into ultimate Frisbee!

Mr. P. and Mr. McNew enjoy just watching the students have fun!

BCA Outdoor School 2010

The 7th and 8th Grade of BCA spent a weekend at Outdoor School! They had 4 days up at Camp Living Water, the Mather's camp, studying God's fabulous creation and thinking about God as creator of all!!

Each morning the students met for an overview of the program and instructions on what would take place during the day!

Friday they did a plot study and looked at a small 1 meter square of a field to find as much life as was there!
Then they worked in teams to record their observations

There were two hikes through the woods as they discussed the ecology of the forest

Saturday afternoon was spent studying the life in the creek

The tour of a monastery close to the camp!
