Bridgeport in a (virtual) Box

A Resource of the North Texas Conference Center for Leadership Development

It has always been a dream of ours to take the wonderful curriculum that we use at summer camp and create a way for individual persons and churches to utilize it. We figured what better time to take a crack at it than when we are all stuck in our homes and trying to figure out how to minister to our children and youth in these times of social distancing. 

What we have tried to do is take the fun activities and Bible studies that you enjoy at Bridgeport Summer Camp and have created a DIY kit for using the curriculum in your home or with your children's and youth groups. Along with providing this curriculum to churches and families we will also have online virtual camps led by some of your favorite summer camp directors! 

 

How can I use Bridgeport in a Box?

Our curriculum is designed to be used in the home or as a church group. Our activities have been specifically tailored to meet the needs of both. Whether its sitting around a table with your kids or in front of a computer screen on Zoom, this curriculum can be a fun an engaging way to engage young people in their faith formation.

Modular Design

Each Lesson is comprised of four different modules that allow you to tailor the lessons to fit your needs. For example, many groups may already have a practice for opening or closing their time together. If thats the case use what you need and forget the rest.
