Bliss Summit Bible Camp: The Small Camp With The Big Heart

By  Rick Kern

Their mission is simple: evangelism, growth, and service! And with that modest, yet passionate mandate, Bliss Summit Bible Camp (BSBC) is changing lives and bringing young people closer to Christ. Both their statement of faith and core values are impressive to say the least, reflecting a resolutely biblical framework that guides their efforts. But how exactly does this Bible camp, located in Bliss, New York make it happen?

“We really try to show them God’s love,” explains Apryl Weixmann the camp’s director, and make sure that they’re hearing the Gospel — not just once but during the week multiple times.” She continues, “And our staffers live out the Gospel and Jesus’ message of loving others.”  

Weixmann grew up in church and was saved at the age of 5-years old but it was at the same camp she nowdirects that her walk with God went to a new level. Her parents had gone on a mission trip to Haiti and Apryl wound up spending some time at BSBC. “I fell in love with camp,” she recalls, “with Bliss Summit in particular. I went back every year as a camper.” She continues, “Then, when I was old enough, I started working on staff.”

It was all so meaningful and helped her grow in the faith so much that when it came time for college, Apryl attended a Christian college that offered a Christian camping program. The unique concentration with its attending externship service at Christian camps brought tremendous vision to her. “It was a really great experience to see all the ways Christian camping can be used,” she reflects, “it showed me what Christian camping could grow into.”

Are You in the Right Relationship with Your Creator? 

 Steps To Salvation

 1. You Must Repent

You must repent of your sin and admit to God that you are a sinner. The Bible says: " ... that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance" (Acts 26:20)

2. You Must Believe

You must believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died on the cross to save you and was resurrected. " ... while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)

 3. You Must Ask

You must pray and ask our Lord Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and save you from an eternity in hell. "...with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:10)

4. You Must Receive

You must pray and tell the Lord that you wish to receive the wonderful gift of eternal life. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23)

5. Turn in faith to Jesus Christ

Turn in faith to Jesus Christ by praying a prayer like this:

"My Heavenly Father, I come to You admitting that I am a sinner. I repent in my sins and ask your forgiveness. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, died for my sins and was resurrected on the third day. I give my life to Jesus. I receive Jesus as my Savior and ask you to give me eternal life. I am saved in Jesus’ name. Amen."

Congratulations! Now it’s a good time to join one of the local Christian congregations, make friends with other Christians and start reading your Bible daily.

 God Bless You!
