Keswick ConVenture Camp

Although, not strictly a BBMC event, Keswick ConVenture Camp has sprung from the experience of a few BBMC members staying at The Barn (near Keswick) during previous Keswick Convention weeks, who enjoyed mountain-based activities during the day and the worship and teaching at the Convention during the evening. They felt that this combination of adventure and spiritual activities would be of benefit to others in the Brigade.

These BBMC leaders together with 2nd Reading BB ran a pilot camp in 2017, called BB Xtreme, at Grange in Borrowdale, with the help of two BB Canoe Club coaches, to prove the whole concept. We are grateful to the Seniors and leaders of 2nd Reading who acted as our guinea pigs.

They are grateful for the BBMC allowing its website to be used to publicise Keswick ConVenture. If you have come to this page via a direct link to Keswick ConVenture, please take a look at the rest of the BBMC website and particularly the BBMC's events page to see all the events that the BBMC is running this year.

Please also take a look at the Keswick ConVenture page to read more about the event, get a link to view photos from last year's event and to view or download a leaflet about it, and the Keswick Convention page to read about the BB's long association with the Convention, to get a link to the Keswick Convention's website and to listen to a new version of "We have an Anchor" that we enjoyed singing at last year's Convention.
