Don't want to wait until April?

Schedule a visit ANYTIME! We would love to have you join as our guest anytime! Contact us to setup your visit! Email or call 413-637-4673!


Who should come? Juniors and Seniors in High School and anyone else interested in checking out the BICS program.

What’s the cost? There is no cost to the student! Your preview of the BICS experience is on us, including meals (supper on Sunday; breakfast and lunch on Monday)!

What about parents? Parents/youth leaders are welcome to accompany their students, and there will be special Q&A’s specifically for parents. (Unaccompanied students under 18 must have a permission form signed by a parent/guardian).

Where will we stay? Housing is provided for prospective students free of charge in the dorms with the students or residence staff (capacity is limited). Parents (and students who choose not to stay in the dorms) may inquire about reduced rates for local lodging.

Can I come for Sunday morning?  Absolutely! You are welcome to come earlier on Sunday — and we encourage you to attend the worship service at Hope Church on Sunday morning at 10:45am. In fact, the BICS Ministry team will be leading most of the service that day! But the official kick-off is Sunday at 5:00pm.

Can I come for Monday only?  Yes! We recommend joining us on Sunday to get the full experience, but please feel free to attend on Monday only.
