Ski Club

Ms. Katy Arnson, Advisor

The BCACS Club members enjoy the benefits of reduced rates on lift tickets and equipment rentals at Bittersweet Ski Resort in Otsego, Michigan. In past years, I have promoted Friday night for members of our club to meet at the hill to enjoy some skiing/boarding/socializing together.

The club is an opportunity to save you money and create opportunities for our children to have fun together on the slopes. We try to keep it low-key. I send out e-mails to let members know if I will be going on a particular night, but you are free to go on your own anytime during the valid hours to reap the benefits of your membership.

Please contact me if you have questions

Girl & Boy Scouts
In Girl Scouts, through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

Bring It On Book Challenge

Liz Casterline, Advisor

In the Bring It On Book Challenge, 4th and 5th grade students work in teams, beginning in January, to read eight books and to correctly answer questions about the books. Winning teams then advance to a regional challenge and hope to become champions within our diocese! The Bring It On Book Challenge motivates students to read for enjoyment. This is an opportunity to practice teamwork and cooperation and to share quality children’s literature with friends. 


Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run® is a national 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Our core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development–their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors.
