WORK TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY
For more than 20 years, BCA'S mission has been to improve the quality of life in the Butner community. Our members along with volunteers from the community sponsor various activities throughout the year to promote fellowship, entertainment, social awareness, and the history of Camp Butner. We strive to make our community a better place to work and live. Find out how you can contribute to the BCA organization through donations of money and time as a member or volunteer.
We are a high energy group with lots of ideas on how to improve our quality of life but we need more members and volunteers who are as passionate about living in Butner as we are. Join us and help make a difference.
The main focus of the BCA is to promote social involvement within the Butner area community and to offer opportunities of service and programming for the benefit and advancement of the local citizens. The long-term goal is to increase the availability and quality of community events and services that will further bring the community together and provide a richer quality of life that many other communities already enjoy.
