It’s Camp Time!!
Camp is certainly one of our biggest highlights of the year for youth ministry. Each year we load up two buses with 130+ students and staff, make our way to the beach, and pray for sunshine and an epic round of Ultimate Octupus (yes, with a real, dead octopus).
We play games. We throw water balloons. We run around in the dark with glowsticks. However, don’t let that fool you. Camp is special because it is one weekend of the year where students from various backgrounds get to experience what it’s like to learn and live out the gospel together in a community.
Our teenagers are growing up as a part of a generation where very little is expected from our them. However, we know what happens when God gets a hold of a young heart. When God gets a hold of a young heart, they start pursuing what matters in life. When God gets a hold of a young heart, their gospel influence spans out like wildfire among their peers at school. When God gets a hold of a young heart, you see a 12th grader encouraging a 6th grader in their faith, you see a young girl stop gossiping and bullying, and you see teenagers who want more than the low standards expected of them.
When you send a group of youth to camp, you don’t send them to just play games, you send them into an opportunity for God to transform their hearts as they are launched into this world for His mission.
This is what we mean when we say, ‘It’s Camp Time’.
