We are excited to see how God will work through this weekend, and our desire is for that to happen individually in the lives of young people and also collectively in entire communities of young people.
Our heart is to see communities strengthened spiritually through camp so that young people are praying for one another, encouraging one another, and spurring each other on throughout the weeks and months following camp.
Camp will look a little different from now on. Our desire is to help build a closer community within your youth group that lasts beyond camp. We know that there is power in this, and so to help see it achieved, we have made changes to the usual camp programme you will be used to. We want to provide more time for your youth group to be together, so this has included:
- bringing in volunteers to do duties instead of youth
- extra slots for free time
- a cafe open throughout each day
- the introduction of small groups after each session
Our goal with small groups is to provide space for deeper spiritual conversations, connections between youth and leaders, and reflection on what has been said in the sessions. We will be intentional to help you best prepare your leaders for these times. Ideally, we would hope for the majority of your leadership team to be at camp for these times, but if you are short on leaders then let us know – we have a few options so that these times can still be effective for your group!
