MISSION AND PURPOSE



“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.”                                                     Colossians 2: 6-8

                                                                                                                            

        

We are excited to be returning to another great adventure at Lakeside in Pittsfield, MA on August  to celebrate the 36th “Best Week of Your Life!.” 


     What is C.A.M.P.S.?

          CAMPS is a ministry to youth with a three-fold mission:                                               

                                1.) That all participants come to a saving, personal

                                      relationship with Jesus Christ;

                                2.) That Christian community be formed and lived; and

                                3.) That continued spiritual growth and commitment be  

                                      fostered.


     The CAMPS mission is realized through staff members who form a community of people working together. This community is made up of individuals who love Christ, have a personal relationship with Him and a desire to live and spread His Good News. These individuals are dedicated to their own spiritual growth and to know, love and serve Christ in many and convincing ways. Worship, personal prayer and devotions, faith sharing and Bible study are part of their lives. They are unambiguous Christian disciples. They do not live segmented lives, giving some time to God, some time to school, work or business, while keeping parts to themselves. They live their lives in the presence of God under His authority and for His honor and glory! This is what the Christian life is all about.
