Mission Statement

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with the thankfulness. See to it 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

What is CAMPS?

CAMPS is a ministry to youth with a mission:


  1. That all participants come to a saving, personal relationship with Jesus Christ
  2. That Christian community be formed and lived
  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.

"Teens who participate in CAMPS report that the message of truth that they hear is that they have value, that they are loved personally, and there is a unique purpose in their lives has a powerful impact - and for too many, CAMPS is the first place they have heard it."

"CAMPS is more than a camp; it's a new way of life. Success for CAMPS isn't what happens while the teens are at CAMPS. Success is what happens after their CAMPS experience."
