What are the camps actually like?
Camps provide an incredible opportunity for countless numbers of young people to hear and respond to the message of Jesus Christ. For some the camp is the first time they have heard about Jesus, for others it’s an encouraging week to deepen and strengthen their faith.
The camps are focused on teaching the young people about God, helping them with their English and having as much fun as possible completing the first two aims. The programme is packed from start to finish with Bible teaching, english ‘hours’, activities, games, sports, craft, singing, trips out, seminar topics and small discussion groups. There’s always far too much food, no time to be bored, and plenty of new people to meet.
The camps are similar, yet different. Different in size: a camp could have anything from 20-75 teenagers. Some camps are residential, whilst others are day camps. Certain camps have a distinctive evangelistic feel with a majority of non-Christians, whilst others are made up of a majority of Christians who regularly attend a youth group.
Following each camp the churches follow up the work through their regular youth work and here appropriate ACORN
