For many, Christian camps have played a very special role in their lives.
If you’ve ever worked with young people, you understand the power of getting them away from the stress of college and busyness. It is always amazing to see how a young person can change within a week, if they unplug, and allow their hearts connect with God. Individuals who have great memories of summer camp love to tell their tales and even send their own kids to the same camp they loved as a child. Ask them why they loved it and figure out why their children loved it, too. Though Christian youth camp sites and brochures are really useful, getting first hand recommendations from the people you trust says a lot.
Another fantastic way to select the ideal youth camp is to consult your church or churches in your area to learn what youth retreats they hold throughout the year. Many churches wear really enjoyable and enriching retreats for kids and teens, and as they’re local, they generally use a youth camp that isn’t too far off or provide the transportation required for the campers there. The bus ride to camp could be quite an experience!
Eventually, understanding that a Christian camp is licensed with a respectable association lets you know they’re dedicated to excellence by upholding criteria above state licensing. Search on the internet for Christian camping associations to locate Christian youth camps in your area and also to find out if the camp you are thinking about is affiliated.
