Church Camps

Church camps are designed to allow young people to associate with others of their own religious beliefs and values. These church camps are generally denominational specific and therefore specific in the religious doctrine taught.

Church Camps and Todays Society

It does not matter what religion you belong to or what belief system you exercise, it is obvious that the world is a different place for the rising generation. They are confronted with difficult choices that were not even around when many of us where their age. For this reason church camps are becoming very popular and are very beneficial to those who participate.

Structure

Church camps can vary widely in their program structure. Some camps may be held in a nature setting while others are held in a more classroom-like setting. In addition, some programs focus almost entirely on specific doctrine and the study of their religious scripture respective of their denomination while other camps incorporate scripture study and doctrinal discussion into a more general teaching and learning atmosphere that focus on life skills. Many of the lessons or workshops will touch on self worth struggles and the overall stresses that young people face as part of their everyday lives. These young people learn to lean on their families and their belief system to help them cope with the challenges that they face which are unique to their generation.

Church camps are designed to be a fun and relaxing environment. Many of the activities allow the young people to interact and develop team work. Many of the participants develop friendships that will last a lifetime, and also become a source of strength as they return to their everyday lives and struggles that they face at school, work, or home. It is important for young people to realize that they are not alone and that there are others that share their same values.

Church Camps and Leadership

Many of the leaders of the church camps and the instructors that teach are highly trained and have a great deal of experience working with youth and understanding the specific challenges they face. These leaders are committed to helping these young people gain confidence and spiritual strength while at church camp, and away from camp. Their main concern and focus is for the youth and their ability to lift and inspire them to live happy, productive lives.

A Personal Experience

One young women shares her personal church camp experience: "When I was a senior in high school, I had the opportunity to attend a church camp that my religious group put on. We went up high in the mountains and camped out for four days and three nights. Those were the most powerful days of my life. I struggled with depression and self-esteem issues. The lessons I learned and the skills I was taught by my wonderful church camp instructors gave me the necessary keys to cope with the struggles in my life. I left that church camp a better person and I am forever grateful for that experience…it truly changed my life."
