Camp Reinvented

Camp Reinvented

Westin was sitting alone outside the YFC Camp club room.

His life up to this point was hard; he was socially awkward and not comfortable in the large group of other students at camp. He didn’t want to come inside but longed to hear more of the story of Jesus as it was being unpacked and shared. 

After club, Westin’s leader spent some focused one-on-one time with him and learned more of his story. That night, everything changed for Westin as he made the decision to follow Jesus. He said “YES”!

Many people, maybe yourself included, can point to a camp experience that ignited their faith in Jesus. This is why YFC Camp has become such a pivotal place to help kids take that next step in their faith; whether accepting Jesus for the first time or solidifying their decision as a follower of His.

So, when COVID-19 threw a curveball at the traditional model of summer camp, YFC responded.

With safety as a paramount priority, YFC is pivoting from the traditional model of summer camp for 2021 to something more nimble. 

In place of regionally based overnight camps led by YFC’s National Camp Team, efforts will be strategically focused on providing resources, training and support to all 140 YFC chapters across the country for a more localized camp expression.

This summer, YFC is committed to providing innovative and engaging summer opportunities so young people will experience:

The thrill of a new adventure

Purposeful conversation with caring, Christian adults

A change of scenery and a break from their normal environment

Friendships strengthened by shared experiences

An opportunity to begin relationship with Jesus

A key benefit of this revised approach is that more kids than ever can experience “camp” as every local YFC chapter will be resourced for a great summer ministry strategy.

What can you do? 

In previous years, we asked for $450 to sponsor one camper. This year, that level of investment will impact the lives of many more.

Would you prayerfully consider a Special Gift today so that hundreds more kids like Westin can experience the life changing love of Jesus this summer?
