Theme - Our 2017 theme is Set/Apart. You are a chosen generation! 1 Peter 2:9. This will be an unforgettable week in the life of your youth ministry. At Journey Week, your students and leaders will experience Christ through powerful communicators and a worship team who unpacks the truth of God's Word in a relevant, transforming way.
Teams – Campers will be given Team assignments on Monday during Late Night. Teams will gather each day in small group. The purpose of Teams is to teach Bible truths that apply to Team member's life in a practical, relevant way and allow Team members to build friendships with campers from different churches. Enclosed is a Total Camper List to help us break students into Teams. Please send the Total Camper List with your pre-registration and bring an updated copy with all camper's names, grades, and t-shirt sizes. This ensures that each camper will get the t-shirt they pre-registered for.
Team Leaders—Team Leaders will be needed to make Teams possible. Team Leaders will be responsible for leading daily small group discussions with their team following large group sessions. Curriculum will be provided as well as on-site leader discussions before each session.
Recreation – Recreation will be divided into two parts: TRACS and Church Tournaments. Students will have the opportunity to sign up to participate in TRACS which consist of various sports, games and academic tournaments. Students will can also create teams for Church tournaments. Please pack extra clothes for recreation time.
