Mark your calendars, invite your friends, and get ready for the best week of the year! This will be an exciting year as we welcome several new churches and we re-brand camp with a new name: Encounter Week!
So often in scripture we see the story of God’s people encountering their God in encounters that radically change their lives! One instance is in Exodus 19 when we first see Moses go to Mt. Sinai and meet with God – Moses’ life and the lives of God’s people, the Hebrews, are changed because of those encounters with their God. As we prepare for camp, our prayer is that Encounter Week would be just that – a week encompassed by an encounter with the living God that will forever change who we are!

If there are extenuating circumstances that prevent you from being able to pay full price for camp, please download and complete a Scholarship Application. You can email the completed application to email@example.com or turn it in to any of our youth staff! We never want financial hardship to prevent anyone from going to camp!
Time Away Form
If a camper must leave camp for any reason during the week, we need a completed Time Away Form. This ensures the safety of our students throughout the week! Please head over to FBCA.org/TimeAway to complete that if needed!
We will have two options for Pre-Camp Parent Meetings as we prepare for Youth Camp 2017. Both meetings will provide the same information to help you to know how to prepare for camp, how to pray for your student and for camp, and will allow opportunities for you encourage your student during camp.
Pre-Camp Parent Meetings
- Sunday, May 21 at 5:00 PM, Room 150 in the Student Center
- Wednesday, May 24, at 7:00 PM, Room 150 in the Student Center
We also want to invite our parents to join us for a Post-Camp Parent Meeting on Friday morning, June 9, at 11:00AM, an hour prior to students arriving at the church. In this meeting we will share with you what went on at Youth Camp, show you some video highlights of the week, share some ideas of how you can help your student to process after camp, and give you the opportunity to make some posters and banners to help welcome our students home from camp.
Post-Camp Parent Meeting
- Friday, June 9 at 11:00AM
