Why should my teen(s) go to this camp?
Approximately 70% of young people from Christian homes abandon the Church by age 18(ref)
, many claiming that the Bible is unreliable or out-of-date. For those that remain in the faith, their walk is hampered by challenges and temptations for which they are often ill-equipped to address. Our humanistic culture is fundamentally at odds with Christian values, and many find it increasingly difficult to proclaim their faith publicly.

Many parents (and grandparents) have seen their children turned against the faith by humanistic teaching in secular institutions and wonder how it could possibly have happened to them when they were brought up in a Christian home. For many the answer is that they were simply not prepared to fulfill 1 Peter 3:15.
‘…but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you…’
Our Christian young people need to be immunized against the onslaught of humanistic and pluralistic teaching being constantly advanced on them through media, education and culture.
The goal of this camp is to train young minds to defend their faith and apply the truth of the Bible to all areas of their life. The subjects taught will include not only biblical creation, but many other vital areas of apologetics and Christian living, enabling students to transform the culture they live in by boldly proclaiming the truth of God’s word.
