Brought to you by the people behind Orange, XP3 Students and the Phase Project, High School Camp is so much more than just a camp. It’s part of a strategy. Having only high schoolers in the room allows us to design the messages and content specifically for them and in a way that addresses the real world realities of a high school student. HSC is all about small group conversations where students can not only hear the message but interact, ask questions, debate, personalize and apply it. We want to elevate the role of the adult small group leader. Building the relationship between the small group leader and the student is essential to us so that the relationship can continue once camp is over.

WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?            
// HSC is all about small group conversations where students can not only hear the message but interact, ask questions, debate, personalize and apply it. One of the biggest differences is that more activities during the week will be small-group specific and sessions will be intentionally designed to stimulate group discussion. At High School Camp, we want to elevate the role of the adult small group leader. Building the relationship between the small group leader and the student is essential to us so that the relationship can continue once camp is over.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO ONLY HAVE HIGH SCHOOLERS IN THE ROOM?
// Based on our research from the Phase Project, we realized that high school students are in a phase that is both unique and critical to their faith development. Having only high schoolers in the room allows us to design the messages and content specifically for them and in a way that addresses the real world realities of a high school student that a middle schooler may simply not be facing yet.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SMALL GROUP BASED?                                                               // Being small groups based doesn’t simply mean we have small groups or that we provide questions. It means that everything happening at camp, from what’s said on stage, to the activities, to the accommodations to the meals—all of it— is designed intentionally with small groups in mind. Anyone who has done student ministry knows that camp is often the place where decisions are made and lives are changed. It’s a turning point. And we want students to have that experience alongside a caring adult who will still walk with them, still know their name, still ask them questions and still cheer for them long after camp is over.  

WHY SHOULD YOU COME TO HIGH SCHOOL CAMP?                                                                           //  It’s part of a gospel-centered and developmentally appropriate year-long strategy aimed at helping every family in your community understand their part in God’s story.
