It's all about unity. Your students will be grouped together in villages and will spend their days together in Bible study and in dynamic recreation/group-building activities. You choose if you want your students combined with students from other churches or just students from your church.
You and your group will be ministering with one of our community mission partners for the week. Light construction, community outreach, backyard Bible clubs, and evangelism are just a few of the areas in which SERVE teams could take part. Your students will be in villages with students just from your church.
GUIDE is the best option for churches who desire to work in cooperation with the GENERATE staff. Instead of your adult chaperones leading your students in Bible study, recreation group building activities, and worship pre-gatherings, one of our Village Guides (a Generate staff member) will shepherd your group. Adults from your church will still be involved as participants with your students during the daily recreation session, maintaining a 1:5 student to adult ratio. All groups that choose the GUIDE option will be combined with students from other churches.
Want the burden of planning a camp off your shoulders, but also want the freedom to choose what you do each day? EXPLORE is for you. All lodging, meals, and services are included, but during the day, you plan your group’s activities. Do you need help making a plan for your day? Just let us know and we will be glad to help! Your students will be in villages with students from just your church.
One of the best ways to learn to be a disciple-maker is to learn alongside other disciple-makers. LEAD TEAMS allow for a small group of older students (10th grade and older) to be a part of GENERATE by serving alongside our staff. Your group will participate in staff devotions, meetings, development, worship, and areas of concentration such as production, recreation and support roles. Additionally, each student will receive a t-shirt, a selected book about serving, endorsements for future employment and spend time in mentorship moments with a staff member. LEAD TEAMS are limited to 20 spaces per week of camp.
