Below is a listing and definition of each part of the GENERATE schedule.
Registration and Check-In:
The first thing you do when you arrive at camp.
At registration you will receive all final rooming assignments and keys.
Village Leadership Meeting:
Every student at camp will be placed in a small group Bible study called a “village,” and the “village leaders” will be the adults teaching the Bible study.
At this meeting, adults will be given a review of the Bible study for that day, and will be able to enjoy fellowship with all other village leaders.
Youth Minister's Meeting:
At the Youth Minister's Meeting the GENERATE staff and youth leaders are able to come together to share important information and news, prayer requests and advice.
This is also a time where the camp pastor and worship leader can share their heart for the direction of the worship service to follow this meeting.
Each night before the worship service, students will have the chance to gather together to prepare their hearts and minds for worship.
Each gathering will be unique, but all will be led with the intent of creating the right environment for worship.
This will be the evening worship service during each night of camp.
Church Group Time:
This precious time will be a chance for your group to come together to decompress and reflect on the day’s activities. Decisions that were made that day can be celebrated, and issues that need to be addressed within your group can happen during this time.
We all would love a peaceful night of rest at camp, so lights out symbolizes the time when all activity and noise needs to come to an end.
The adult leaders in your group will be the best ones to enforce this time.
On the third day of camp, a brief devotion and prayer time will be led by a GENERATE staff member.
This time is optional, and the location of this time will be announced the day before.
This is a time where your students are going through the morning devotional on their own.
Your group can meet in your assigned church group location, and then your students can spend some time alone going through their devotional that is found in their Camp Magazine.
This is the high-energy, light-hearted time of worship to “kick-start” the day’s activities.
Free Time Options:
Free time options will differ from day to day, and these options will be announced every morning at Kick Start.
These options could range from dodge ball tournaments, volleyball, creative art, and a talent show audition.
This is a time where all villages will take part in organized games.
Each day will have its own theme, and villages will compete against each other in these various games.
This is a time where all churches doing SERVE will come together to gather all needed tools, boxed lunches and other supplies for their mission site.
A GENERATE staff member will lead the group in a brief devotion an prayer, and then churches will be dismissed to their mission site.
One More Thing:
On nights 2 and 3 of camp, after Church Group Time, the GENERATE staff will host One More Thing.
These activities will be announced at Kick Start and could range from a camp talent show to games and tournaments.
This is a time when all keys need to be returned, and rooms emptied of belongings.
Need help packing up? Just let us know. We would love to make the check out process as smooth as possible.
