Camping has long been considered one of Christianity’s most effective methods for impacting lives and strengthening the Church. For decades, clergy and lay leaders in all denominations have realized that the challenge-oriented temporary community inherent in Christian camping is unsurpassed for awakening faith, instilling character, and implanting Godly values in participants, regardless of age or background. Christian camping is also considered by many to be the best means for inspiring an individual to a life of service.
