YOU BELONG AT CAMP | JULY 28 -AUG 1

This summer, we’ll take hundreds of 6th - 12th grade students to Lake Lavon, so they can hang out with some of their closest friends and experience the best week of the year.

 

GO TO CAMP!

Roll out to camp with your closest friends and hundreds of students, cool out by the pool, and spend some time learning from our pastors. Also bring sunscreen - definitely do that. In short, have the best week of your life at Camp, July 28 - August 1. Tickets cover the cost of your stay, meals, accommodations and all camp activities. Students are encouraged to bring cash for camp store goodies and merchandise. Tickets are non-refundable, but the sooner you sign-up, the more money you'll save.

SEND A STUDENT TO CAMP!

Your generosity can be the difference maker in a student’s life. When you give to the Camp Fund, you remove a major barrier to students hearing the Gospel and having their lives changed forever.

 

NEED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE?

Money shouldn’t be a barrier that prevents any student from attending Camp. We want to help. If you or a student you know could benefit from financial assistance, apply now. (For Anchor Church attendees)

 

VOLUNTEER AT CAMP!

We have a 7 to 1 student to volunteer ratio. We care about students and want to ensure that every student has a fun and safe trip. Not only is Camp a life changing week for students, it’s a week of life change for the volunteers, too! If you're interested in serving at Camp, apply now.

Testimonials

Life-changing, powerful, and uplifting. Disconnecting ourselves from the world to connect ourselves to God, all in the while of building relationships and creating long-lasting memories.
— Amari Smith, Senior at McKinney Boyd
Last year’s camp was eye opening, it helped me with a lot of my struggles. I realized that I was going through life alone, and that I could get help from others and God.
— Braeden Smith, Sophomore at Melissa High School
Camp was a good place to isolate myself from the outside world and focus on my relationship with God. It was also a place to bond and grow with friends.
— Christian Ziegler, Senior at McKinney Boyd
