    From a teenager's perspective, here are some camps/events that I enjoyed and are bible based:
    Student Life
    Centrifuge
    Winterfest - Gatlinburg's great!

    My students have done World Changers for the past six years. While they've had great experiences there, I'm looking next summer for something new, or possibly doing our own missions camp. "Super Summer" is great in Texas or Missouri, but I don't think they are anywhere else yet.

    Joshua,

    If you want the camp and missions experience rolled up into one, you might want to give M-fuge a try. The programming ("camp elements" such as worship, small-group time, fellowships, etc.) is on a higher level than world changers (which is a fine event). Also, several differing types of missions experiences are offered...from construction to children's ministry to nursing homes and more.

    Recently we fed a group of World Changers for 6 days. It's good to see youth actually doing missions. It sparked something in my 15yr old. Our church doesn't really have a youth group or go on mission trips. We're going to look around to other youth groups to see if he can go with them.

    WC is a great program... especially for our kids that are missions minded. I'm hoping a change of pace for this next summer will give us a shot in the arm. Something different is better oftentimes, and keeps us from getting in a rut.

    We took our youth to North Greenville University SC this year. We went to a duel camp Centrifuge/Missionfuge and it really worked out great. We have always went to either camps but this was our first duel camp. Our kids really enjoyed being able to make the choice which one they wanted to go to. And they also liked being able to share with one another their experiences at each camp.

    Next year we wanted to do another duel camp but North Greenville is not offering one. I think we have signed up for Mississippi next year. Can't wait!:thumbs: These truly are both awesome camps!
