See What People Are Saying (Youth Camp)

“Summer is a time for students to refuel and fortify their relationships with God. Camp is the ideal getaway for your child to be challenged and pushed in a direction of empowerment and calling. Many of my students that have gone to summer camp can say that they received their life’s calling at camp, including myself. I hope that you would make this opportunity an investment in your child’s future.”

“Each year, I go to youth camp at the Philip Bongiorno Conference Center the week after school lets out, and each year is a new, wondrous adventure into the depth of my faith.  But there was one year that was the most memorable, one year that stood out among the rest, one year that would change my life forever…  the Lord had healed me of the spiritual drought that had settled inside of my soul.  I began to realize that God needed to be the center of my life.  That He has always been beside me, just waiting for me to talk to Him.   All I had to do was run to Him.  It was that easy.  Spiritual things like that don’t happen everyday. It was certainly life changing.  No, it was more than life changing, it was a change for eternity.”

“This week at camp was awesome! It was the best camp I’ve ever had! God answered a prayer of mine to show His anointing on my life and to refresh my soul. He did that and released me from depression that has been ‘dragging’ me down and keeping me from my potential in Him… I will continue to pray for the youth camps following and in general all the events there!”
