Base Camp was founded on the following four concepts that have become the pillars of our existence. During your time at Base Camp you will become accustomed to these pillars through our daily routine and activities.
Intimacy is the operative word at Base Camp. Base Campers will focus on building relationships with each other and with God. Venturing to work, live, and worship together in these God-centered surroundings creates tight friendships with fellow campers while awakening a desire to know the Creator better. The experience of being so close to nature and each other promises to transform attitudes and perspectives.
Base Campers can expect to experience a distinctive environment different from other, more traditional camps. Matchless surroundings, a rustic atmosphere, and a touch of adventure bring campers closer to nature in more ways than ever before. This intentional approach is geared to help teens get away from what is comfortable and familiar. At Base Camp, teens will be able to have an unencumbered focus on their relationship with their God.
Getting back to the basics is what Base Camp is all about; embracing the adventure of outdoor living, taking on conditions a bit more rugged than usual, and resting in the awesome beauty of God’s nature. The adventure will be enhanced by the absence of most modern conveniences. Well, maybe not all. Campers may still use deodorant and toothpaste, and are encouraged to do so. But remember, Base Camp is an authentic, back to nature, one-with-the-land, “Yeah, we went camping!” kind of camp.
Every day Base Campers will be challenged to do something that is not easy and may even be uncomfortable. As a group and as individuals, campers will have tasks to complete and challenges to accomplish. Each endeavor is structured to build character, stretch boundaries, and enable them to learn more about our limitless God. By the end of the week, teens will be astounded by what they have learned about themselves and what they were able to achieve.
