Rooted: Young Men’s Spiritual Leadership Camp

  • This camp is meant for those who have interest in growing as a spiritual leader.
  • There will be some fun camp activities, but this is not the focus and it will not be like a regular week of church camp.
  • If you sign up you are agreeing to be ready to study, work hard, and be ready to grow.
  • The purpose of this camp is to develop leaders such as future preachers, elders, deacons, youth ministers, teachers, song leaders, evangelists, and other congregational leaders.
  • On Wednesday night the campers will be bused to local churches to present their lessons and take part in leading the service.

Camp Visits

  • We understand that you may wish to visit or call your camper during the week. Please keep in mind that visiting can often cause younger campers, who are having a great time, to become homesick. Since there is not a convenient time, and it can take away from the focus, we do not allow visits or calls during the week.
  • If your camper needs you, we will let them call. We do not let kids call home to “check-in” every day.
  • Please feel free to send camper mail to encourage your camper. Keep in mind that it may take a few days to arrive. Mail to 53 Iroquois Lane Conway, AR 72032.
