What does a day of Boot Camp look like?
Each day at Boot Camp is the chance to discover something new. Here’s how it breaks down:
Camp begins each morning with prayer. By 8:00 a.m., both staff and students are off to breakfast, followed by a classroom session led by Transform Student Ministries Interns.
These sessions are dynamic combinations of discussion and class work. We also use these sessions to train students how to lead Inductive Bible Studies so they walk away with a complete understanding of the process.
We also place emphasis on team work and fellowship. To encourage this, each camper will be part of a team at Boot Camp. After lunch, they’ll work together daily to compete in various team competitions. Although it is great to be on the winning team, the real value comes from working with others in an encouraging way and displaying Christ-like character.
After sports, there is an hour of free time followed by dinner.
Next, everyone joins together for a time of praise and worship before the evening session where speakers hit on topics relevant to this generation and straight from the Word.
Afterwards, students then meet with their teams for a time of encouragement and fellowship. Each team has two staff who will lead them in a time of sharing, praying, and discussion. Most students say team time is one of their favorite times at camp because you really get to know others and are able to challenge one another to live in light of the truths found in the Bible.
After eight days of such intensity, campers are surprised at the energy level they have. There’s something about Boot Camp—the in-depth training, the team environment, and the spiritual growth—that keeps them excited to go share what they’ve learned with others.
How old do you have to be to come to camp?
Boot Camp is for Middle/High School students ages 14-18
How do I register for camp?
Boot Camp spots are filled through an application process. Students interested in coming to Boot Camp will need to download the application. The application has a few essay questions and also requires a recommendation letter to be written by a Spiritual Leader.
What subject will be covered at Boot Camp 2013?
Take a look around and it’s obvious to see that marriage and families are under attack in our culture today. Despite all the trends and failures, the vast majority of students want to eventually marry and have children. It’s our desire to prepare students for their future by giving them tools to discover what the Word of God has to say about marriage, family, and singleness. Our study at Boot Camp 2013 will cover a variety of topics from singleness to dating and marriage; from submitting to authority to parenting; from godly purity to sex, and more!
