It's time to break the Christian Camp stereotype! Although it is still considered of the best place to connect with God, the camp setting has changed and it's time to let the false images of mud, mosquitoes, sweat and outhouses be laid to rest. Maybe it was that way in the past but it's so much more than that today! Today the camp setting is a year-round retreat center designed to serve people of all ages and the church in achieving its Christian education goals. This seminar will change your thinking about "camp" by sharing more than a dozen ways in which the "camp" setting (better known as the "retreat" center) can impact your ministry for the glory of God.
