Youth Schedules

Your day at a glance

With three programs to choose from, PASSPORT youth camps offer fun, well planned weeks of ministry with students. You will feel right at home with others students who love Jesus and want to live a life that reflects his love in the world.

Morning Devotion

8:30 a.m. – 9 a.m.

Just after breakfast, morning devotions begin our discussion of the theme for the day. By setting the daily tone, each devotion focuses attention on a personal relationship with Christ and readies campers to hear God speak through other program activities.

Morning Celebration

9 – 9:30 a.m.

Energy is key during Morning Celebration! After 30 minutes of songs, laughter, announcements, and awards, campers are awake and ready to head off to Bible study with their new friends.

Bible Study

9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

By studying scripture together, students will build community through common experiences and fresh encounters with Christ. Bible study leaders spend an intensive 10-day training period prior to camp, which equips them to deal with the diverse needs each week’s group will bring.

Mission Projects

11 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

An extension of Bible Study, each mission project is designed to put the Bible into practice. From ministering to senior adults who need a friend, to caring for children who need shelter and a meal, to helping others repair their homes, PASSPORT’s mission projects are energetic, insightful and rich. Each mission project group will eat lunch on site.

Free Time

2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Students may choose to spend their time playing informal games, attending free time activities or just hanging out with their friends. Led by different PASSPORT staffers each afternoon, the free time activities are designed to provide fun, active, and thought-provoking options for campers.

Worship

7 – 8 p.m.

Nightly gatherings provide students with a sacred space and time to worship. Set inside the context of the daily theme, campers will be asked to consider new thoughts about God, their faith in Jesus Christ and how their beliefs intersect with the world around them. PASSPORT worship is creative, reflective, and youth-oriented, rather than style specific. It seeks to expose campers to new ways of participating in worship through music, silence, prayer, and more.

Nightly Party

9– 10 p.m.

The Variety Show, a Costume Dance, and an outdoor Rec Party all have one goal: FUN! Learn more about camp parties.
* New Group Tip: Experienced campers will come ready with an act for the variety show and a costume for the themed dance.

Church Group Devotions

10 – 11 p.m.

Your youth group will have the opportunity to gather together at the close of the evening for devotion and discussion of the day’s events. Guides will be provided as a resource for group leaders to use as they wish in processing the day together.
