Forget about stressing over the details and focus your energy on cultivating community in your youth group. Join us for 6 days, 5 nights of PASSPORTmissions and experience the excitement of summer camp with the adventure of a mission trip. Your students will grow closer to Jesus and discover new friends throughout the week while putting faith into action to make a difference in the world.
Our youth felt inspired by their week and we had fun. This continues to be the highlight of their year and one of the most intentional and intensive times of their spiritual growth.
–Jennifer Ingold Asbill, Zebulon Baptist Church, NC
I am always impressed at how well Passport runs camp – it’s such a holistic experience, and has created an undercurrent in our youth group that lasts far beyond the week we’re here.
Molly Brittain, Talbot Park Baptist Church, VA
Space for youth to encounter Christ, meet new friends, see a different way of life and part of the world.

What To Expect:
Local Missions That Have A Lasting Impact
Paired with local organizations, your students will have the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ with three hours of hands-on missions. PASSPORT works with community leaders to ensure that all mission projects offer sustainable value to the communities we serve.
Low-Pressure Worship Experience Aimed At Equipping Students For A Lifetime Of Faith
Our team works all year thoughtfully preparing messages that create meaningful conversations within your group, and deepen each student’s relationship with Jesus. Your students will find PASSPORT is an intimate, grace-filled, low-pressure environment where they can explore and grow their relationship with Jesus.
Programming That Puts An Emphasis On Youth Group Relationship
Think of us as your week-long ministry support staff; we take care of the logistics and programming of camp, and give you the freedom to focus on the spiritual growth of your students while cultivating community within your group.

Doing Missions Differently
At PASSPORTmissions, your students will spend three hours ‘doing missions differently’ throughout the community. To us, that means humbling serving others as the hands and feet of Christ. Committed to a sustainable missions model, we partner with local agencies to offer students the chance to do meaningful work and learn about the year-long ministries of our partners. We try to help our campers understand that ‘doing missions differently’ means that we serve others not for our own glory, ‘feel-goods’ or moving Instagram post (#blessed), but because we are called to help make Earth as it is in heaven.
Your students will have the opportunity to meet and learn from our diverse and incredible staff. PASSPORT employs called & committed Christian women and men for our summer teams. Encountering a relatable Christian role model can change a student’s life, encourage them as followers of Christ, and help them understand what faith lived looks like.
Exciting Camp Parties
We have three parties and one goal – FUN!
Rec Party: At the rec party students will compete in teams with their Bible Study Group in a variety of fun and silly games. Youth and adults should come dressed to get sweaty!
Camp Dance: A time to dance, play, and sing with new friends, this costumed event is fun for all. Staff judges will determine which group is best dressed. The key is to come dressed with your group!
Variety Show: The variety show allows campers an avenue of self-expression with an audience of their peers. Acts will be chosen based on variety, appropriateness, creativity, church group representation, quality, and time constraints.
Ecumenical Student-Led Worship
While some programs hire professional speakers and musicians who come to the worship stage from a secluded green room, Passport’s college aged staffers engage with your students throughout the day. Staffers learn their names, working and playing alongside them. We feel this gives our staff an authenticity as they come from the audience to lead worship each evening. With a max capacity of 350 students per session, PASSPORT intentionally creates an intimate, grace-filled, low-pressure worship environment.
Fresh Programming Rooted in Scripture
The PASSPORT team crafts creative and thoughtful curriculum for Bible Study. Building on itself throughout the week, Bible Study is time to explore the yearly theme and dig deep into the daily scripture passages. Incorporating art projects, story telling, quiet moments and group work, learners of all styles will be engaged. Rather than being relegated to consumers, PASSPORT encourages campers to be active participants offering students opportunities to lead in Bible Study, worship, missions, and other aspects of camp.
