You serve students during a great and important time. We know that there are many resources, and even many camps available that can serve your needs. These days are critical in the faith formation of your students. At GENERATE our team will work hard to serve you and your needs well while creating an experience that will impact the other 51-weeks in your ministry year. We are strategic and intentional to create experiences where the name of Jesus is lifted up, where the Gospel is proclaimed through the preaching and studying of the Word, and where not only are students encouraged to take the next step in their faith journey, but the challenge and opportunity to be a person of global impact is clear. These experiences happen in times of personal devotion, in small group times of reading, listening and responding, in group building and serving, in times of corporate worship, and in strategic times with your church.

In the end, a camp can’t really change a life, but a real experience with God can. We don’t want to simply create moments. We want to partner with you and be a part of moments that matter through the work of God.
You know your students and their needs best. So we've created five unique GENERATE camp options for you to choose from.

CONNECT is a great option for community building within your group. Groups in this option (called “villages”) will be in Bible study for part of the day, and will also participate in group building activities, all lead by your adult leaders. As the group leader, you decide if you want your students combined with other students from other churches (called “combined”) or if you want your students to be in villages of just students from your church (called “independent”).

SERVE allows your group to get off campus and serve for much of the day with one of our Community Partners (our team will take care of the details). In this option, your village will be students just from your church.

EXPLORE allows you to decide how you want to spend your day from 10:00 AM through dinner. If you want to be off campus enjoying what the region has to offer, go for it! In this option, your students will also be in villages with students from your group. Note: Your selection needs to be for the entire week rather than by the day.

GUIDE is the best option for churches who desire to work in cooperation with the GENERATE staff. Instead of your adult chaperones leading your students in Bible study, recreation group building activities, and worship pre-gatherings, one of our Village Guides (a GENERATE staff member) will shepherd your group. Adults from your church will still be involved as participants with your students during the daily recreation session, maintaining a 1:5 student to adult ratio. All groups that choose the GUIDE option will be combined with students from other churches.

LEAD TEAM: One of the best ways to learn to be a disciple-maker is to learn alongside other disciple-makers. LEAD TEAMS allow for a small group of older students (10th grade and older) to be a part of GENERATE by serving alongside our staff. Your group will participate in staff devotions, meetings, development, worship, and areas of concentration such as production, recreation, and support roles. Additionally, each student will receive a t-shirt, endorsements for future employment, and spend time in mentorship moments with a staff member. LEAD TEAM is limited to 20 spaces.

*The camp option that you choose (CONNECT, SERVE, etc.) needs to be for the entire week of camp rather than by the day. These options (CONNECT, SERVE, etc.) are not a part of the Beach Camp schedule.
You as a leader need to simply find what model camp best fits your needs for your ministry. At GENERATE, we are intentional with every aspect of the camp experience. Our number one goal is to support you and your local ministry. You know your students best, so we strive to give you plenty of options to meet them where they are and challenge them to take the next step in their faith journey. We also know that you and the adults in your group are the ones who go home with your students, so we design the camp experience to make sure community, relationships, and connections continue at home. Although our staff may be awesome at reaching out to your students, our prayer is for you and the adults in your group to be the true heroes of the week. Our team is here to support you and your team.

In case you need to know, all GENERATE staff undergoes a state and federal background screenings, motor vehicle reporting for those who drive company vehicles, and child protection screening. Because of the day we live in, GENERATE seeks to provide the safest environment possible for your students.
GENERATE is designed for students that are 6th-12 graders, graduates, and the adults that come with the group.

Whether you promote 6th graders prior to the summer or after, they will be classified as 6th graders and would be welcome to join us for the week.
