Ruston, LA | June 11-15, 2018 (Almost Full!)

 

Louisiana Tech University, nestled in the heart of Ruston, LA, provides a wonderful place for students to grow in their walk with the Lord. From the cozy atmosphere of Howard auditorium to the fantastic dining options (including a Chick-Fil-A!), Louisiana Tech will quickly become a group favorite. Recently, LA Tech opened a state-of-the-art recreation facility with a rock wall, billiards, basketball courts and an indoor and outdoor pool. Needless to say, the Lambright Sports and Wellness Center will be the place to be each afternoon. With a Starbucks just down the road, all of your camp necessities can be met at Louisiana Tech.

Sleeping and Eating: Most dorms house 2 per room, with an adjoining bathroom or community-style bath. (Remember we assign housing based on the date deposits are received.) Many meal options are available at LA Tech including a full-service cafeteria, Chick-Fil-A and McAlister’s Deli. Students will have a meal card with a certain allotment of money for the purchasing of all meals at LA Tech.

Important Note: Housing priority is based on date deposits are received. Register and make your deposits today for best available placement.

Campus Activities:
• basketball courts
• indoor rock wall
• indoor and outdoor swimming pool
• on-campus snack shop
* Staffed options by GENERATE staff & daily tournaments

With GENERATE the final day of camp finishes around 9 AM, giving you a “STAY and PLAY” option in the area in order to visit local attractions. Below are some hand-picked attractions to check out for your group:

• When heading east towards Monroe, LA: Pecanland Mall and the Duck Commander Store

• When heading west towards Shreveport, LA: Air-U Trampoline Park

GENERATE is not a function of Louisiana Tech University, but is simply hosting an event on its campus.

More info about LEAD TEAM

It’s a great time to be serving students. First, there are ample resources, and even many more excellent camps available to serve your needs. Second, this time is important for critical faith formation in your students’ lives. At GENERATE, our team will work hard to serve you and your needs with excellence, while creating an experience that will impact the other 51-weeks of your ministry year. We are strategic and intentional in creating experiences where the name of Jesus is lifted up, where the Gospel is proclaimed through the preaching and studying of the Word, where students are encouraged to take the next step in their faith journey, and where they are challenged to be a person of global impact. These experiences happen in times of personal devotion; in small group times of reading, listening, and responding; in group/community 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 true experience with God can. At GENERATE, we don’t want to simply create moments; we want to partner with you, and the Holy Spirit, to create moments that matter.
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.
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 connection 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.

Price. We know budgets are extremely important. We're positioned to deliver you a top-notch quality camp experience at a price that is sure to save you some big budget money. Plus, to celebrate our launch, we've got some incredible value in our early-bird promotions.
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.
