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 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-12th 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.
GENERATE at the Beach is one of the best ways your group can unite and bond together while making memories that last a lifetime! You and your group can choose to stay in a hotel or condo (prices vary), or you can find your own housing and be a part of the Program Only option. GENERATE worship services (at 10 AM and 7 PM each day) will be held at a convention center in the area, and there will also be catered meals at or near the convention center for all who choose to have a meal ticket included. Once the Kickstart Morning Worship Service ends, your group will have the rest of the afternoon and early evening to have fun in the sun!
