Lubbock Christian University on-campus summer camps came to a close at the end of Camp Champion, an immersive camp focusing on equipping middle-school students with spiritual tools for that phase of their lives.
For the week of June 24 – 29, 187 middle-school campers experienced interactive classes, worship sessions, creative activities, and entertainment, all through the lens of an immersive theme.
Camp Champion’s over-arching theme for 2018 was “Castoff,” which informed much of the décor, designs, and activities for the week. In keeping with an island feel, the Caf was branded the Oceanside Café, the SUB became the S.S. SUB Perrin, Katie Rogers Hall was called the Big Kahuna Lodge, and the McDonald Moody Auditorium became the Sacred Grounds. Group leaders wore grass skirts and leis over their day-to-day outfits. Counselors rotated through a series of brightly colored and tropically-themed shirts.
Campers were divided into groups with participated in the various aspects of camps together. The groups rotated through several classes a day, each with a unique approach to spiritual lessons. The groups also engaged in team-building activities and games interspersed with the lessons.
