LCU Establishes Scholarship Program for Summer Camp Attendees

Starting in the summer of 2021, any camper who registers and attends one of LCU’s summer camps will receive a scholarship to Lubbock Christian University for the amount spent as a part of LCU’s “Camp to Campus” scholarship program. 

“This summer, Lubbock Christian University is unveiling a new opportunity for the LCU Summer Camp family,” explained Josh Stephens, Director of LCU Summer Camps. “We design our camps to be vehicles that the Lord uses to connect teens to Jesus and to like-minded individuals—summer camp is where lifelong memories are made, and lives are changed. So being able to offer this opportunity for campers who will become LCU students is a way for parents to invest in their son or daughter by sending them to camp that will also benefit their future college career.”

Starting in summer 2021, any student who registers and attends Encounter, Camp Champion, and/or Pine Springs will receive a scholarship to Lubbock Christian University for the amount spent. The scholarships are eligible to be combined with other LCU scholarships and be split over a four-year period while enrolled as a student at LCU. For example, the cost is $305 for one week at Encounter, Camp Champion, or Pine Springs. 

“If your teen attends a session of Pine Springs and Encounter this summer, $610 will have been paid for those camps, which means your teen will have a $610 scholarship in their name for enrollment at LCU after they graduate high school,” explained Stephens. “If they attend both Encounter and Pine Springs camps this summer and for the next three years, they will have a scholarship for $2440 to attend LCU after graduating high school that will be split over 4 years at LCU.”

“We feel blessed to be able to host these opportunities and invest in the spiritual edification and education of teens,” he added. “We are excited to begin this new program and hope it provides opportunities for our campers to become LCU students and summer camp counselors.”

LCU offers three different camp opportunities throughout the summer. Encounter, for high school students entering ninth grade through graduating seniors, is hosted on LCU’s campus from June 13-19 this year. Camp Champion, for sixth, seventh, and eighth graders, will be from June 27-July 1 in Lubbock. Pine Springs, LCU’s summer camp located near Sacramento, New Mexico, hosts several different sessions throughout the summer.
