Registration for Lubbock Christian University’s (LCU) three summer camp experiences—Pine Springs, Encounter, and Camp Champion—for the summer of 2022 is now open.
LCU offers three different camp opportunities throughout the summer, engaging students from elementary age all the way up through high school.
“Creating opportunities for teens to engage God and one another is so important,” shared Josh Stephens, LCU Dean of Students and Director for LCU Summer Camps. “Our staff desires to facilitate spiritual growth, build community, and create long lasting memories.”
Encounter, LCU’s on-campus experience for ninth graders through high school graduates, will run from June 12-18. Aside from nightly entertainment that regularly includes comedians, illusionists, and even hypnotists, the camp includes speakers from across the country and powerful worship led by LCU’s very own contemporary a cappella group, Best Friends.
“Encounter is a high school camp on LCU’s campus where students have the opportunity to be a part of interactive classes, hear engaging keynote speakers, and be shaped in powerful ways,” shared Stephens.
“Camp Champion is an immersive middle school experience where teens can just be teens and grow in their walk with Jesus,” he continued. Camp Champion, which will run from June 26-July 1, is for sixth to eighth grade students, and features similar entertainment, engagement with daily speakers, and a weeklong theme, “Castaway.” Geared to middle schoolers, this camp is a hands-on and experiential learning event.
Pine Springs, LCU’s third camp opportunity, is located roughly five hours west of its campus in the mountains of the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico that is open to high school, middle school, and younger ages. Each week is different and full of wonderful experiences and tremendous spiritual growth opportunities.
Each of LCU’s camps is staffed by LCU students, who fill the role of camp counselors who apply for the positions and who each interviewed by a selection committee of LCU faculty, staff, and administrators.
The Camp to Campus scholarship opportunity, which began in 2021, ensures that 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.
“No matter what is going on this summer, make sure you share one of these camps with the teens in your life,” urged Stephens. “It will be an experience they will not forget.”
