Arizona Youth Camp 2017 is all about fostering moments WITH Christ that encourage a transformed life IN Christ. Students will hear dynamic preaching from world-class speakers, experience powerful times of worship, meet and interact with new friends from around the state, and be the first to try out the new attractions to our youth camp featuring: a massive climbing wall, giant swing, professional ropes course, Olympic-size swimming pool, and much more! You can also expect all the things students have come to know and love about youth camp with additional opportunities for students to learn and grow in their relationship with Jesus. There are six youth camp experiences to choose from in three jam-packed weeks.
This generation faces many cultural and moral challenges in the days ahead, but we can hope with confidence in any situation we find ourselves in because hope has a name, and His name is Jesus. May we never stop believing the best is yet to come for the Church. May we never stop growing and transforming together into the people He's called us to be. May we never stop proclaiming, "In God we trust!" We hope to see you and the thousands of other campers this summer at Arizona Youth Camp 2017!
