2017 Summer Camp Coach Information

Camp verse: “Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.” Phil 1:27

Camp theme: The Power of One. 
One passion, one purpose and one goal can drive an athlete, coach, or team to be their very best. The Impact of One. One player, one play, and one game-changing moment can transform the course of competition and bring victory. Everything comes down to One. There is power in One Gospel. There is power in One Truth. And there is power in our One Great God who transforms hearts and brings victory in our lives. As Christian athletes, when we stand together with one passion, one power, and one purpose, there is great impact! Let’s stand together as One!
