Impact is a youth-oriented construction-based mission camp primarily for students who have finished grades 6-12.
Here’s what our typical schedule looks like each day:
- Rise and Shine and Breakfast – 6:00
- Morning Celebration – 7:00
- Work on Job Site – 8:00-4:00 (lunch around 12:00)
- Free Time/Shower Time – 4:00-6:00
- Dinner – 6:00
- Worship – 7:00
- Devotions – 8:30-9:00
- Free Time/Fun Activities with Staff – 9:00-11:00
- Lights Out – 11:00
Wednesday will be a free day after lunch. Your leader will let you know what you will do that afternoon and for dinner that night.
International camps featured a variation of this schedule, depending on the length of the camp and other scheduling needs.
What teams experience at Impact helps homeowners by ensuring safer, dryer and warmer housing.
In each locality, Impact is hosted by local churches and associations of churches. Community leaders band together to ensure the mission carries forward long after our teams go home.
Impact Mission Camps help foster relationships. We take care of the logistics so you can focus on relationships with students, encourage their relationship with God, and we want to support you in your ministry.
For all camps, students will receive personal devotions to complete before, during, and after camp. Church groups also receive Bible studies to complete before camp with additional devotion for follow-up.
Each night, we’ll provide devotions for your group that tie in to the pastor’s message from worship that night.
We’ll have large group activities a few of the nights (not every night – we want you to have the chance to plan some “together time” with your group).
We want to make sure that students are constantly reflecting on how God is moving while they are at camp and aren’t just driving nails without thinking about why they do it.
Adult leaders are required to attend with each group, and we want to encourage their participation, too! This year, we’re offering FREE registrations for adult leaders from new church groups (1 per 6 youth, up to 5 free registrations). Crew chiefs (who lead the construction projects on individual sites) also attend free of charge.
Our goal is to see this one week experience as a spring board, preparing your students for what God might do through your group when you go back home.
