Thinking Matters Camp South: Game On

Do you know any teens or young adults who want to grow their faith in Christ, deepen their knowledge of the Bible, and learn how to apply a biblical worldview to the difficult questions facing our culture? Then this camp is for them!

Aimed at late teens and young adults ages 15-20, we will take on some of the most challenging worldview and apologetics topics our day.

We have several speakers, including Brendan Malone of Lifenet, Ric Sun of Life International, and Mark James of Creation Ministries, who will equip and encourage students as they learn how to think biblically in all aspects of life. They will challenge students to stand for Christ in the classroom, in the workplace, and with their friends.

In addition, students will build relationships, engage in conversation, play fun games, eat great food, visit the beach, sing around a campfire, and enjoy God’s beautiful creation.

Space is limited to 40 campers, so sign up early and spread the word to your friends!

Informed Apologetics Camp

Mission – To equip the next generation with a comprehensive biblical worldview, so that it resonates with them, and makes them active champions of it.

Do you want to grow in your faith and deepen your knowledge of the Bible and how it applies in our culture and world?

Then this is the camp for you! Aimed at late teens and young adults ages 15-20 (school year 10 and up), we will tackle some challenging biblical worldview and apologetics topics—worldviews in conflict, sexuality and gender identity, and the origin of life and Darwinian evolution.

We have several speakers, including Todd Funk of Thinking Matters NZ. They will equip and encourage you to form a biblical worldview on these controversial worldview topics and challenge you to stand for Christ in your school, in your classes, and among your friends.

In addition, we will build relationships, engage in conversation, play some games, eat yummy food, sing around a campfire, and enjoy God’s creation.

Space is limited to 30 campers, so make sure to sign up early and spread the word to your friends!
