WHAT TO EXPECT

Worship

Our times of worship at camp consist of morning and evening sessions where students have extended times of singing, dynamic teaching, and opportunities to respond to what God is doing in their lives. We are blessed to be led in worship by our own Summit Worship Team and taught by Camp Pastors Jeremy Berger (MS) and JD Greear (HS) as well as other student staff and pastors from our church.

Theme

Each year we take the opportunity to focus on specific aspects of God, the Christian life, or issues related to adolescence. This year's theme is "Peace in Chaos," with the goal of helping students see that in the middle of the chaos in which they are constantly surrounded in their world, their community, and even in their minds, they can find peace in Christ.

Community

One of the best parts of camp is the relationships. Your student will spend more time with their small group at camp than they will in a year’s worth of small groups the rest of the year. We know the time spent sharing meals, walking together, and having fun is where the “magic of camp” happens.

Activities

Ocoee Ridge offers tons of activities including high ropes, waterslides, a wave pool, and paintball. In addition to those activities, we also host tournaments, contests, trivia, and group games throughout the week to engage all types of students at camp.

FAQs

Summit Students staff as well as Summit Students volunteers all serve at camp in various roles. We are also blessed to have a number of other staff as well as parents who want to serve for a week each.
We use charter buses to travel to and from camp with one quick stop about halfway for students to stretch and enjoy some Chick-fil-A.
A safe environment is a prerequisite for everything else we want to see God do at camp. Because of the number of students at camp, the length of camp, and the distance from RDU, we know that concerns around safety can take a few different shapes. A variety of Summit pastors, staff, and elders will be present to assist at camp. Both for managing medications as well as responding to needs during the week, we have multiple medical professionals and healthcare providers who give a week to volunteer at camp. If you have other safety-specific questions, email students@summitchurch.com and we’d be happy to answer them.
For the safety of our students and leaders, we ensure that every room does not exceed the number of individual beds available and has at least two background-checked adults. Some rooms will have more than two adults but none will have less. Students spend almost all of their time in their small groups, which are divided up by age, gender, and campus and led by qualified leaders. This helps us ensure that your student is known and loved throughout the week.
We understand your desire to stay connected with your student while they are at summer camp. If you need to contact your student, you can contact Ocoee Ridge Camp at (423)-338-2747.
