We live and breathe camp, and design experiences that we would send our own kids to year after year. Our team has put on over a thousand weeks of camp across the country to serve well over 355,000 campers and more than 2,000 churches and communities. As the hosts of Centri-kid, Student Life for Kids, Crossings Ministries, and many other camps, we have a passion for connecting churches with their local community to make the name of Jesus known.

Our Commitments

Imagine if churches had the resources to reach hundreds of new families for Christ. We know it’s possible. Here’s how we make that happen:

Teach Christ-Centered Truth

We commit to teaching Christ-centered truths every day to every camper. The foundations we teach will be engaging and memorable so kids can hide these truths in their hearts and grow in their faith.

Ensure a Safe Environment

We establish an environment that is both physically and emotionally safe. From a secure check-in and check-out process, to thoroughly vetting and training counselors — we take great care at every turn.

Encourage a Sense of Belonging

Every child deserves to have a place where they feel like they belong. By supplying a variety of activities and carefully training staff to engage with each camper, we allow kids to be uniquely themselves while connecting with others through team-based activities.

Foster Relationships

Relationships formed at camp shouldn’t end when camp is over. We create an environment that fosters new friendships between campers as well as between campers and local church volunteers. We want to help churches connect with families all year long.

Make Camp Fun

We make camp fun and physically active through high-quality, engaging activities. Kids learn and build relationships through play, so we use play to connect kids to Jesus through people who love Jesus.
