Camp


THEME

Summer Camp Theme

We all want to belong. Whether it be in a family, a relationship, or a community, belonging to these groups gives us an identity and a sense of purpose. However, because of sin, many people are missing out on the most purpose-driven relationship of all. Those without a relationship with God lack an understanding of what it means to truly belong, to feel loved, and to have a proper perspective of the world around them. But through the life of His Son, Jesus, and through faith in Him, we receive access to a relationship with God, as well as the abundant life that comes along with it. God has given us a way to be in community with Him. At Beach Camp 2019, students will learn that by faith and through the completed work of Jesus on the cross, God grants them access to His family.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS BEACH CAMP LIKE? 

Beach Camp 2019 will look different than Beach Camps in the past. We are teaming up with Student Life. They will provide the programming and worship experience while Southcliff provides food, lodging, and all the fun. Beach Camp is a Christ-centered conference-style camp for 7th-12th graders. It includes engaging worship from experienced worship leaders, learning through sound Biblical teaching, recreation with our church and free time with your family group to expore and have fun at the beach! It's a week of focused learning, heartfelt praise, dramas, community building, and most importantly, God's Word on center stage.

WHAT IS THE GOAL OF BEACH CAMP? 

We have numerous goals for Beach Camp, but ultimately, our goals involve life change happening in students, adults and us. In Scripture, every time someone spent time with Jesus, he or she went away changed. We hope each person leaves this experience changed. Not because of technical effects, entertaining dramas or even meeting new people, but because we have been with Jesus.

HOW WILL WE BE TRAVELING TO AND FROM GALVESTON? 

We will traveling to Galveston in charter busses and Southcliff busses. The Southcliff busses will be at camp all week to transport students to and from different activities at camp. 

WHAT IS A FAMILY GROUP?

A Family Group is about 10-15 students from Southcliff coming together under the leadership of an adult leaders from our church. Our volunteers lead these groups so they can continue to disciple and invest in the students' spiritual growth back home. A Family Group's purpose is to learn about Jesus through Bible study, prayer and group-bonding activities.

WHAT CAN WE DO DURING FREE TIME? 

The majority of free time will be hanging out at the beach (swimming, volleyball, 9 square) or swimming at the hotel. Southcliff will have some orgainzed free time options such as The Pier, miniature golf, arcades, go-karts, and shopping. Every student will be within a family group and with leaders during free time. Students will not be allowed to go off on their own.

We will be staying at The Victorian Condos. This hotel is where we have stayed in the past for Beach Camp in Galveston. It is located on the sea wall right across the street from the recreation beaches. Each room sleeps 6 - 8 people. Students will be divided by grade and gender into their hotel room with 1 to 2 leaders in each room. 

WHAT GRADES CAN ATTEND?

Beach Camp is for students 7th - 12th grade. Each student will be placed in a room, family group, and with a leader according to what grade they are in. We will have many leaders for each family group and room. If you are an upcoming 7th grader or a senior headed to college, we believe you will grow spiritually from Beach Camp 2019. 

CAN WE INVITE OUR FRIENDS? 

YES! YES! YES! We want you to invite your friends to Beach Camp. Whether you are a Christian who has followed Jesus for a long time or you don't even know who Jesus is, we believe that camp will be a lot of fun for you. We also believe God can do anything and show Himself to anyone at camp.
