LUBBOCK, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) — The following is a press release from Lubbock Christian University:
Lubbock Christian University (LCU) is offering a variety of camp experiences this summer, providing opportunities for preschoolers through high school students. Registrations are now open for all camps.
“Creating opportunities for teens to engage with God and each other is so important,” said Josh Stephens, LCU Dean of Students and Director of LCU Summer Camps. “Our staff wants to facilitate spiritual growth, build community and create lasting memories.”
Encounter, LCU’s on-campus experience for ninth graders through high school graduates, will run June 12-18. Along with nightly entertainment that includes comedians, illusionists, and hypnotists, the camp features interactive Bible lessons, speakers from around the country, and powerful worship led by LCU’s contemporary a cappella group, Best Friends.
Camp Champion is an immersive middle school experience where teens can just be teens and grow in their walk with Jesus. It runs from June 26 to July 1 on the LCU campus and is aimed at students in grades six through eight, with similar entertainment and engagement with daily speakers like Encounter, all focused on the theme of one week, “Castaway”.
Pine Springs, an LCU-run camp in the mountains of New Mexico’s Lincoln National Forest, is open to middle and high school students. Each week is different and full of wonderful experiences and tremendous opportunities for spiritual growth.
Each of the LCU camps is made up of LCU students who serve as camp counselors, all of whom are interviewed by a selection committee made up of LCU faculty, staff, and administrators. Learn more and register on the LCU Camps website.
In addition to these camps, LCU Athletics offers a variety of athletic camps throughout the summer. Ranging from various skills camps to team camps, there is sure to be something for athletes of all ages and skill levels, all led by LCU coaching staff and athletes. Visit the LCU Athletic Camps website to register and for details on all camps offered by the Athletic Department.
LCU Recreational Camps are another option for kids looking for a week of fun. Open to campers ages 4-12, Rec Camp offers a week of games, athletics, scavenger hunts, crafts and more. More information and links to register can be found on the Recreational Summer Camp website.
“No matter what happens this summer, be sure to share one of these camps with the kids or teens in your life,” Stephens urged. “It will be an experience they won’t forget.”
Lubbock Christian University is a Christ-centered college community of learners, transforming the hearts, minds, and hands of students for a life of purpose and service.
