The school sporting year is coming to an end and summer is just around the corner. This means that FCA is gearing up for summer camps. FCA camps are a time of “inspiration and perspiration.” There are several types of camps that FCA puts on: individual sport camps, team camps, leadership camps, and coaches camps. At our team and individual camps, athletes get instruction on becoming better at their sport and inspiration to become a competitor for Christ. FCA leadership camp challenges and equips athletes to become the Christ-like leader on their campus that God wants them to be. Our coaches camps provide an opportunity for coaches and their families to be refreshed and renewed in their spiritual lives.
This summer East GA FCA will be partnering with Brewton Parker College on a wrestling camp, a boys and girls basketball camp, and a softball camp. We will also be a major part of an FCA high school team football camp at Georgia Southern University and an FCA coaches camp at Black Mountain, North Carolina.
Camps have the potential to be a high water mark in the life of an athlete or coach. The spiritual impact of a camp has the potential to not only change a coach or athlete, but all whom they influence. Believing this, East GA FCA is committed to help get as many coaches and athletes to camp as we can. So we are currently raising funds to help offset the cost (or scholarship) for 20 athletes and 10 coaches and their families to be able to attend camp. If you would like more information on a particular FCA camp, check out www .fca.org/Camp
The cost for coaches camp is approximately $1200.00 depending on the size of the family. Leadership camp is $365.00 and team Camp is around $140.00 per athlete. If you are interested in helping send and athlete or coach to camp, please contact our office.
