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 hosting an FCA Team Softball camp at Georgia Southern University. We will also be a major part of an high school FCA Team Football camp at Georgia Southern and an FCA coaches camp on St. Simons Island. 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 athletes and 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
Last year we sent 31 coaches and 232 athletes to camp. Not only did camp have a great spiritual impact on the coaches and athletes but that experience carried over to their campuses. Each campus had athletes and coaches ready in the fall to step up and step out for Christ and they did. Our goal this year is to get 49 coaches and 400 athletes to camp.
The cost for coaches camp is approximately $1200.00 depending on the size of the family. FCA Leadership camp is $365.00 and team Camp is around $150.00 per athlete. If you are interested in helping send and athlete or coach to camp, please contact our office at 912-537-4002.
