What’s Next?

NEXT Camp is more than just a teen camp; it’s a platform for students and church leaders to ask and answer the question, “What’s next?” 

For the sophomore scratching his way through life and school, rushing closer to graduation, he asks “What’s next?” Or the student who has grown up in church, devoted to Christ from an early age, and ready for more, he asks “What’s next?” It could be students who stumbled into this camp through a friend’s invitation, and by God’s grace met their Savior during camp. And now their question is “What’s next?”  

Many who have come as pastors, sponsors, or parents have left with a new direction, a “next” of their own.  We believe that there is always a next step in our walk with Christ. No matter the age or life stage, our relationship with Christ should always be growing, and we should be continually transformed by Him.

This camp, which was birthed from one simple question, continues to lay the same inquiry before others year after year, WHAT’S NEXT?


*****NEXT Camp is for 6th-12th grade students, based on the grade completed as of May 2021.*****


Our Vision

Inspire: To fill with an animating, quickening, or exalting influence. Through the teaching of Scripture and the example of humble service, we pray God breathes new life into participants, quickening them to live out greater purposes than thought possible upon arrival.

Apart from equipping people for works of service, all we have is hype. Practical teaching and hands-on experience are Next Camp’s methods for helping church leaders attain Ephesians 4:12 with their group. It is not our intent to create a flurry of excitement that fizzles in the days to follow, but to assist churches in equipping the body of Christ.

Many great camps exist and serve a great calling, but the vision of Next Camp is to go a step further. With a heart for missions and making disciples, Next Camp engages participants in a day of mission work in the surrounding communities. Partnering with local churches, Next camp engages students in various ways to love people and share the gospel. We believe that engaging in serving others is vital to both inspiring and equipping.


We are passionate about seeing the Gospel go around the globe, so we support those who are actively carrying the Good News to other parts of our state, nation, and world. For this reason, NEXT Camp not only includes a day of local mission work, but we support missions in every aspect of our camp. We are committed to inviting speakers who are currently serving in missions in some form or fashion. This commitment accomplishes two goals:
1. Encouraging campers to gravitate toward missional thinking
2. Creating opportunities to bless the missionary and his work
In order to bless the mission works we partner with, NEXT Camp is determined to operate as financially responsible as possible, without sacrificing the quality of the camp experience. This financial commitment frees up resources that are invested back into the missionary who speaks at camp each year, impacting his ability to share the Gospel globally.
Below are the missionaries and church planters we have partnered with in the past.

Cell Groups

The cell group is the backbone of NEXT Camp. It is through these groups that relationships are formed, a Gospel perspective is shaped, teamwork is built, and memories are made. Grade specific groups are built around adult leaders whose main goal of the week is to love students as Christ loves them. The cell group discusses Scripture in a group setting, serves together on the project day, and goes crazy together during organized rec!
