Agape Youth Camp

If you talk to an Agape Youth camper (or volunteer) they will probably tell you it is the best four days of the year. Camp is a jam packed, outrageously fun experience where kids get to break out of their shell and learn about the hope and healing they can receive through Jesus Christ. Our camps have operated for over eight years and are specifically designed for kids who are impacted by incarceration. Cabin Leaders are screened, trained, and prepared to support a child who is experiencing trauma due to the family member’s incarceration, and/or other factors.

We offer two different styles of camp based on the age of the camper, Adventure Camp and Breakaway Camp. We hope you will trust us with your loved one for the duration of camp, below are some testimonials from other parents about their camp experience.

“I would like to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to the outstanding volunteers from Agape Youth Camp. My son had the time of his life and expressed excitement for next year! He has never spent the night anywhere outside of being with family. The experience was life changing for him. It is an incredible service you are providing these youth, as they are often forgotten! By healing, hope, and love you are making a difference and breaking the cycle of incarceration.”

Michelle Apparcel, Agape Youth parent

What is Adventure Camp?

Adventure Camp is the Agape Youth Camp open to kids ages 7-12. Our younger campers will get a once-in-a-lifetime experience at some of the most beautiful camp spots around and learn the importance of hope, healing, and friendship. Adventure Camps are three night, four day camps where kids will get to experience all the traditional elements of camp such as crafts, swimming, and campfire. At night, campers will hear an encouraging message about what the Bible teaches us about hope. Campers will get to spend their four days with a cabin of friends and three cabin leaders who will support and encourage them throughout camp. Adventure Camp has a 1:1 camper to volunteer ratio and campers will see adults caring for them from turning out the lights at night, to serving their meal, to cleaning up their cabin during the day. Adventure Camp is a summer highlight for most campers.

What is Breakaway Camp?

Breakaway Camp is the Agape Youth Camp open to kids ages 13-17. This year, in response to COVID-19, we will be combining our Breakaway Camp session with the Adventure Camps based on the camper’s area. Our older campers will still have their own camp experience but it will be happening simultaneously with the younger campers on the same facility. Our older kids camp is designed specifically for their age group and works to instill helpful life lessons about friendship, kindness, and hope. Today, our kids have to fight hard against cultural and peer pressure to just “make it out alive”, let alone feel ready for a life of success. The Breakaway Camp helps break down barriers that today’s youth create between each other and teaches them Biblical principles to deal with the pressures in their life. Breakaway camps are separated by gender to help kids grow in their own knowledge and leadership without potential distractions that can be caused by co-ed environments.
