If you have ever worked with young people, you know the power of getting them away from the stress of school and busyness. It’s always amazing to watch how a young person can change within a week, if they unplug, and let their hearts connect with God.
One way to find the right Christian youth camp is to ask friends and families for their recommendations and their own experiences. People who have great memories of summer camp love to tell their stories and even send their own children to the same camp they loved as a kid. Ask them why they loved it and find out why their kids loved it, too. Though Christian youth camp websites and brochures are really helpful, getting first hand recommendations from the people you trust says a lot.
Another good way to choose the right youth camp is to check with your own church or churches in your community to find out what youth retreats they hold during the year. Many churches put on really fun and enriching retreats for children and teens, and since they are local, they usually use a youth camp that’s not too far away or provide the transportation needed to get the campers there. Even the bus ride to camp can be quite an adventure!
Finally, knowing that a Christian youth camp is accredited with a reputable association tells you they are committed to excellence by upholding standards above state licensing. Search online for Christian camping associations to find Christian youth camps in your area and to find out if the camp you are considering is affiliated.

I liked that you mentioned that some of the best memories come from Christian summer camp. I have been planning a family trip and have been looking at a couple of Christian retreat facilities. I'm hoping that this can help us make some good bonding memories as well.

I like that you talked about how it is nice to see the youth change in just a week and be connected with God. I want to find a Christian youth conference like that for my kids to attend when they grow older. It would be helpful for them to be reminded of our faith if ever they start to lose their way due to various influences.
