BigStuf (Click HERE for camp preview vid) is a summer camp for teenagers ON THE BEACH! Each summer, students gather in Panama City Beach, FL, for a unique camp experience that includes engaging God's Word, meeting other teens, music, worship, daily activities and plenty of beach fun. There are morning and evening sessions, and after each evening session is Church Group Time where leaders are able to debrief with their students what the sessions were about. It is simply a time for discussion to take place and for students to ask questions and open up about what God is doing in them.
There are organized rec tournaments (basketball and beach volleyball) during the day, and other organized events throughout the week such as beach worship one day before our evening session.
Life is full of stories. Stories that inspire. Stories that make us laugh. Stories that make us cry. Stories that change us forever. Stories are powerful. They change us. Shape us. Inspire us. Since the day they were first told, stories have been changing the world, and that’s why BigStuf 2014 is all about stories. In fact we’re calling it Story.
What many of us may not realize is the fact that we are in the middle of the biggest story that’s ever being told – the story of God as it’s told in the Bible. A lot of times we see the Bible as a collection of different stories. Adam and Eve. Noah. Joseph. David and Goliath. But, God didn’t see it that way. Each story was a small part of His big story. A story about redemption. A story about a better way of living and new world that is to come. A story of love, adventure, life and death, heroes and villains. And the craziest part: he has a place for you! He created you to be in His story. And that leads us to one monumental conclusion: you were meant for amazing things. That’s the story. It’s our story. It’s His story.
We have selected July 7-11 as our camp week for 2014. The price is $349. The price includes 4 nights of lodging, 10 meals, 7 sessions, and session materials. We are also asking for a $75 transportation fee + any spending money for souvenirs, etc.
