What sort of things will we do at camp? keyboard_arrow_down

During camp we will have camp-wide sessions, Big Camp Time, and small groups every morning and night. There will also be an evening prayer and worship session, Late Night with Ignite, Camp Olympics and the Ministry Fair. Bring clothes you can get dirty and wet for Camp Olympics because it will be hot (this is Texas after all). We may also have some free time in the afternoon where you can play disc golf or go to the Highland Lakes pool.

Ignite hosts a Ministry and Church Fair during retreat to give campers the opportunity to interact with local churches and Christian organizations. The goal is to help them get plugged into the body of Christ in Austin!
