On June 19-22, 2009, Wayfarer is partnering with Anderson University to hold camp for the first time. We are so excited to be designing our own week of camp for youth. Wayfarer’s team of speakers — Chris Brooks, Chad Norris, and Dave Rhodes — will all be at the camp, and David Walker will be leading worship.
So why come to Wayfarer Camp? Here are some reasons…..
- A message-centric week of camp: Rarely will a camp offer a teaching perspective that is message-centric in its delivery. With three speakers teaching at Wayfarer Camp, the message can be delivered in a well-rounded way instead of only in large-group stage times.
- 3 speakers vs. 1: Also, with our three diverse speakers, the delivery style of the message is changed up each day, ensuring that a wide-range of students can hear the message at some point in the camp week in a manner that best suits them. This will help to avoid a student feeling a disconnect each night because he or she doesn’t resonate with a speaker’s style. In addtion, all three of these speakers who will take the platform at Wayfarer Camp also do so for many other recognized organizations, and so it will be a blessing to hear from all three speakers in one week.
- One-on-one time with a speaker: Typically, one speaker is shared by many churches, which makes it difficult to personalize a church’s experience at camp. The reality is that one speaker can’t get to everyone. At Wayfarer Camp, we have three very qualified teachers who are accessible to our churches, thus providing more opportunity for churches to have one-on-one time with a teacher.
- Teaching teachers: One of Wayfarer’s passions is to teach teachers through the curriculum and resources we write and produce. We will bring this same attribute to the camp environment. In addition, we have on staff more qualified writers and teachers who will be in a position to facilitate discussions with your adult chaperones/family group leaders as they prepare to minister to their students.
