  • Fuego is designed for students who have completed 6th-12th grade.

  • No.  All chaperones must be at least one year out of high school & 19 or older.

  • Our discussion groups are generally grade specific. We place students in groups of about 15-20 other kids of their age along with at least 1 Fuego Staff member for general small group Bible study and discussion. When assigning groups, our goal is to make sure there are at least two students from your church assigned together so that they have a friendly face going into the group, but we do avoid mixing grades. For example: if you brought two seniors, we will put them in the same DG. If you only have one senior, that student may not have one of your students in that same DG... but our staff is greatly focused on making that student feel welcome.

  • Well, yes, pretty much... our goal is to allow you & your adult leaders the freedom to make your own schedule.  It would certainly be easier and would save us a bunch of money if we had your adults lead our groups, but the truth is, we want to free up your adults so they can have time to meet with kids when they are ready to meet and not just during "free time."  So all we ask is that adult leaders make sure students are in the cabins when they are supposed to be in & out when they are supposed to be out… and make sure student's meds are available when needed (We will provide a lockbox to store the meds in).  You will not be asked to lead small groups, participate in rec, or ANYTHING else.  As a matter of fact, if you need to rest, rest.  Other than that, we do have a leadership track lead by a major youth ministry guru that you may attend (totally free), and then just build relationships with your students…without having to worry about your next assignment.

  • We do try to help where we can, but unfortunately our resources are limited.

    Under no circumstances can a child under 12 sleep in the same cabin as our students, but:

    At some locations we do have single family cabins. When available, there is an additional private cabin fee, in addition to the cost of camp. 

    In other words, each person in the cabin will need to pay the full camper fee. Even though a younger child will not be allowed to participate in camp, we are required to pay the facilities for every person on campus. 

    To clarify, the total cost would be the Private Cabin Fee plus a Camper Fee for everyone in the cabin.

    To avoid any distraction for our campers, children under 3 are not allowed in the worship auditorium during any of our events.

  • We cannot say for sure, as we base everything on when deposits are received. So, the first deposits received hold the first spots. As a reference, for the past several years, all camps have been full by July of the prior year (so they fill about 10 months in advance).

  • Yes!

  • The camp facilities normally make these assignments, but we put your gender specific students together, along with your adult leader(s).  If you have more students than will fit in a cabin, we will split the students & your leaders to make sure all bases are covered. If you do not have enough students to fill a cabin, you will share a cabin with another group and their leader (in most cases).

    If you require your students to be only in a cabin with your students, this is possible, but you will need to fill/purchase all available space for that cabin.  Please contact us at the time of original registration to guarantee arrangements.

  • Yes!

  • Though we do not try to solve denominational issues at camp… way too deep and usually not real interesting… you will find that our belief system is focused entirely on the Salvation of Jesus.  So if you agree that Salvation is only through the saving grace of Jesus... we are on the same page.

  • The Bible

    We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Mark 13:31; John 8:31-32; John 20:31; Acts 20:32

    The Trinity

    We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption. Genesis 1:1,26; John 1:1,3; Matthew 28:19; John 4:24; Romans 1:19-20; Ephesians 4:5-6



    We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He infallibly foreknows all that shall come to pass, that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. Luke 10:21-22; Matthew 23:9; John 3:16; 6:27; Romans 1:7; I Timothy 1:1-2; 2:5-6; I Peter 1:3; Revelation 1:6


    We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth. Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; John 1:1; 20:28; Romans 9:5; 8:46; II Corinthians 5:21; I Peter 2:21-23; John 20:30-31; Matthew 20:28; Ephesians 1:4; Acts 1:11; Romans 5:6-8; 6:9-10; Hebrews 7:25; Hebrews 9:28; I Timothy 3:16

    The Holy Spirit

    We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. John 14:16,17,26; 15:26-27; John 16:9-14; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; Galatians 5:22-26


    We believe that man was created by God in His own image; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical, spiritual and eternal death, which is separation from God; that as a consequence, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners by choice and therefore under condemnation. We believe that those who repent and forsake sin and trust Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and become new creatures, delivered from condemnation and receive eternal life. Genesis. 1:26; 5:2; Genesis 3; Genesis 2:17; 3:19; Eccles. 2:11; John 3:14; 5:24; John 5:30; 7:13; 8:12; 10:26; Romans 9:22; II Thessalonians 1:9; Rev. 19:3,20; 20:10;14,15; 21:18; Psalm 51:7; Jeremiah 17:9; James 1:14; Romans 3:19; 5:19; Proverbs 28:13; I John 1:9; John 3:16; John 1:13; II Corinthians 5:17; Romans 8:1

    The Last Things

    We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal felicity of the righteous and the endless suffering of the wicked. Matthew 16:27; Mark 14:62; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; Phil. 3:20; I Thessalonians 4:15; II Timothy 4:1; Titus 2:13; I Corinthians 4:5; I Corinthians 15; II, Thessalonians 1:7-10; Revelation 20:4-6,11-15

  • Fuego believes in honoring our commitments to our camp locations and churches registered. Unfortunately, some events occur that can be outside the control of Fuego. Events like hurricanes, fires, tornadoes, oil spills, etc. do occur, and can threaten the ability to host a week of camp. Also, other events like acts of terrorism, widespread violence, pandemics, outbreaks, panic, and national security threats can occur. If the Fuego Event that you are signed up for does have to be canceled due to circumstances outside of Fuego’s control, or due to the current climate at that time, we will offer 100% credit of your payment to a future Fuego Event or a 70% refund to the original payee (usually the church).

    If you decide to cancel your registration for a Fuego Event due to a potential threat of these occurrences, but Fuego has not canceled the event, you will not be issued a refund.

    You can purchase our Optional Refund Assurance Guarantee which assures a full refund, regardless of your reason for cancellation (if selected, this must be purchased for the entire group).

  • Fuego is continually looking for additional ways to provide camper safety and we certainly want to do all we can to limit the spread of any communicable disease.  With that in mind we have implemented the following guidelines:

    • Expanded training focus with staff, including preventative best practices related to health and safety, clear protocols related to guests with symptoms or exposure to communicable diseases.
    • Daily screening for all campers including health checklist & temperature checks
    • Isolation protocols for anyone exhibiting symptoms of a communicable disease
    • Lodging adjustments as needed, including isolation rooms (varies by campus)
    • Main worship gathering seating and capacity adjustments as needed to be in compliance with any government mandates.
    • Daily health screenings for staff, including temp and symptoms, followed by isolation protocols if symptoms are present
    • Expanded “sanitation stations” for guests including hand sanitizers on the person of every Fuego Staffer, every day
    • Hygiene and safety reminders during the experience through signage prompts around campus, on main screens, and from the stage
    • Fuego will follow the local and state guidelines for any existing mask requirements
    • Scheduled daily cleaning in common spaces, on door handles, tables, and other high touch points
  • Our heart is to truly love all and want to point ALL to the forgiveness and hope we can have in the perfect life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

    We sincerely want everyone to come to camp and we believe our campers contribute to our Christian community and the accomplishment of Fuego’s mission through our deeply held beliefs, so it’s important for them to be aware of what we believe to be God’s teaching on sexual identity, which influences our rooming policies.

    As set forth in our Statement of Faith, we believe that in God’s creation sex and gender are synonymous, and that they are determined by an individual’s biological sex at birth. 

    Due to our desire for ALL campers to have an amazing experience while at camp, we are unable (and not equipped) to simultaneously accommodate and care well for campers who will share a cabin together with other campers of differing beliefs and comfort levels. 

    Specifically, this means campers who:

    • desire to be called by pronouns different from their sex/gender
    • proclaim their identity as a non-human species
    • are transitioning to a different gender from the one given at birth
    • proclaim their identity to be LGBTQ+ (We realize that identity and attraction can be complicated, and may not necessarily preclude your camper from attending camp, so we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions regarding your camper.)

    Because we also desire for ALL to hear God’s truth, we can refer those campers to other Christian camps we believe to be equipped for these diverse camper situations.

    We are grateful for our many camper families and for the trust they give us in caring for their children.
