Frequently Asked Questions

This is a great place to get details about our camps.

  • What is the age range for campers?

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

  • WHAT?  My LEADERS HAVE A WEEK OFF?

    Well, sort of....our goal is to allow you and 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 and out when they are supposed to be out…and make sure student's meds are available when needed (We will provide a lock box to store the meds).  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.

  • Can High School Students Attend as Chaperones?

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

  • Is Camp Fuego Denominationally affiliated?

    Though we do not try to solve denominational issues at camp…way too deep and usually not real interesting…we are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.

  • How do discussion groups work?

    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…that way, they have a friendly face going into the group. This also serves as a great opportunity for your students to meet people from other churches and states. For instance, if you brought two seniors, three juniors, three sophomores, three freshman, two 8th graders, one 7th grader and three 6th graders...though it may not be exact....generally, your seniors would be together in a senior group, with 10-12 other seniors...your three juniors would be together...and so on...your 7th grader would be with your 8th graders…thereby keeping the 7th grader with someone they know. A group may have some 6th & 7th or 7th & 8th, but we do not assign middle school with high school and DGs never have more than two grades represented.

  • How are sleeping arrangements determined?

    The camp facilities normally make these assignments, but we put your gender specific students together, along with your adult leader.  If you have more students than will fit in a cabin, we will split them and 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.

  • Are meals and lodging included in the camp price?

    Absolutely....and there is absolutely no chance they will look anything like the picture to the left...but they really are good.

  • How early should we register?

    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 August of the prior year (so they fill about 9 months in advance).

  • NATIONAL DISASTERS, PANDEMICS, TRAVEL BANS AND SUDDEN CANCELLATIONS OF EVENTS

    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).

  • What Does Fuego Beleive?

    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

     

    God

    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


    Jesus

    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


    Salvation

    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; Eccl. 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

     


  • Health Protocols

    • Daily screening for all campers including health checklist & temperature checks
    • Isolation protocols for anyone exhibiting symptoms
    • Lodging adjustments as needed, including isolation rooms (varies by campus)
    • Main worship gathering seating and capacity adjustments as needed including the observation of a 50% of maximum occupancy while at Acadian Baptist Center
    • Daily health screenings for staff, including temp and symptoms, checks twice a day, and 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
    • 2 Face mask buffs will be provide to every attendee upon arrival.  Fuego will follow the local and state guidelines for mask requirements
