This is a great place to get details about our camps.
We try to free up your adults so they can have time to meet with kids, so they are required to do very little. We ask that they make sure students are in the cabins when they are supposed to be out…and in when they are supposed to be in, make sure meds are available when needed (We will provide a lock box). They will not be asked to lead small groups, participate in rec or ANYTHING else. If they (or you) need to rest, we try to give you every opportunity to do so. This will allow them the time to just sit and build relationships with your students…without having to worry about the next assignment.
No. All Chaperons must be at least one year out of High School and 19 or older.
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.
Our discussion groups are generally grade specific. We place students in groups of about 15-20 other kids of their age along with 2 Fuego Staff members 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 other people from other churches and states. For instance, if you brought 2 seniors, 3 juniors, 3 sophomores, 3 freshman, 2 8th graders, 1 7th grader and 3 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 seventh grader would be with your 8th graders…thereby keeping her with someone she knows. A group may have some 6th & 7th or 7th & 8th, but we do not assign middle school with high school and DG’s never have more than two grades represented.
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.
Absolutely....and there is absolutely no chance they will look anything like the picture to the right...but they really are good.
I 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 adavance).
The maximum age is "just completed 12th grade." The minimum age is "just completed 6th grade."
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
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; 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
