The Fuse Summer Camp 2018
What is The Fuse Summer Camp?
Never been to camp with us? Take a look at The Fuse Camp 2017 recap video from camp last year!
The Fuse Summer Camp is a fun, energetic, unforgettable, life-changing experience designed specifically for high school students. Students will experience exciting worship. They will get to hear challenging talks and incredible worship, they will also experience awesome large group games and competitions, along with the many recreational activities that Windermere has to offer. These include swimming, high ropes course, paintball, cave & trails, and much more. The Fuse is four days students will not want to miss!
The Fuse is all about small group conversations where students can not only hear the message but interact, ask questions, debate, personalize and apply it. We want to elevate the role of the adult small group leader. Building the relationship between the small group leader and the student is essential to us so that the relationship can continue once camp is over.
What does it mean to be small group based?
Being small groups based doesn’t simply mean we have small groups or that we provide questions. It means that everything happening at camp, from what’s said on stage, to the activities, to the accommodations to the meals—all of it— is designed intentionally with small groups in mind. Camp is often the place where decisions are made and lives are changed. It’s a turning point. And we want students to have that experience alongside a caring adult who will still walk with them, still know their name, still ask them questions and still cheer for them long after camp is over.
Why should my student come to The Fuse camp?
It’s part of a gospel-centered and developmentally appropriate year-long strategy aimed at helping your student understand their part in God’s story. And it's a lot of fun!
Who can attend The Fuse?
All students who will be entering the 9th-12th grades in Fall 2018 are able to attend The Fuse.
