Why FCA Camps?

FCA Camps take the best attributes of an athletic-focused camp and a spiritual-focused camp and combines them into an athletic/spiritual experience like none other.

FCA Camps remove athletes and coaches from the rut and routine of their sport, friends/co-workers and community and places them into an exciting, healthy, athletic environment that allows them to pursue their passion for sport and clearly see and hear the Christ’s passion for them.

FCA provides athletes and coaches the opportunity to reach their God-given potential by offering comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training in a camp environment. We create an athletic environment that produces spiritual transformation in the lives of coaches and athletes in a camp setting.

Camps are a time of “inspiration and perspiration” for athletes and coaches who want to reach their potential through comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training.

There is no better place to spend part of the summer than at an FCA Camp! We push athletes to discover and break through their limits – mentally, physically, and spiritually. In addition, athletes will receive top-notch instruction, skill development and intense competition that will prepare the camper for future athlete competition.

Each attendee will experience:

  • Unbelievable fun
  • Outstanding sports training
  • Awesome speakers
  • Incredible friendships
  • Life change
