Worldview Academy Leadership Camps
SPECIAL NOTE: All 2020 camps are closed. More details are available here.
At Worldview Academy Leadership Camps, junior high and high school students, ages 13 and up, are challenged to think hard about their faith. They are treated like real people who wrestle with real issues—and who need answers that match the real world. Each camp features 20+ hours of lively classroom sessions and discussions, which guide students to better understand servant leadership, apologetics/evangelism, and comparative worldviews.
The Worldview Academy experience is unlike any other. Students are taught by inspired teachers, challenged by creative activities, moved by meaningful worship, and welcomed into a community of life-long friends. Students join groups of the same age and gender for the discussion of the big ideas. They are led by college-aged small group leaders from across North America who have dynamic personal relationships with Jesus Christ and the life skills and spiritual maturity to lead students in discussions throughout the week. The six days are filled with laughter, tough questions, biblical answers, and a deepening hunger for Christ.
Details & Frequently Asked Questions about Camp
What do you teach at camp?
At camp students are trained in Leadership, Apologetics, and Worldviews. They are immersed in the core essentials of Christian teaching and how it compares to other belief systems. Please see our statement of faith for doctrinal questions and download our Key Concepts for the heart of the curriculum we teach at camp.
Check-In & Departure for Camp
Check-in opens at 2:45 and runs until 4:15 pm on Sunday. Departure is at 12 noon (before lunch) on Friday. Parents, please join us on Friday at 9:15 am for the last session with the students followed by a brief parent meeting to discuss the major highlights and moments of camp.
Due to airline regulations and safety concerns, Worldview Academy does not offer a camp shuttle service to and from local airports, bus depots, or train stations. In addition, we cannot give out anyone’s contact information to assist with carpool, but recommend trying to connect with other camp families in your area via Facebook, your church, or homeschool groups.
Use of Phones/Electronics
Student cell phones are not allowed at camp – no exceptions. Cell phones brought by students will be collected at check-in and returned at the closing of camp. However, students may use the camp phone to call home. Parents must authorize calls to anyone other than immediate family. All electronics (recording equipment, mp3 players, cell phones, laptops, tablets, e-readers, etc.) are prohibited at camp with the exception of some cameras and will be collected by staff and returned to students on the last day of camp.
We take very seriously the safety and welfare of your student while they are at camp. Consequently, we will conduct a security search the first evening of camp. If prohibited items from our packing list are found, they will be collected and returned to the student at the end of camp. There will also be a safety briefing during camp orientation outlining emergency procedures.
