Discipleship Camp

“…like a tree planted by the water” Ps 1:3

Ages 15-18

Spring Break, March 2024

Are you looking to grow in your spiritual journey, be intentional about discipleship and following Jesus?

Then PLANTED is an opportunity for you to get started, sending your spiritual roots down to the water.

Our summer leadership and discipleship programs, are teaching young people skills to lead others, serve others, share about Jesus, and gain confidence in their faith.

We are offering PLANTED to kick start the growth we see through our summer programs before summer even begins. This is a spring break discipleship camp for teens 15-18 who are looking to go deeper in their Christian faith. We want to see young people who are rooted in their faith in Jesus and growing towards a life of discipleship and service.

At camp, young leaders have the opportunity to

  • Build trusting relationships with like-minded peers
  • Try new things, outside their comfort zones, in a safe place
  • Reflect on life and faith away from home distractions
  • Experience the inspiration of creation

PLANTED is not just a retreat weekend, or spring break holiday. It will include opportunities for teambuilding, practicing spiritual disciplines, completing a work project, and gaining skills in camp activities. Just like trees benefit from being tended, our spiritual growth benefits from some work too. Students need to be ready to roll their sleeves up and commit to learning and participating. We hope it will be challenging, but also rewarding and lots of fun together.

Space is limited. We are starting small, limiting spaces to just 12 students. We value the growth that comes when we can share life together in tight groups, just like our cabin groups in the summer. Students must get a recommendation to attend (see below), and spaces will be filled on a first come first served basis.

Discount on Summer. The cost of PLANTED is $400. If accepted, $300 of this amount can be applied to either Servant Leadership Training (SLT) or Ministry Under Discipleship (MUD) in the summer. SLT is a 4-week counselor-in-training program. MUD is our two-week work crew and discipleship program.

Get Recommended. Students attending PLANTED must be recommended by their pastor or another Christian leader they know. This leader must complete a recommendation form, letting Camp Squeah know that they believe the student is ready for this program. These Christian Leaders will also be asked for their willingness to support the student through prayer and guidance going forward.

Registering. Students wishing to attend PLANTED should contact our Summer Program Director by email: summer@squeah.com and ensure they have someone provide a recommendation to attend. Once a recommendation has been received by Camp Squeah, students will receive a Group Hold ID, which will allow them to register for PLANTED through our online  camper registration.
