High School Weeks

Sr. High

9th-12th grade students experience a week of camp where they'll be challenged to see how they can change their schools and their futures to serve God and impact the kingdom! 


Deeper Life

10th-13th graders get the opportunity to take their faith to the next level. We tell our Deeper Life deans to plan this week to take kids out of the "faith comfort zone" and challenge them to their foundation and help them rebuild it to be fully devoted followers of Christ! 


Mission Camp

Students age 16 can apply to serve at Mission Camp.  We will be partnering with Broken Chains Outreach to serve in Porcora, Costa Rica.  (Scroll to bottom to learn more)


Sr. High Wilderness

For 9th-12th graders, SHW will travel to East Tennessee to backpack the Appalachian Trail in Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  This will be a very physically demanding trip.  


Genesis Week

7th-12th graders get the only camp of it's kind in the USA! The chance to spend a week with Creation Truth Foundation from Oklahoma as they bring their exhibits and teach how God created the earth, did dinosaurs and people live at the same time, was their a big bang and more! It's an incredible week for those wanting to learn how the Bible and science work together! 


Music Camp Plus

7th-12th graders who love band, choir, art, drama and other creative elements will have the opportunity to showcase their talent as they train all week for a presentation on Friday night! Parents, friends and family are invited to see the ways God has gifted campers on that special night! 


Niners

Students entering 9th grade face a unique challenge as they enter high school and the many life changes that brings.  We want to help them prepare to make high school 4 great years for themself and their impact in the Kingdom.  Since it's for only 9th grade, they'll develop relationships that will grow for the next four years and into lifetime bonds! 



Mission Camp 2020

Oil Belt is going GLOBAL!


Since its inception, Oil Belt has been challenging students to go into Christian service; hence its name, Oil Belt Christian Service Camp. In an effort to use an opportunity that has grown with Oil Belt, we will be offering a “High School Mission’s Camp” in the summer of 2020.


Why Missions Camp? Just like camp, missions’ trips grow faith, expand worldviews and develop servant leaders. Oil Belt is comprised of a network of churches. While some may be able to offer trips to their youth, others do not have the volunteers, students or resources needed to host trips. It is in those situations we see a way we can serve students and churches.


Who will students work with? For our first trip, we will be working with a well-established group from our area. Broken Chains Outreach is a 7-year-old mission group led by Shannon Bopp and Josh Conley. Both have served as deans at Oil Belt, and Josh is a current board member. Together, they’ve taken over a dozen trips to Costa Rica.


Broken Chains has a vision to rescue the children of Costa Rica that have fallen victim to the horrible trade of Human Trafficking. Human Trafficking in Costa Rica is at epidemic levels. Children are enslaved for labor in agriculture and sex trafficking as early as 8 years of age. They are seeking to launch a refuge to house up to 40 children between the ages of 8 and 17 years of age.


How to get more information? We will host an informational meeting on January 13th at 6:00pm for church leaders, parents and high school students interested in learning more. At that meeting we will present the trip dates, itinerary and more. If you’re not able to attend, contact the camp office to have us send you the information.


Expectations? With the desire for this trip to be a launchpad into ministry for campers, we are structuring the process different than summer camp registration.
First, we will have a deadline to apply. From the applications, Shannon and Josh will select up to 12 students to create the team. Those who apply for this trip must be 16 years old by the date of the trip (summer 2020).

Second, those selected will also be required to attend pre-trip training meetings. The dates for these meetings will be announced at the January meeting as well.
Last, passports will be needed to attend the trip so be prepared to apply for a passport.


We’re excited about the opportunity for teens to experience global missions this summer! If you have questions or would like more information, contact the camp office.
