Student Life Camp

WHAT: Camp this year will be centered around the theme Take Heart from John 16:33. Jesus said these words to the disciples during the Passover meal, just before he would be betrayed, arrested, and crucified. He wanted the disciples, and us today, to know that those who follow Christ will have trouble in this world but we can be encouraged because Jesus has overcome the world. The main sessions, worship, and Bible studies at camp will center on this theme and students will have much time to ponder it. 

WHO: Current 6-12th Graders (2020-2021 school year)

WHEN: July 12-16, 2021

WHERE: Hannibal-Lagrange University, Hannibal, MO

COST: $329 | $299 with discount code EARLYBIRD.
Early-bird registration ends April 4.
Final registration ends June 2.


Update: Student Life Camp has found it difficult to partner with mission sites willing to accept large numbers of student volunteers in the midst of COVID restrictions. Instead of serving at mission sites in the afternoons, students will get to participate in activities to connect with one another and their leaders through small group Bible study and activities built around strengthening relationships at rec camp.

First Free has filled all of our reserved spots at camp, but you can still sign up to be on the waiting list and we will continue adding students as long as Student Life Camp has availability.

Are refunds available? 
Refunds will be available if camp is canceled or if your student does not pass the Student Life Camp Health Questionnaire prior to camp because of a positive COVID-19 test or exposure. 

If your student does not complete the week of camp for any reason, partial refunds cannot be given.

What is the 2021 Student Life Camp Health Questionnaire? 
Parents are required to sign a Camp Health Questionnaire within 24 hours prior to leaving for camp. If any answer on the questionnaire is “yes,” the participant must stay home. Participants waiting for a COVID test or displaying symptoms in the last two weeks will be asked to stay home. For the 2021 Student Life Camp Health Questionnaire see page 9 of the Student Life Camp COVID guide >>>
