SUMMER CAMP 2022
Hosted in Anderson, South Carolina each summer, Crossroads combines the best of camp fun with powerful worship and solid biblical teaching for 5 days! Camp takes place on the beautiful campus of Anderson University!
Crossroads brings in high-level speakers and worship leaders each week, but what truly sets their camp apart is their summer camp staff. They hire and train the most passionate and energetic college students from across the US, and they are eager to pour into students and develop long-lasting relationships with them! They seek out students and are available to them throughout the week for spiritual conversations and guidance. It’s no secret that they are what makes their camp so special and keeps churches coming back year after year.
Packed in between two powerful sessions in the morning and evening, their afternoon activities will never leave students bored. Between their original field game “EPIC World Domination,” an amazing obstacle course, a fully-stocked creative studio, exciting athletic tournaments, dance and improv classes, the pool, a color war, an open mic and talent show, and so much more, there will be something for every single student at all hours of the afternoons.
Not only will students have great interactions with camp staff, but they also create space for the group to grow deeper together by reserving space on campus every night so that we can have meaningful conversations, reconvene to debrief, and deepen community.
There are a lot of camp experiences out there, but there’s nothing like the Crossroads experience.
