ENCOUNTER was created to encourage and support teenagers as they explore and express their faith in an unfailing God. The atmosphere created by such a focused week creates moments people encounter God.
Interactive classes combined with vibrant devotionals, up-lifting evenings of worship and powerful keynote speakers create a camp experience unlike any other.
Evening entertainment proves to be the perfect way to end each day. One night you can relax and laugh with Adam Trent(comedian), another you’ll listen to the inspirational music of the national touring band The Afters. To put it simply... you will never find another camp like Encounter.
