FCA Boy's Basketball Camp 2018

FCA Boys Basketball Team Camp

The FCA Boys Basketball Team Camp was held June 11-13 at Bryan College in Dayton, TN.  At the camp, high school teams from all over the Southeast were able to compete against one another and enhance their skills on the court. While the coaches had a Bible study and fellowship time, the athletes were involved in small group sessions and assemblies to help them deal with real life issues, achieve excellence, and be successful, committed athletes and young men. 

A Christian collegiate athlete served as a mentor to each boys team and participants were given FCA camp T-shirts, an FCA Athlete Bible, and a lanyard.  

Following are some quotes from athletes who attended the camp:

"Thank you for letting us come to FCA Camp. I think that attending the camp made us closer and realize things that we're doing wrong." -- TL

"I enjoyed this camp because I was not only able to play basketball with my brothers, but learn about God at the same time." 

"Thank you for letting us all go to the camp. I thought it was fun. It made me realize a lot of different things in my game and in my life." 

2018 Camp Verse

Fight. Finish. Faith.

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.” 2 Timothy 4:7

Athletes are conditioned to be strong both physically and mentally. The measure of great athletes shows how much faster, stronger and smarter they are than the opponent.  But as Christian competitors, we have the game-changing advantage of being spiritually strong.

We serve a strong God, and we are called to be like Him in every area of our lives. God calls us to be solid in our faith, to fight the good fight with perseverance, and surround ourselves with a firm support system in order to finish strong. With Jesus Christ and His Word transforming us daily, we can be strong 24/7!

FCA Girl's Basketball Camp 2018

FCA Girls Basketball Camp - June 4 - 6 - Bryan College - Dayton, TN

The camp was held June 4-6 at Bryan College in Dayton, TN, and high school teams from all over the Southeast were able to compete against one another to practice their skills.  Also included were assemblies and small group sessions designed to help athletes deal with real life issues, achieve excellence, and be successful, committed athletes and young women. A christian collegiate athlete served as a mentor to each team. There was also a coaches’ fellowship time each evening.  Camp attendees received a camp T-shirt, FCA Athlete Bible, and a lanyard.

Below are highlights from the week:

"FCA camp meant a lot to me.  It helped me understand the bad things in my life and how to fix them. I loved huddle time because it really bonded our team. This camp has inspired me to read the Bible more."  -- Hope

"I had so much fun at the camp.  I loved how it helped the team bond and get to know personal things about each other that we never would have learned without it. I liked the chapel time and the activities like painting the candle holders. I will become different by realizing how important church is and start going with a purpose."

"I learned more about how God is always there and will be there for me even through my worst times. Chapel and Huddle time were probably my favorite part of the whole experience. I will definitely read the Bible more and learn from it and work on the sins or struggles that I struggle with."  -- Faith.

"The camp became another outlet to just learn about Jesus and connect more with God. I really liked the L.O.G (Lady of God) time we had before worship on the second night. I’ve changed because I’ve begun to read my Bible more each day and just pray more and talk to God. Overall, I would go back to the camp in a heartbeat and it helped our team to connect!" -- Victoria

"FCA camp was really fun and I wish I would’ve been able to go more than just my senior year. My favorite part was being able to come together as a team and put drama aside while we were in chapel and playing games. I definitely will look at people from a different perspective and not be so quick to judge."

"FCA camp has always meant a lot to me.  Five years ago, I was a new Christian and it enabled me to step out of my comfort zone and grow spiritually as a huddle leader. I love the way that FCA uses sports as a platform to reach young individuals who may never get the chance to hear about God. I loved seeing our girls give their lives to Christ or rededicate their lives and see how they bonded during that time. I personally will be different from a coaching perspective. My first purpose in coaching is to be a light for Christ in how I live and also be bold in sharing with my team/individuals. However, I felt the past year I got so caught up in coaching that my boldness in speaking up and sharing the gospel slipped.  Being at FCA camp with my team allowed me to recognize and refocus on what truly is important in these girls' lives." -- Shelby Campbell, assistant coach 

FCA Leadership Camp 2018

FCA Leadership Competitors Camp

This year’s camp theme “STRONG” was based on 2 Timothy 4:7: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.” This theme was an inspiration for campers as they learned how God calls them to be solid in their faith, to fight the good fight with perseverance, and to surround themselves with a firm support system so that they can finish strong.

"The four-day event was filled with more than 400 middle and high school students who came together to worship the Lord, learn leadership skills, compete, and be led in small group huddles by 50 amazing college huddle leaders," says Christa Lanier, FCA campus ministry. "This camp was life changing for all involved."

Camp huddle leader Georgia McKee says the huddle leaders also benefit from attending the camp. Leaders start the week determined to see the lives of young athletes changed, she says. They eagerly pray over one another to provide strength and wisdom throughout the week. But at the end of the week, each camper leaves changed, but the huddle leaders do as well. It is just an amazing week of God encounters.

Christa Lanier also led the group of college athletes who served as middle school huddle leaders. She trained them before camp and was there for them during camp. The huddle leaders do a tremendous job of pouring into the student athletes and of course, they look up to them being on the collegiate level.
