What is Base Camp?



Base Camp is typically five days and four nights of fun, fellowship, and intense preparation for college bound Christians. In a safe but challenging environment we answer the tough questions Christian teens are asking (and being asked).

Questions including but not limited to:

– Is truth relative? Can something be true for me but not for you?

– Does science contradict or complement Christianity’s creation account?

– Is the Bible reliable and trustworthy? How do we know?

– Is the historical Jesus the same as the Jesus of the New Testament?

– Was the resurrection a real historical event? How do we know?

– What exactly is the gospel? What are false gospels?

– Are traditional Christian sexual ethics outdated and bigoted?

– How do we love our LGBT friends and family without compromising the truth?

– What do people of other religious faiths believe? How can we love them well?

– What do atheists actually believe? How can we love them well?

– What does evangelism look like in a postmodern & post-Christian culture?

– What exactly are we saved for? What now?
