“To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.“ 1 Corinthians 9:22

We understand the need that camp directors have when staffing summer camps for their children. Who will come do the recreation that we can trust? For many years now, Sports Crusaders has filled this gap for a few associations. Up until 5 years ago, we only offered the team sports that we send to churches for week long day camps. In 2017, we launched our first “Camp Team” to work at Associational and Church camps. As we launch this “new” program we are sensitive to the needs of each camp and realize that one size does not fit all!

We recruit college age athletes who must have the following qualifications:

  1. Love Jesus and not afraid to share him with others

  2. Athletic in nature AND

  3. They must love to work with children

These students must attend training week with the other student missions with MBC and Sports Crusaders.

Our students are willing to be engaged with all of the students at each camp . They want to be able to share the gospel and/or their testimony with them.

The short answer is yes. They can be as involved with them as much as you want them to be, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their preparedness for the recreation portion of the camp. Our team will need to be available at least 1hour prior to recreation time for set up as well as after for cleanup.

Absolutely! The key to that is good COMMUNICATION ahead of time.

No. We have all of the games and equipment to provide a fun recreation time at camp. If there are other games you would like to provide it will not be turned away!
