'Strong' Camps Theme: God's Followers Are Called to be Like Him in Every Area of Their Lives-Including Sports

The school year is coming to a close, and many parents are planning their kids' summer activities. FCA is in the planning stages too, and excited about our upcoming Camps season. The 2018 Camps theme of "Strong" is based on 2 Timothy 4:7 and focuses on the fact that believers serve a strong God, and His followers are called to be like Him in every area of their lives-including sports. "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," said FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson. Gear up for the Camps season below.

"After this Camp, I want to be known as the kid who loves Jesus, not just the wrestler."
