Serve 15 is a youth camp intended to develop an understanding of, and passion for, humble service and teamwork in 15 year olds. All young men and women who turn 15 on or before July 18, 2020 are invited to attend.
Serve 15 makes use of UPBC's Woodlands campus. Woodlands' facilities include camper cabins, a chapel, dining hall, recreation building and fields, and water front on beautiful Little Lake.
In addition to enjoying the Woodlands campus, campers will spend time away from the campgrounds as they enjoy a variety of service and adventure outings. These outings will allow campers to serve in the local community as well as enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.
Back at Woodlands, campers will serve as their own camp staff, cleaning and maintaining the facilities, helping to prepare meals, and washing dishes. Of course, they’ll also take part in traditional camp fun including swimming, boating, biking, ropes course, team building, and chapel sessions.
Serve 15 is about knowing the One who became a humble servant for us, and learning to follow Him in living out servanthood and humility. Activities are planned to provide campers with opportunities to serve sacrificially and to experience the joy of imitating Christ. Be ready to roll up your sleeves and grab that toilet brush!
