Youth Camp at the Southern Baptist Convention

Students who go with their families to the Southern Baptist Convention's June 23-24 annual meeting in Louisville will have the opportunity to experience Centrifuge on site.

Churches from the Louisville area and SBC entity employees also are invited to bring their students to Fuge as a day camp.

LifeWay has offered Centrifuge for the past five years as an event for rising seventh-graders through college students to attend while their parents attend the convention.

"Offering Centrifuge at the SBC annual meeting location corresponds directly with the SBC initiative to minister to the whole family," said Kevin Spratt, recreation specialist and student events coordinator for LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.

SBC Camp, as the convention Centrifuge is called, will feature Kenneth Bruce, student minister at Porter Memorial Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky, and Jeff Pratt, director of LifeWay student training and events. Drew Causey and Hope Community Church from Frankfort, Kentucky, will lead worship. Parents and family members are invited to attend worship each night with the students. Late-night activities will feature American Idol finalist Phil Stacey and Christian comedy duo Bean & Bailey.

Churches and individuals can call 1-877-CAMP-123 for more details and to pre-register. The SBC Camp Web site is www2.lifeway.com/fuge/index.php/centrifuge/sbc. Registration at the SBC will begin at 4 p.m. Monday, June 22, at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

Worship, Bible study, and recreation will run from Monday night through Wednesday night, June 24. Daytime participants also will receive tickets for a Fuge visit to Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom.

Students of parents attending the SBC annual meeting may attend all Fuge sessions for $40. Church youth groups in the Louisville and surrounding areas can attend for a prorated fee of either $40 or $60 depending on which sessions they wish to attend.
