TRANSFORMATIVE TEACHING: Practical training with Brett Kunkle and Kiley Butler is designed to provide tools to help your students communicate their faith. Adults will be challenged through a special training track of their own.
PASSIONATE WORSHIP: We love the band "Esterlyn" because they have a Christ-centered vertical focus and maturity that emphasizes true worship, rather than simply hyping students.
ENVIRONMENT: We have the content of a conference with the environment and amenities of a camp. It's the best of both worlds.
UP CLOSE EXPERIENCE: Our goal is to create a powerful experience that allows for greater interaction with the speakers and musicians than the typical rock concert environment.
ALL INCLUSIVE: One price takes care of your program, housing, and food.
BEAUTIFUL LOCATION: Right on Lake of the Ozarks in central Missouri at Windermere Conference Center.
AFTERNOON OPTIONS: Your students may choose from recreation, seminars, missions, or free time.
GREAT HOUSING: Each room sleeps 8 and has a private bath.
PACED SCHEDULE: Return home rested with renewed relationships with your students.
ADULT PROGRAM: Youth veterans invest in you and your adult volunteers to encourage and provide support.
TOP NOTCH PRODUCTION: Using a combination of creativity and excellence, we strive to use the best tools to connect with all of your students.
AFFORDABLE: We focus on keeping expenses low so you can bring more students.
FOR ALL YOUTH: Bring your senior and junior high to one event (entering 7th through exiting 12th).
AreaOne SummerCON 2016
2016 Theme: ENGAGE
"Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.” Mark 1:18
Follow me. That’s all He said to them. And they followed. These men did not simply lag behind a great teacher. They engaged in a tangible relationship with the Lord and lived lives of adventure, suffering, and dynamic ministry - all because they followed. AreaOne 2016 is about challenging teenagers to engage with Jesus Christ, listen to His voice, and be powerful testimonies of His love and grace. Engaging with Him involves your heart and your head. It requires knowledge, wisdom, and courage. During the weeklong camp students will be given tools, inspiration, and practical guidance to continue with, or begin for the first time, a powerful engagement with Jesus Christ.
I came looking for truth and He gave me life. - High School Student
This week I got immensely closer with my whole youth group and learned also that my youth group leader is an amazing guy. I finally decided to give everything to God and follow his path till death - 9th Grader
I am looking forward to this camp. I have taken my youth to this camp for 3 years and hoping to take another youth group this year. If you are looking for a camp that has fun, good music, good food, good activities, freedom and structure then this is your camp. Let me mention my biggest reason I bring kids to this camp. I trust it to be gospel centered, biblically accurate, Christ exalting, and God honoring. I am responsible to God for these kids, and I trust this camp and the directors. Also you can believe that this camp has been prayed for for months. - Pastor Luke Lawson
I’ve been fighting God’s conviction to come back to Him and this week has been the push I needed to fall back into God’s arms - 12th Grader
