Camp Connect

Camp Connect allows middle school students (rising 6th-9th grades) to be catalysts as we come together to serve our community as Jesus would have served. Students spend their time during the day in Pitt County, NC, serving through various projects, assisting with local vacation Bible schools, or using their dramatic and musical gifts to engage the community and build relationships.

Day projects are designed to connect students to the heart of God and allow each student to grow into what He’s calling them to be. This camp is about transformation and restoration, not only in the lives of students but also in the lives of the people they serve.

For the fifth year, camp will be housed on the ECU campus.  This year, once again, our home base will be in Jones Hall – across the street from Tyler.  Daytime activities will include participation in either project sites, outreach activities including dance and drama, or VBS opportunities.

Evenings will be spent on East Carolina’s campus experiencing community as the body of Christ, debriefing work experiences, eating, worshiping and hanging out with other middle school-age kids and team leaders.

Camp culminates on Thursday, June 21st with a worship and commissioning service at St. James United Methodist Church.
