Who is ready for BigStuf 2022?!

BigStuf summer camp is hosted right on Florida’s most beautiful beach: Panama City Beach. It’s a fun week-long experience for students to hang out and learn about Jesus. Students will be challenged, motivated and given practical tools to live out their faith! This camp is open to new 7th graders through those who just graduated high school. Get more information below.

Small Groups

At BigStuf, we believe the big event isn’t the main event. Success in the big room means student pastors and leaders are set up well for Small Groups.

Small Groups allow leaders and students time to directly connect after each session; to wrestle and engage with questions, thoughts, and ideas that are in the mind of every student.

Small groups are pivotal in helping students grow in community with one another and grow stronger in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Who is ready for Big Stuf 2022?!

BigStuf summer camp is hosted right on Florida’s most beautiful beach: Panama City Beach. It’s a fun week-long experience for students to hang out and learn about Jesus. Students will be challenged, motivated and given practical tools to live out their faith! This camp is open to new 7th graders through those who just graduated high school.

We will depart from the church on June 20th at 7 A.M. and return late Friday afternoon on June 24th.

The cost is $500.00 and covers travel, lodging, meals while at camp and camp ticket. It doesn’t include food on the way down or back, snacks while at camp (there’s a cool snack bar in the hotel as well as vendors outside), or souvenirs. 

Scholarships

While $500.00 is a tremendous value for an all-inclusive week away for beach camp, it is still a lot of money. We understand that there are a myriad of reasons why paying for camp could be tough on your family. We want this trip to be accessible to every single youth who wants to go.
A number of partial scholarships are available. Please contact katie@firstmethodistclinton.orgorg for more information. Please do not hesitate to ask for this. We never want finances to be the reason that any youth misses out on this week.
Please fill out a separate form for every individual attendee.
Your spot will not be reserved until the initial deposit is received. Both a registration form and a deposit must be received by February 28th to secure a spot at camp!
