Action-packed Ignite Mobile Camp brings the fun of camp to you. Get ready for five full days of exciting activities, adventures and learning about God at your local United Methodist church. Highly trained NextGen college-age staff does life-on-life ministry with every camper. Campers have the option to choose from one of three incredible activity options: technology, athletics, and creativity. With the opportunity to either develop an area in which they are already gifted or stretch themselves to learn new things, campers can continue to grow into who God envisioned them to be!
Technology: Love video games? Tech is the right option for you! Campers will either have the opportunity to either build and program their own computer or create and design their own video game from scratch.
Athletics: If running around, being competitive, and playing a variety of sports is your thing, choose Athletic. Our counselors will spend time leading campers in games like Football, Soccer, Kickball, and more!
Creative: Would you rather spend time creating and designing your own unique projects? Choose creative! Our well trained counselors will assist you in creating a variety of art and writing projects during the week with the opportunity to share those gifts with your family and fellow campers on the final day of camp.

“What a looooong day!” Josh exclaimed as he slumped exhaustedly into his chair after a particularly hot Missouri summer day. His wife, Kara, sat across from him in the living room with their newborn child bouncing happily upon her lap, looking back at her husband in bemusement.
“What was bad about today?” she replied as the right corner of her mouth turned up in a faint smirk. After being married for just over six years, she knew to ask the question, even though she thought she already knew the answer.
Josh glanced back up at Kara and their son, a mischievous grin spreading across his face. Had his sarcasm become so transparent to her after their many years together?
“Well I played a lot of gaga ball today, talked to some pastors and church members, ate chicken nuggets, and took a lot of pictures,” he said smiling the entire time.
“Uh-huh…. And you get paid to do this?”
“How dare you insinuate that I all I do is just play around?” Josh replied sardonically. “Honey, it’s like Brett Favre used to say: ‘They pay me for the months and months of preparation I put in. I’d almost play the ‘game’ for free.’”

Working for Eagle Lake is great, because I get to be a part of a team that wants to show campers the love of Christ, and when the church takes that next step it reminds me that we are all working towards the same goal. This past summer, I saw those same goals in every church! I saw the want to continue to invest in the community. Every year I come back to Missouri, I see communities grow. I see the same campers invested in their own growth with the Lord. I believe we are starting to see change through communities all over the state.
I go to Aurora United Methodist and we loved having Eagle Lake here! I helped out as a crew member, we had a group bible study that included our Jr High and High School students. We enjoyed having them here. I'm a freshman, but those five days of camp have changed my life and I am so grateful. In those short 5 days, I got to see a kid gain the confidence to pray out loud, and even gain more confidence myself to dance and sing in front of a little over 100 people. This camp has changed so many lives, and so many more to come.
