Hosted at First-St. Charles UMC, 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 seven 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.’”

(A particular child that attended camp) probably has emotional defiant behavior issues.  Because of that he gets picked on a lot and is bullied a lot.  So, that week he was getting bullied a lot and was causing behavioral issues for their group.  Daily, I would have to talk to him and talk to the counselors to try to figure out what to do.  But one afternoon near the end of the day, something had happened. I and a counselor sat down and talked with the child about this tree in our playground.  We talked to him and we talked about God.  I can’t even remember what was said, but since then he has come back every Sunday.  And nights (Saturdays) when his mom works, he asks to come spend the night with us.  His mom told us that “he had never experienced God like that.”  He still always wants to go back to that one tree.

As a first year parent, everything exceeded our expectations, from the enthusiastic welcome in the parking lot to the growth we saw in our son after a week at Eagle Lake Camp. Thumbs up!
