Faith. Leadership. Service. Intrepid Wildfire Camp is a Christian camp in Missouri that provides the perfect opportunity for you or your youth group to grow together through serving the community, pouring into the Word, and enjoying the Central Methodist University campus.

During this week-long, overnight camp, middle and high schoolers will have a blast with friends from across Missouri. Activities include swimming, intramural sports, music, ultimate frisbee, capture the flag and so much more! These fun games paired with daily service activities and worship will leave your camper excited to live out God’s work in all they do. Invite your friends to join so together you can build your friendship and relationship with the Lord. Intrepid guarantees a summer worth sharing!
The number one question we received at camp was “What about this Bible?” We gave away over 20 Bibles at camp. We had on little girl who came, and her friend’s mom came and talked to me. She said that her daughter was embarrassed because she had to borrow her grandmother’s bible for camp, and it was awful because it had all these old words in it. Not only did we give her a Bible, but we gave her little brother a Bible as well. And I just loved it because they had been coming to Upward Basketball but had never come to church. It wasn’t until after camp that they felt confident in doing that.
