Your camp is exceptional and each one of our kids has loved coming. Our youngest can't wait until he's old enough next summer. We appreciate your partnership in raising up children to know and love Jesus!! Thank you!!
- A Camper’s Parent
(A child that attended camp) goes to a charismatic church, but children aren’t encouraged to dance. He loves to dance. So (at camp) he’s dancing and doing flips, and he’d never be able to do flips at his church. Not only was dancing encouraged, but all of the campers were cheering him on as he’s doing all of these things. He came home and couldn’t stop talking about camp and everything he learned: “God is with me! And most important, we’re supposed to respect others!” It was interesting to see it all through his eyes.

Ignite Mobile Camps act to bring elementary and middle schoolers closer to Christ through activities and fellowship during these traveling day camps across Missouri. Next Generation Ministries partners with Eagle Lake Camps and Heartland Camps to host multiple Christian camps for 10 weeks throughout the summer at local churches. Ignite Mobile Camp is held from Monday to Friday with drop off typically between 8:30-9:00 am and pick up around 4:00-5:00 pm depending on the preferences of the local church. Much like these time differences, Ignite is designed to adjust to the unique needs of each community so campers are able to have the church camp that they desire.
Campers will need to wear regular active clothes and tennis shoes or sandals with backs and bring a water bottle, water games gear (modest swimsuit, towel, flip flops, sunscreen), and potentially a lunch depending on your local church.
Each day students will enjoy time with their fellow campers and counselors doing a wide range of activities. Their time will be split between small and large group time. In their small groups, campers will have Bible study, discussion time, games and one-on-one time with their counselors. With the larger group activities range from sports like gaga ball, nine square, bungee jump, rock wall, water games, and indoor and outdoor games, to lunch, snack, worship, dancing, singing songs, and watching skits.
