Compass Points :: Biblical and Theological Foundations
What makes our church camps so uniquely wonderful and sets us apart from other camping organizations is our firm foundation in our beliefs as Christians. This course will enable participants to deepen their knowledge and strengthen their understanding of our biblical and theological roots as the core value for all that we do in our outdoor ministry settings. This course will be held at Calvin Center (outside of Atlanta, GA) and will be taught by seminary faculty, Dr. Martha Moore-Keish and Dr. Brennan Breed.

October 19-22
Compass Points :: Program Design and Implementation
Program is the most important facet of outdoor ministry. From determining the need for a program to evaluating the final product, today’s camp and retreat leaders need to be knowledgeable in how programs are designed and implemented. This course will focus on an overview of human growth and development in relation to outdoor ministry, and will look at program models and how they serve as an extension of a ministry’s mission statement. The course will be held at Calvin Center (outside of Atlanta, GA) and will be taught by seminary faculty, Dr. Kathy Dawson and Joel Winchip. You can learn more about this event (and register) by going to the Compass Points website.
