What is True Life Summer Camp?

True Life Ministries Youth Summer Camp is a great opportunity for students to experience a full week with their friends/student ministry. Camp provides an opportunity to make some new friends and encounter God, who can bring hope to their everyday life.

Cell Phone Policy:
We believe cell phones can be both a distraction and a tool.  Students are permitted to bring phones if they choose and if parents allow it.  True Life, BCA, and Silver Lake Camp are not responsible for lost or damaged cell phones.  Students will be permitted to use cell phones for photos and to share what’s going on at Summer Camp on social media, but ONLY during the Activity time.  If cell phones become a DISTRACTION from what is happening at camp, leaders have been instructed to confiscate them until camp is over.  It is our hope that cell phone usage will be utilized in a healthy way.
