Male students will be hosted on an entirely separate campus than our female students. We will carry our church’s spirit of excellence in making sure that your high school Students have an amazing experience while hosted on our facilities! We will spare no expense in making sure that they are hosted well. This includes luxury portable showers that are outfitted for each student to shower privately.
What will my student be doing during this week?
Our camp is mainly made up of the following three experiences:
- Morning/Evening Worship Services: These services include amazing music, over the top creativity, and most importantly, a life-changing message delivered by one of our camp speakers
- Community Missions Projects: We mobilize all of our students to make a positive impact all over South Florida. We partner our students with awesome organizations such as Kids in Distress and Feeding South Florida. After a week of these projects, our student contribute to the communities around them through the love of Christ.
- Recreation: At UNITED Camp, we love REC! We take our students through a variety of recreational activities that are fun regardless of a student’s athletic ability or competitiveness. You wouldn’t believe how much our students bond with one another and their adult leaders after having a ton of fun together.

- Change of clothes for 4 days
- Portable chargers (A minimum amount of outlets will be available for charging phones, etc.)

What are houses?
Houses are a way to make a big student ministry feel small. Each house is a specific grade. Your student is automatically assigned to a house depending on what grade he/she is in. This keeps students close in age together. During the entire week of camp, houses compete against each other for (fake) points to win the championship. By the end of the week, houses are more like families!
How do I know what house my student is in?
Houses actually take place every Wednesday night at The Wave! Official names/colors for each grade will be released June 2018. Check back here for updates!

If your student is gluten free or vegan, NO WORRIES! We got them covered! We have a menu crafted for your student’s dietary restrictions. When you sign your student up, just make sure to mark down the dietary restrictions portion.

My student has never been to camp. How do they get introduced to other students and leaders?
Upon arrival of camp, students are met with highly energetic leaders where they will be taken from registrations to their house where they will be introduced to other leaders and students. Some students arrive the first day of camp and are welcomed by friendly strangers but leave camp having made family and friends! If students want to know their leaders/students in their house prior to camp, they are always welcome to attend the wave every Wednesday night at 7PM.
Does my child need any other forms for camp?
No, this year we have combined the medical release form with the online registration form.
