BigStuf is more than a camp; it's a new way of life for students. Success for BigStuf isn't what happens while students are in Panama City Beach for camp. Success is what happens after their camp experience.

WHAT MAKES BIGSTUF SO DIFFERENT?

That’s why every moment we have with your students at BigStuf is valuable to us. BigStuf exists to point students towards the life-changing freedom found in Christ. We want to challenge them to ask the big questions, equip them with the knowledge of God’s truth in Scripture, and help them step into the incredible story He has written for their lives. We want to connect students with each other, with their leaders, and ultimately, with God, as they move closer to understanding who God is and how their lives can be different because of Him.

And that’s really what sets us apart. Above all else, BigStuf is about connections. Prioritizing relationships is key to who we are. Camp is a win for us if we’ve accomplished three big things:

  • 1) Connected your students in closer relationship with each other
  • 2) Connected your students in closer relationship with your leaders
  • 3) Connected your students in closer relationship with God

We focus on building relationships between the students in your group by implementing and emphasizing small groups. It’s a designated time for your students to spend together talking through what they are learning and experiencing at camp. Connections between your students and your leaders are built throughout the week as well, as your leaders personally lead your students. We also focus on encouraging and equipping your adult staff and volunteers with practical student ministry knowledge, investing in your adult leaders daily through one-hour Leader Lab sessions at camp. And most importantly, BigStuf focuses on connecting your students with the God who created them. Through incredible worship, engaging teaching, and focused small group materials, we point your students towards a deeper relationship with their Savior. And that’s the biggest connection of all!

Like we said, we get it. There are so many things pulling for your students’ attentions so why not try and connect their attentions to the best things? That’s our desire at BigStuf—to connect your students with the people and the God who love them. When your students walk out the doors of camp, our prayer is that they’ll go more confidently than ever before into the purpose God has for their lives. We know God has an incredible plan for each of your students. We hope you’ll join us in helping connect your students to big stuff this summer at camp!

Jessica Morris, Main Street UMC

The BigStuf experience is like no other - unique, powerful, and done on a high level of excellence not common to most summer camps.

Anthony Rick, Coastline Community Church

My students attended BigStuf this year for the first time. They came back CHANGED!  In our house my girls talk about BigStuf at least once a day.  I am not kidding.

    What better place to have a little fun and experience Christ in a new way than the beautiful beaches of Panama City Beach, FL? The combination of beautiful scenery, endless activities, amazing worship and challenging talks makes BigStuf an experience your students will never forget. It's our prayer that students who spend time with us at BigStuf on the shores of Panama City Beach won't leave unchanged.
