Youth Group

 Base Camp Youth Group.

Equipping STUDENTS to love God and love others . . .

A stellar team brings their creativity and genuine love for youth, middle school and high school, to a weekly large group meeting, and are committed to building long-term spiritually based relationships in small group personal setting.

 

Our youth groups and activities welcome any young person including friends from school and other activities, and non-believing friends. 

 

We encourage young people to ask questions, explore their faith and make it their own rather than simply a family tradition. We strive to make youth group relevant to their lives, engaging and fun. We create an emotionally safe atmosphere where individuals are respected, listened to, and taken seriously. Our leaders are glad to engage in one-on-one mentoring, discipleship, and simply being a sounding board; they also share their own lives and hearts as they seek to connect with the students.

 

During the school year Middle and High School Students meet on different nights in the Youth Room (Room 9). There will be snacks, hang-out time, a Bible lesson, small groups, and games.  Middle School Base Camp (grades 6-8) meets on Thursdays from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.  Senior High Base Camp (grades 9-12) meets on Sundays from 6:30pm  to 8:30pm.  

 

Summer Base Camp gatherings will be on Sundays for all students having finished grade 6-12 in June of 2024. We will be meeting every other Sunday from 6:30-8:30pm. Both the JH & SH will be meeting together, and we will be in the Outdoor Worship area (weather permitting). We will meet on June 16, June 30, July 14, July 28, August 11, and August 25.  The August 11th meeting will be the first time students entering grade 6 in September will be welcomed to youth group and it will be an extended meeting.  See event details below.

The Hartford Project Urban Mission Trip

This summer Basecamp will be doing a 5-day local missions trip in partnership with the Hartford Project (THP). This trip will be an immersion into urban ministry for Youth (students 6th grade to 12th), and will run Sunday, June 23 to Thursday, June 27.

The three emphases of this trip are service, discipleship, and life in the city. After training and worshipping with other participating Youth Groups on Sunday (discipleship) students will spend the next four days serving alongside students from other churches around Connecticut (service). The Hartford Project volunteers with nearly 30 non-profit organizations in Hartford ranging from homeless ministries to youth crisis counseling centers. Throughout the trip students will experience urban life and will learn about issues of social justice & racial reconciliation as they relate to Hartford (life in the city)..

Basecamp Senior High Beach Day

The Durbois' Beach House is hosting our High School students (those entering 9th grade - 12th grade graduates) for a beautiful day on the beach. There will be games on the beach, boating & tubing, swimming, devotions in a park, delicious food, and more. Cost for the trip is $30 which will include transportation, lunch, dinner, and snacks.

Covenant Day Camp

Junior High students (going into grades 7-8) and Senior High students (going into grades 9-12) are a welcome and necessary part of Day Camp. Student volunteers can expect to grow in their personal relationship with Christ through worship, participating in a Ministry Team that serves the younger campers, daily devotions, leadership training, and FUN. There is also an optional Youth Trip after camp ends on Wednesday to give students an opportunity to bond and fellowship outside of leading Day Camp (trip cost applies).
