IMPACT Camp - is offered for 6th Grade (finished 5th) through college. The week involves all 350-400 teens being divided up in age graded Bible Study groups, meaning that all the 6th graders will be in one class, 7th grade in a class and so on. The students will have a chance to sign up for track times. During the afternoons they can participate in hour long sessions that can be discussion based or activity based.  There will be sessions that include sharing your witness via social media to kayaking and a ropes course. There will be plenty of spots and activities for all to do as they wish.
IMPACT UNITED - is offered for 6th Grade (finished 5th) through college. This will be the 4th year that the 2nd week of camp has been offered.  Last year we had a total participants of 200+. The week involves all churches that register in activities and Bible studies for just their church, hence the name IMPACT UNITED.  Each youth group will be involved in Bible study and team building activities together.  The activities will include: kayaking, tubing, ropes course, paintball, along with worship each night.
Registration is scheduled to open mid-September and can be accessed impactcamp.org - click on the week that you want to attend and that will open the registration portal.  You then will be prompted for the number of people - students plus adults that you want to register.  To reserve a spot is $50 per person and that can be paid with a credit card or a church check.  If you choose the check option the spots will be held for 30 days.
We look forward to seeing you at IMPACT this summer!


For summer camps, grade levels are based on the student completing that grade level at the end of the  school year.



Tennessee Baptist Camps are led by strong, committed, Christian college students, seminary students and childhood education leaders who have a love for sharing Christ with students of all ages. They invest time in the lives of campers and adult sponsors, and will demonstrate the radical faith of one who is in love with Jesus in all they do!


We love adult sponsors! For many reasons, it is necessary that adult sponsors attend camp with the students from your church. In order to have the proper ratios of sponsors to students, it is necessary for Journey & Impact camps that one adult, same gender sponsor attend for every 10 students. All sponsors must be at least 20 years old.


“I have been to many camps offered by other organizations. I feel like Journey camp was the best for children!”

“The staff did an outstanding job! This was one of the best organized camps that I have attended. Thank you!”

“I would like to thank each of you for all your very hard work- for the late nights and early mornings and all the energy and love you heaped on us all week!”

"Awesome facilities.  Great activities for the kids.  Bible Study  great.  Good food."

"The camp was wonderful, the children were always smiling and laughing.  The cabins were clean and neat."
"It is an experience I will always remember."
