Camp Booyah is an Anglican summer missions adventure camp for rising 6th graders to graduated high school seniors.
But what does that mean?
Anglican – Rooted in the rich liturgy and tradition of the Anglican church.
Summer – It kicks off this summer from June 14-19, 2020.
Missions– Each morning, campers serve those in need in the local community through a variety of mission projects.
Adventure– Camp is full of surprises, competitions, and more memory-making activities than you can cram into a week.
In 2014, Drew Hill had a vision to create an experience for middle and high schoolers that he couldn’t find anywhere else. He wanted students from Anglican churches to have a place to come together for worship, community, and mission.
In the summer of 2015, Camp Booyah held its first week at Cedar Grove Retreat in Kannapolis, NC, with 78 campers and leaders from 7 Anglican churches. Over the years, Camp Booyah has grown to hundreds of campers and leaders from more than 20 different churches! In 2018, Camp Booyah moved to Watermarks Camp in Scottsville, VA.
In 2019, Anglican Youth Ministry 501(c)(3) was formed to expand the vision of Camp Booyah. In the coming years, our vision is to offer multiple summer camp weeks, winter retreats, leadership training events for upperclassmen, and youth ministry training events for staff and volunteers. All of these events will be for the purpose of coming alongside Anglican churches to help disciple the next generation of leaders and resilient followers of Christ.
