Christian Discovery

Every Summit camp includes at least one scheduled ‘Christian Discovery’ time, running for approximately 90 minutes. These sessions are tailored to the individual group but may include the following:

Primary Camps

Singing

Students and leaders participate in singing age-appropriate songs to and about God.

Memory verse activity

Students are presented with a Bible verse to memorise in a creative way e.g. Make it into a song, act it out, put the words in order and other challenges.

Bible talk

The students will be presented with a short Bible-based talk. Topics are engaging, relevant and chosen specifically for the group. There is also a supporting activity like an interactive game or activity to help students understand the point of the talk.

Discussion groups

Students break up into smaller groups (approx 12 students with 1 leader) to discuss what has been explored during the Bible talk. This provides a more relaxed environment to ask questions and reflect on what has been taught. Leaders facilitate the groups in a non-threatening way, allowing all students to share what they believe, whilst providing insight into what the Bible has to say.

Secondary Camps

Engagement

Teenagers can sometimes have a ‘stand back’ approach to new situations. The session usually starts with a game, skit, song, video or similar to connect with the students in a fun way, and prepare them to engage with the speaker and topic.

Singing

Singing is sometimes done on secondary camps, depending on age, gender and school culture.

Further Options for Primary and Secondary Students

Other options for programmed Christian input come in the form of leaders’ testimonies, optional prayer groups, debriefs, and an evening JAM (Jesus & me) time where the students are encouraged to reflect more deeply on their relationship with God & how to live a life that shows their faith.
