Play this video at a student gathering so students will see what camp is about and get a snapshot of this summer’s theme.
Display the camp poster at different spots around your church campus. This will provide camp dates and price for students to see. Once your group is registered, display the theme poster as a reminder of camp.

Sign-Up Students & Adults
Post this sign up roster or pass it around at a student meeting. This is for students who have made the decision to come to camp with your group.
In order to provide the best atmosphere and supervision, we ask all groups to bring 1 male sponsor for every 5 boys, and 1 female sponsor for every 5 girls.
Due to safety and liability concerns, FUGE will not allow students to be without adult supervision in housing areas. Adult sponsors are responsible for monitoring students during un-programmed times, the dress code (check your students at breakfast) and behavior of your students.
All adult sponsors must be at least 19 years old; basically, someone who has been out of high school for at least one year. We encourage each church to select these sponsors at their own discretion.
All adult sponsors must pass a background check and meet all the requirements listed in the Church Participant Agreement, located in the forms section.
Adult sponsors should model appropriate behavior and dress code. Adult sponsors should encourage participation and promptness by setting an example.
Check out the IN HIS IMAGE theme artwork to use in mail outs, social media, emails or texts.
Plan a parent meeting to promote camp to all parents and then another for those parents whose children have signed up for camp to provide all the camp details. Check out ‘How to Have a Parent Meeting’ at the link below.

International Mission Board (IMB)
The Embera are a group of unreached peoples spread throughout the mountain and river regions of Colombia and Panama. As Animists, believing that all material objects are inhabited by Spirits that must be appeased, the Embera have lived in fear. As indigenous minorities, they have often been victims of tribal and organized crime violence. But, God loves the Embera and has not forgotten them.
During your time at FUGE Camps, you will hear first-hand testimonies of how the Lord has transformed Embera lives through a diverse missionary team that includes IMB missionaries, Colombian Baptist partners, Cuban and Panamanian missionaries and have an opportunity to give to the missions offering to support the work of these missionaries. Pray for the Embera people to experience life change and those serving and ministering to them.
North American Mission Board (NAMB)
Vergel and Kelsey Brown and their children moved to Portland, OR in 2019 to start a church. Many of the people the Browns first met in Portland had not only never heard of Jesus but had never even set foot in a church. They were genuinely curious about why the Brown family had moved to Portland and that curiosity opened the door to important and unexpected conversations.
In 2020, Send Network, the North American Mission Board’s church planting initiative, helped the Browns start Redemption Church in Northeast Portland. Now, the work of growing that new church has become a family affair. Vergil and Kelsey’s children help teach Sunday School, run the live stream, set up chairs and signs, and welcome newcomers. Their oldest child even started a home Bible study with her friends from school.In a community that had no gospel witness, people in Northeast Portland are now being introduced to and are responding to the gospel.
When you give to the missions offering this summer at camp, you’re helping missionaries like the Browns start new churches like Redemption Church. You’re helping provide Bibles and chairs and microphones and everything else a new church needs to get up and running. Pray that lives will be changed in Northeast Portland and that Vergil, Kelsey, and their children will have everything they need to love their neighbors. Giving to this project will go a long way toward making that happen.
MFuge Local Missions
Every year a portion of the mission offering received at camp goes back to the local community through MFuge grants. Local ministries that we partner with can apply for the grant to continue ministry throughout the year. It is amazing to see how the Lord uses these ministries throughout the year.
