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.
Students 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.
Adult Sponsors 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.
History of FUGE Camps
CENTRIFUGE– Established 1979 Centrifuge began in 1979 as a youth camp for students who have completed 6th grade through 12th grade. What started out as a few weeks of Centrifuge camp at a couple of locations has turned into a nationwide student ministry camp experience. Since those humble beginnings more than 40 years ago, over one million people have experienced FUGE Camps! Centrifuge combines small group Bible study with recreation, track times, worship, fellowships, and church group time.
The Name: CENTRIFUGE A centrifuge is an apparatus which spins solutions, separating the parts as to different weights and densities. To function effectively, a centrifuge must have an immovable center point. As a youth camp,Centrifuge mixes youth and adults from various churches for one week into specialized groups.
Students are spun out into Bible study and recreation groups which affirm them as unique beings created by God and draw them nearer to God who is the immovable center point. At the end of the week, students are brought back together and sent out to make a significant impact on their homes, churches, schools, and communities
MFUGE – Established 1995 MFUGE is Centrifuge with an emphasis on community missions. Students who have completed 6th grade through high school choose from a variety of ministry areas, including working with children, leading games and recreation, doing painting, construction and yardwork and participating in social ministry such as working with clothing closets and food banks, nursing homes and homeless shelters. Students spend the day involved in these projects, then return to camp that night for worship, fellowship, and church group time.

International Mission Board (IMB) The IMB is very excited to introduce FUGE Camps participants to the Embera, 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 FUGE camps, you will hear first-hand testimonies of how the Lord has transformed lives through a diverse missionary team that includes IMB missionaries, Colombian Baptist partners, Cuban and Panamanian missionaries.
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.
North American Mission Board (NAMB)
Several years ago, Send Network, the North American Mission Board’s church planting initiative, helped Michael and Traci Bryd start Faith Community Bible Church in Baden, the inner-city St. Louis community where Traci was born. Send Relief, the compassion ministry arm of the North American Mission Board and the International Mission Board, began helping them find ways to build witnessing relationships by meeting their community’s physical needs. In Baden, there were plenty of unique opportunities to do that. Michael helped clean up a local business after a shooting, while Traci began teaching cooking classes for women, showing them how to stretch their grocery budget.
When you give to the FUGE Camps mission offering this summer, you’re helping missionaries like the Byrds and new churches like Faith Community provide the basics of life to people in their communities. You’re also helping provide Bibles and supplies and everything else a new church needs to get up and running. Pray that lives will be changed in Baden and that Faith Community Bible Church will have everything they need to love their neighbors. Giving to this project will go a long way toward making that happen.
