Speakers & Worship Leaders

Nathan Smith

Nathan speaks to over 100,000 people annually on college campuses, youth events, camps, retreats, Dnow Weekends, and churches of different denominations. Audiences of all ages respond to his humor, passion for Christ, and clear style of presenting the Gospel. Nathan has jumped off cliffs, out of moving vehicles, and onto human beings during football games. He raced dirt bikes as a kid, speaks French fluently, and was almost killed by a lion in Botswana. When he was only 7 years old, Nathan saw his cat get struck by lightning, and to this day claims it was the best day of his life!

Ryan Brannan

Ryan has been working with students for the last 10 years and is passionate about training middle and high school students to become disciples for Christ. He has been married to his High School sweetheart, Shelley for 6 years and they have two awesome sons, Levi and Canaan. He currently serves as the Family Pastor at New River Church in Lake Wylie, SC and is basically obsessed with Gamecock football, Atlanta Braves baseball and his black lab, Finley. He also really enjoys laughing at how bad J.D. and Nate’s fantasy football teams are. They are terrible….The worst he’s ever seen.

Charlee Buitrago

Charlee is the dang man. He is a Grammy Nominated worship artist and loves having the voice of a male angel. He is married to his lovely wife, Karina and has an incredible two year old boy Jeremias. Charlee first came to the US Of A when he was 17 with a missionary family and has since dedicated his life to serving people by serving God through music. This Venezuelan is good at being awesome, singing, soccer, and other things not listed. You will want to meet him…and you can!

Information / FAQ’s

Normal registration is $369.00 per person!

$50 deposit per person is due in order to confirm spots. The deposit counts towards your total balance and is non-refundable and non-transferable to another group.

Cost includes activities, lodging, meals, camp materials, and a sweet BEACH Camp T-Shirt that you will wear all the days of your life.

The final balance is not due until the summer on the following dates:

Week 1 – May 11th

Week 2 – May 18th

Beach Week – May 24th

Week 3 – May 25th

Week 4 – June 9th

However, please send $50/person deposit today to register – spaces fill fast! We MUST have a deposit to register your group! We do not need names, just an estimate of the total number of participants (campers AND leaders).

* Deposit deadline is March 15. We strongly encourage you to send the deposit for at least the minimum number you are expecting, so that your group can come to Journey Camp on the week that you desire. Many of our weeks are maxed by March 15.

Yes, the price is the same for Youth Leaders/ Adult Volunteers. Youth Leaders/ adult Volunteers count towards your total number of registrants.
You cannot register without a deposit. You will need a $50/person deposit to reserve those spaces. And no, we will not need names. All we need to register is a total number (chaperones and campers).
You will be staying at Hilton Head Beach and Tennis ( You will be staying in condo style resort homes. Each room will have it’s own kitchen. Your rooms will likely have 6 people per room. You will receive housing arrangements when you arrive at camp and complete check in. You will probably not have to room with another church, but due to the changing numbers and capacity limitations, it is a possibility! Don’t worry, you won’t be spending much time in your rooms!
Of course, as long as there is space available! If there isn’t space left, we can always put you on our waiting list. (See below).
Students must be between a graduated sixth grader through a graduated twelfth grader. College students are welcome to attend as Adult Leaders.
We will welcome any group regardless of size. Unfortunately, we cannot have any teenagers roaming around un-chaperoned. There must be an Adult Group Leader.
Unfortunately, we cannot take day campers. Any person desiring to come to camp must have a chaperone and has to participate in the entire week.
We believe you know your students better than we do. However, Hilton Head Beach and Tennis requires that church groups bring 1 chaperone for every 10 teenagers. This needs to be separate for both males and females. Their responsibilities are to make sure that all of your teenagers are getting to where they need to be throughout the day. They are also there to help advise and counsel your teenagers with their daily walks with Christ. Throughout the day, chaperones will participate in all activities (besides tournaments) as if they were a camper themselves. You must have at least one male and one female chaperone if your group contains both genders.
Once a camp week is full, you have the option to be added to our waiting list. We do not require deposits for spots on the waiting list until those spots come available. We will contact you by phone or email should spots open up. When you are next in line, you will have 24 hours to reserve those spots and secure them with the appropriate deposit amount via PayPal or check.
You bet we do! We will provide a promotional video online that you can download to show your students, church staff, and leadership team. We will also email some INCREDIBLE graphics for you to use to create postcards, parent letters, website edits, etc. to reach as many students as possible through Journey Camp. The graphics will be available in the youth pastor portal and the video will be available as a FREE DOWNLOAD. And best of all, if your Church registers early, our Journey Staff will come to your Church for a promo night! We’ll bring Bubble Soccer, Archery Tag, and have one of the most exciting nights ever!
The morning session is a bit more casual and contains interactive worship and some creative announcements (Journey Camp News & video elements). The evening services involve extended worship with singing, media, and dynamic messages, including a specific invitation or challenge each night. All of our camp speakers center their talks on biblical truth, so that God’s Word remains our central focus and the driving force behind all we do at Journey Camp.
You will have the beach just footsteps away – what else could you want?! Besides the white sandy beaches, there are pools, basketball courts, snack shacks, and great hangout spots on campus. We also organize a Deep Sea Fishing trip, which anyone is welcome to join! There is an approximate $70 cost involved for the activity, but it’s an experience of a lifetime! Signups for that will happen closer to camp.
Church Group Time is a time in which your particular group will be able to meet together. We intentionally provide no structure for this time in an effort to allow you to do as you see fit. Some groups recap their day at camp to share what they are learning, some groups come prepared with four devotions for the week, etc. Larger church groups may break up into small groups during this time to discuss what students are learning from God’s Word. This is YOUR time with YOUR group at the end of the day.
We enjoy hosting campus-wide epic games that rival competition held by the Highlanders of Scotland. Capture the flag, Underground Church, Espionage, Hunger Games, Giant Tiki Runway, 300-foot Slip n’ Slide and other mind-blowing events could take place during this time. Some Late Night activities are chill, while some are thematic and redonkulous. Come prepared.
The staff at Hilton Head Beach and Tennis make us excellent food for dinner everyday Monday through Thursday. Breakfast and lunch will be provided by your journey staffer everyday but they will be in your rooms. This will be something quick and easy such as milk and cereal for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch. You’ll be eating things like lasagna, peach cobbler, and delicious BBQ for dinner!
We know checking out is not the most fun, but we hope to make it easier on you by speeding up the checkout process and getting those students on the bus as quickly as possible! We suspect you’ll want to check out and head home before breakfast on Friday, and that’s a-okay with us. So breakfast on Friday will not be provided.
