COLUMBIA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY
June 22 – June 26
Incredible Communicators, Passionate Worship
Archery Tag, Laser Tag, Bubble Soccer, etc
2020 will mark our inaugural year at Columbia International University in Columbia, SC!
JOURNEY comes to CIU June 22-26, with a schedule very similar to our schedule at Toccoa Falls. We will offer on campus rec, amazing worship and teaching, late night activities, AND our Journey famous Lake Days (at Lake Murray).
The main difference for our CIU location is that we will offer a “SERVE track” for youth leaders who want to challenge their students to get outside their comfort zones, and serve the local Columbia community. The SERVE track is not required for all campers at CIU, but will require that you provide transportation for your group each afternoon.
If you are interested in our CIU location for Journey Camp, please contact our office as we are still finalizing the schedule and details of the week.
Journey Camp Speakers
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!
