Why Crossings

See Lives Changed

More than anything, you want to see your students impacted by the gospel of Christ and lives forever changed. We get that on a deeply personal level, because that’s our mission, too! However, group leaders like yourself are too often bogged down with the logistics required to plan engaging experiences that help students disconnect from distractions and make space for genuine growth.

Don’t try to do this alone! Your time and energy is limited and should be spent on relational ministry — investing in the everyday lives of your students. We want to be your partner in ministry and help your students encounter the gospel like never before. We intentionally infuse the gospel into every detail and high-energy activity so that campers can go deeper with Christ and with each other. You are freed up to focus on your group and see powerful life change!

High-Energy & Premium Activities

Meaningful experiences shouldn’t be boring. We want campers to make memories they’ll be talking about for the rest of their lives. That’s why we offer a wide variety of activities from zip lines, ropes courses, and water slides to cake decorating, laser tag, and hatchet throwing. Each experience is designed to help your group grow closer together as they grow closer to God in a fun-filled, engaging environment.

Cream-of-the-Crop Staff

Crossings summer staff is an energetic, authentic, relationship-driven team of college students. They are passionate about Christ and making Christ known to all campers. Team members go through a competitive application process; extensive background checks; in-depth interviews; and an intensive, pre-camp training that includes Bible study and evangelism instruction. Our staff is ready to have fun and build meaningful relationships with your students.

Cut through the Noise

We believe that making space to deliberately focus on your relationship with God creates the opportunity for powerful life change. That’s why we create an intentional environment where the normal distractions of daily life can be set aside.

Gospel-Saturated Week

We want every student to hear the gospel proclaimed, engage with God’s word, and experience Christ-centered worship. That’s why we deliberately infuse the gospel into every detail of your group’s experience.

A Week of True Transformations & Unforgettable Fun!

Camp Pastor: Anthony Knight view bio

Anthony Knight

Anthony Knight was born and raised in Nashville, TN where he found his love for sports. Football and fitting in with the athletic crowd were what he found his identity in. This led to a few years of walking in darkness before he was grabbed by the Lord at age 19 in his second year of college. As he played football for a small university in Lebanon TN, his passions for football began to dwindle as he became familiar with God’s Word. The more he read about God the more he wanted to share what he learned. This passion continued to increase as he began being mentored by Pastor Erik Reed, the pastor of the Journey Church, within walking distance from the University. Throughout the months of being mentored, he was offered an internship position at his church, which opened his eyes to teaching and preaching. After his internship, Anthony started a Young Adult ministry there to minister to the college age and young professionals in his area. He lead this ministry for approximately three years and now he is the Associate Pastor at the Journey Church Mt. Juliet Campus! When he is not assisting in leading this campus he is preaching at Discipleship Nows and Student Conferences/Camps, studying for his Masters of Divinity at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and being a husband and father to his wife and son.

Student Camp FAQs

How many adult leaders should I bring?

An important aspect in the ministry of Crossings is the relationships that students build with the adult leaders from their church. Crossings requests one adult for every five students (gender specific) in order to facilitate discipleship between students and adults that will extend beyond camp. As your students will be looking for guidance from the adults that come with your church, it is important that you bring adults who are at least 21-years-old, maturing Christians, and can be examples to your students and lead them spiritually.

What is the camp rate and what do the accommodations look like for adult leaders?

The camp rate will be the same for both students and adults. Your adult leaders will stay in the same accommodations as their students overnight. During POIs and recreation activities, we encourage leaders to hang out with their students. They may even participate in activities after every student has had their chance.

May adult leaders bring their young children?

Our facilities do not have accommodations for parents to bring children who are too young or too old to register for that camp session.

Can I get a refund if someone from my group drops out?

Registration deposits after February 28 are both non-refundable and non-transferable.

What is the dress code and are life jackets required?

Yes. Life jackets are required at all times. We ask that all students and adults dress modestly. For females and males, shorts need to be longer than fingertips when arm is extended down the side of leg. We do not allow spaghetti strap tank tops, any tops where undergarments can be seen, or any shirts with the sides cut out. Swimsuits must be one piece, no exceptions. For females, shorts must be worn over swimsuits at all times, even in the water. For both males and females, shirts must be worn at all times when walking to and from the lake/pool.

What about laundry, cell phone reception, and spending money?

There are no laundry facilities available on property, so bring enough clothes for your entire stay. Camp phones are available for your use if you do not have reception and need to make an emergency call. Lastly, students can purchase beverages, snacks, convenience items, books, and Crossings apparel at our Shack and General Store.

Do you have first aid? Where do we go if someone gets sick or injured?

We provide basic First Aid supplies and a First Aid Coordinator. More serious injuries can visit the closest hospital for medical help.

What if I have a student with food allergies?

If you have a student with food allergies, please make sure this is noted on their 2020 Crossings Medical Release Form. The staff will do everything to accommodate them and keep the kitchen staff aware of the student’s needs. Please advise your student to find a member of the kitchen staff to discuss their options during meal times. At Kids Camp, please send an Adult Leader with your student to the Food Service Director.

Does it cost extra to do the activities?

Crossings is an all-inclusive and any activity that your students, adult leaders, or you may want to participate in is already included in the registration price.

What time will my group arrive and leave camp?

Arrival times are on the first day of camp between 2:00 and 4:00 PM in 10-minute windows. You will be able to sign up for a window two weeks before camp when our hospitality staffer calls you. All student camp groups must depart by 9:00 am the last day of camp. Kids camp groups must depart by 10:30 am.

What age ranges can attend student camp?

Student camp is for students entering 6th grade through 12th grade.

What do I need to bring to camp?
