Welcome Letter

May 21, 2018

Warm Gulf Coast Greetings,

Hopefully all is well with you and your congregation as we prepare for another blessed summer of Gulf Coast Apostolic Youth Camps. Senior Camp will be July 23-26 with Brother PJ White of Bell Gardens, California and Brother Phil White of Burbank, California. For ages 8-12, Junior Camp will be July 30th-August 1st with Brother Talor Strain of Decatur, Alabama. We welcome all churches of the holiness, Apostolic faith to join us at the Acadian Baptist Center campground near Eunice, Louisiana. Reservations for the dormitories are available here for Sr. Camp and here for Jr. Camp. Late registration will begin July 1. Motel lodge, cabins, and RV spaces may be reserved by calling (337)855-3639.  (Special note- due to the high demand for the motel lodge rooms, there is a maximum limit of five rooms per church until June 1. Any remaining rooms may be purchased after that. Payment must be made in full to reserve rooms, and they are non-refundable.) New addition for 2018 – High Flying Zipline Adventure on Thursday, July 26!!  Cost is $10 per ride or $20 Mega-Pass for unlimited rides & front of the line access. Buy your passes early and get ready for a camp you will never forget. Last days of Senior and Junior camp will be Super Soaker Fun Days!

We encourage each Pastor to nominate and/or sponsor two students age 16+ for the Champions programs. Each participant will attend both camps and receive hands-on leadership training, engage in teamwork with motivated peers, and be challenged to become a Difference Maker in your church. All Champions will receive a shirt and attend the awards banquet on the final night of Junior Camp. Judging from the past camps, these are moments you do not want to miss!

Please be aware of the $100 clean-up deposit required from each church ($50 for those with five or less in dormitories.) Payment should be made separately to GCAYC and will be returned immediately after dorm inspection by camp representatives. 

We are believing for a blessed and productive Gulf Coast Camp, and look forward to seeing you. Please visit the website for registration, merchandise, and additional details. 

Kind regards,

Jon Hair
