During these three camps, CCC housed over 500 campers, coaches, and staff.

“Our camps this summer have been a huge success,” said athletic director, James Whitaker. “We have had an amazing group of campers all three weeks. Our coaches do a phenomenal job teaching them the fundamentals of the game, but also use their sport to challenge them in their relationship with God.”

At the beginning of each camp week, athletes were divided into teams or played on their respective school teams. Each camp is specifically designed to foster team play, encourage sportsmanship, instruct in basic sport rules and regulations, prepare for upcoming athletic seasons, and host healthy competition.

Coach Debbie Lawson, from Clermont, FL has attended the women’s volleyball camp as a coach for over 10 years. She said, “It is not only because of the great volleyball instruction and competition that we come back every year, but also the solid spiritual emphasis this camp provides.”

A closing ceremony and awards presentation was held at the end of each week for athletes, coaches, parents, and friends. Teams were presented awards based upon their exhibition and character during the week. Individual awards were also given to specific athletes based upon their performance.
