Here is info about Loucon, our Christian Camp and the Pursuit program we've developed;
The Why…Loucon wants every camper who enters our gates to know God & to experience the life He made them for.
The Strategy: Loucon is God Centered, Neighbor driven, and Growth Focused!
Our staff and counselors strive to Share the Love & Message of Jesus Christ!
What Christian Camping Does: It Kindles Christian Community, Makes Disciples, and Develops Leaders.
The Pursuit is one high school program we’ve created to help campers deepen their understanding, grow in their faith, and become leaders. It is a way to help them seek God in order to better know God, in order to find God!
The Pursuit, Loucon’s Leadership Development Program
God utilizes Loucon to help develop Christian leaders. One of the ways we make that happen is through our Pursuit program. We provide several specialized camps throughout the summer. These camps are more challenging. They are geared towards helping our senior high school campers go even deeper in their faith and to
foster more intentional growth as leaders. A camper may choose to attend multiple Pursuit camps at a reduced cost, or they may choose to participate in one per summer. There is a 15% discount on each additional Pursuit camp you attend. The courses may be taken in any order. Loucon’s Pursuit camps include; Alpha Camp, Leadership Camp, Evangelism Camp, and a Discipleship track that is only offered during the Senior High Summit. All of these camps
will provide opportunities for campers to help lead and guide some of the other campers attending camp during the same week. Each of these camps will be capped at 20 participants. The Pursuit is based on Jeremiah 29:13, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” These camps are geared to help campers pursue God!
Pursuit Camp # 1, Alpha Camp
Alpha camp deals with the essential questions of life, such as: Who is Jesus, How can I be sure of my faith? How does God guide me? How can I resist evil? What does the Holy Spirit do? And How can I make the most of my life? It is designed to be approachable, relevant, and thought provoking. It is based around a video series that will help campers begin to wrestle with these questions and start seeking real answers together in the truth of the Gospel.
The Alpha course is a worldwide phenomenon. It’s found in over 169 countries. It has given over 19.6 million people the opportunity to explore the meaning of life. Perhaps it’s just what you need! This camp is a way to go deeper
in your faith while also ensuring that you understand the very basis and core of our faith in Christ.
Alpha Course June 14-19
Pursuit Camp #2, Discipleship Track (part of Senior High Summit)
Campers who choose this track during the Senior High Summit Camp can expect to spend two hours each day deepening their relationship with Christ through intensive Bible study sessions and group discussions. This
track is perfect for those who feel strong in their faith but want to deeper. This is about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus!

Pursuit Camp# 3, Leadership Camp
This is for campers looking for a safe place to discover, reflect upon, and develop their leadership skills in ministry. During this 6-day, 5 night camp, our campers will attend multiple sessions intended for training and implementation of the leadership skills needed in ministry. As always, campers can expect to have fun doing many of the activities
they’ve come to love over the years at Loucon, including high ropes, dangle duo, rappelling, ziplining, climbing, low elements, and many more!
Leadership Camp June 5-10
Pursuit Camp # 4, Evangelism Camp
Campers are challenged to live out the Great Commission in this 6-day, 5 night camp. Campers who already have a faith of their own learn how to share that faith through sessions on practical ministry ideas, spirit driven worships, and the opportunity to present the Gospel throughout the week. Campers participate in all activities offered to Senior high campers including high ropes, dangle duo, ziplining, rappelling, climbing, low elements, as well as crafts, campfires,
folk dancing, and games with staff. Campers come away from this camp with not only a supportive community, but a stronger faith and greater ability to live it out.
Evangelism Camp June 12-17
