AWA (formerly "SYC") is short for "A Week Away." Our summer camp's main concern is getting students "a week away" from distractions and hindrances to focus on Jesus Christ. This 5 day camp is an evangelistic and discipleship outreach for students to plug into and get real with Jesus in their lives.


AWA17 is JULY 3rd-7th

Special guest - DANGER SCENE

Danger Scene was born with a common goal. Make music, impact lives for good, and follow your dreams. 

“Music is what we love. It was never a question of whether or not to play music. This is the way God has given us to love on others and be the example we want others to see…so we started this project and with God’s help, we are going to take it to the top."

Danger Scene will be rocking our Late Night at AWA17!

Location - Laguna Christian Beach Retreat

Laguna Beach Christian Retreat is a resort located in Panama City Beach, Florida, for Christian groups and families. The facility is located on the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico on the west end of the beach. This is a quiet, uncrowded area of the beach which helps to provide the proper spiritual climate for ministry.

Their goal in ministry is to promote an atmosphere of personal attention and Christian love and to serve Christian leadership in any way, so that young and old may mature in Christ.
