Southeastern Baptist Youth Camp has membership in Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA), an association of hundreds of camps, conference centers, and retreat centers located throughout the United States.
Membership links camp staff and board members with more than 7,000 peer professionals in Christian camping, and with the CCCA national office in Colorado Springs, which provides trend analysis and timely resources through dozens of practical services.
CCCA also sponsors numerous training events designed to promote excellence and expand the horizons of Christian camping leaders. The result of this connection is a group of members who stand better equipped in their task of shaping lives.
Most major denominations and church associations, as well as many nationally recognized youth and adult ministries, are represented in CCCA. About half of the member camps and conferences are independent organizations.
A CCCA survey published in 2007 revealed the scope of Christian camping’s unique impact. According to the research, CCCA member camps and conferences serve about 6.5 million people every year. Some 178,000 come to faith in Jesus Christ through these camp experiences, and an estimated 203,000 adults are now involved in full-time Christian work as the result of decisions made at CCCA member organizations. Over 117,000 churches in America are served by CCCA member organizations.
CCCA is a not-for-profit association incorporated in 1963. The largest of 17 similar entities worldwide, CCCA exists to proclaim the power and benefits of the Christian camp and conference experience, and to provide leaders at member organizations with ongoing encouragement, professional training, and timely resources.
