This year unlike any other, North Mississippi FCA will be partnering with Northeast Arkansas to cooperatively host our annual Mini-Camp. This year we will be traveling to the beautiful Camp Bethesa in Batesville, Arkansas on September 26-27, 2009. To enroll is this year's Mini-Camp, athletes are asked to register with their FCA huddle sponsor at their school. All the huddle coaches of the schools in District 2 Mississippi have received the needed registration information.
Mini-Camp is a weekend retreat for high school athletes and coaches, which has been hosted locally and now is open to all FCA athletes in North Mississippi. Camp Lake Stephens in Oxford, MS had provided the beautiful backdrop for this event since its establishment in 2005.
At Mini-Camp high school athletes are lead through competition and small group Bible studies by college huddle leaders. These huddle leaders come from all across the state to invest, mentor, and be a positive influence in the lives of these younger athletes. All our college huddle leaders are trained to lead their huddle with a Christ like attitude and to point their huddle members towards attaining or developing their own personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
To interact with rival schools and athletes in their huddles
Great housing and meals
Small group attention and supervision
Biblical teaching and instruction
Mini-Camp would not be possible without our local coaches. Coaches who have a heart for the Lord help us to recruit, as well as, supervise our campers on site. Through serving, helping officiate competition, in some instances providing transportation, and being positive role models to their athletes our volunteer coaches are a vital part of what make Mini-Camp run!
