Camp Directors

Each NEXT Summer Camp is headed up by a PCC staff or faculty member. These dedicated and caring individuals bring decades of combined experience in their respective fields to camp, and will make sure this summer is one you never forget!

College Student Staff

College student staff

The NEXT Summer Camps staff also includes a dedicated group of Pensacola Christian College students. They work together to serve and inspire you. And they have one goal—to make this your best summer ever.

From the opening of camp on Monday to the closing events, the staff will be available to mentor, guide, and encourage you.

They’ll lead you in competitions and games and help you grow in your faith through nightly cabin devotions.

“My most memorable experience was leading someone to the Lord for the first time. That same week, I was able to lead three more girls to the Lord. There was nothing like seeing the instant change and hope in their faces once making that decision.”
