Truett Nation

Become part of something greater.


Our Youth Camp is full of amazing things to do all week. Campers will have a multitude of options for recreation, service projects, and ways to bond with each other. The week culminates in a white water rafting experience that will be talked about for months!


The youth camps are limited to 150 people. This creates an atmosphere conducive to developing friendships, intentional mentoring, and developing a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ.  


Truett is passionate about providing a phenomenal experience in every aspect of camp. We ascribe to a philosophy of organization, preparation, cleanliness, and safety. Our staff are carefully chosen to embody the qualities of Christ and receive great training.

It is evident the heart of those working in this space is centered on the will of God. I appreciate the presentation of the Gospel on Day 1 and for the frequent opportunity for guided small group discussion.

The first part of being prepared is being informed! 

Here are some answers to our most commonly asked questions.  

Do we get to bring our own chaperones?

Yes! We recommend a counselor for every seven students. They get to enjoy all the activities, meals, service projects, messages, and worship alongside the students! The cost is only $350 per chaperone, which is the same as the student price.

What are the accommodations like?

We have excellent bunkhouses with two private bathrooms per bunkhouse, mini-split HVAC units, thick inner-spring mattresses, carpet, and tiled bathrooms. The rooms have 12-16 beds.

What steps are taken to ensure safety?

All staff and volunteers undergo a background check. During staff training, counselors are trained in basic first aid and situational awareness to prevent incidents. The camp has volunteer medical professionals who manage medication and camper wellness.  Staff are trained to facilitate recreation. Any water activities are supervised by American Red Cross certified lifeguards. Also, the camp is inspected on an annual basis. Since 2020 Truett has received a 100 health and safety rating from the NC Department of Health & Safety.

What should we bring to camp?

Campers should bring their own bedding (twin-sized bunks), toiletries, clothes, and Bible.

If they have any medication, whether over the counter or prescription, they must turn those in at check-in in a 1-gallon Ziploc bag with the camper’s name clearly labeled.

We highly recommend bringing two pairs of shoes, a reusable water bottle, sunscreen, and clothes that are suitable for work projects (which could include painting, landscaping, etc.).

For the white water rafting trip we recommend sandals with a heel strap, swimwear, a towel, and a small bag with a change of clothes.

Can people with a developmental disability be successful at camp?

Our heart is to minister to as many people as possible, but we do have realistic limits to our facilities. If a child is interested in attending camp, who may require special accommodations, please contact us. We encourage parents to have a conversation with the Summer Camp Coordinator to see if the individual can have a positive experience.
