Community Initiative week hosted by Amazing Grace Baptist Camp provides a one week intensive camp program customized for the local residents of Franklin and Douglas counties. AGBC along with local partnering businesses will offer a week of camp to adolescents for the sole purpose of growing them as individuals. The week of camp will consist of leadership development through character building and personal counseling. At a time when America is facing a youth crisis in depression, suicide, bullying, and drug abuse it’s time for our community to stand out as a people that will change the epidemic and invest in our young people for guidance. Partner with us to make a lasting impact that will improve our community for good in the years to come.
