Exposure Youth Camp boosts teens

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — For Savannah Burns, Exposure Youth Camp means a place “where we go and really get a feel for how awesome heaven will be.
“It’s a boost, push, pull and shove toward the narrow path that we must all travel,” said Burns, a member of the Central Church of Christ in Augusta, Ga.
Jacob Smith, a member of the Austinville Church of Christ in Decatur, Ala., describes the four-day winter program as “a time of spiritual renewal, growth and encouragement … a joining together of Christians from a variety of backgrounds and areas at one location.”
The camp recently celebrated its 15th anniversary of strengthening and instructing young people. More than 1,700 teens from 100-plus Churches of Christ filled two Huntsville hotels. They came from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Participants broke into 36 teams and enjoyed group activities, devotionals and spiritual challenge sessions, said Brendan Chance, youth minister for the Austinville church.
Danielle Brown, a member of the Midway Church of Christ in Jasper, Ala., said she loved “The Atrium Singing.” That annual tradition involves campers gathering on the balconies outside their hotel rooms and singing praises to God.
“It was my first time hearing it like that,” Brown said, “and it was so powerful and beautiful.”
