Arkansas's Pro-Life Youth Camp!
July 26-28, 2019!
Come to Camp Joshua and learn how to help bring down the walls of the culture of death! Enjoy dynamic speakers, hands-on experience, interactive games, great food, and new friends.
WHAT IS CAMP JOSHUA?
Arkansas Camp Joshua (ACJ) is a three-day camp designed to train high school students to be effective pro-life leaders. It covers all the basics of pro-life issues in classes and hands-on workshops. Not only will you leave the weekend ready to spread the pro-life message, you will also have a blast making new friends, visiting the State Capitol, playing interactive camps, enjoying good food, and other activities.
Arkansas Right to Life is proud to host Arkansas' only pro-life camp for teens. Camp Joshua's goal is to train the students so that upon graduation, the students will be equipped to confidently defend their pro-life views, enact pro-life efforts in their high school and community, as well as starting critical pro-life work on their high school and college campuses.
And in case you are wondering, Camp Joshua is not a "bible camp". Joshua is a model of a young leader that took action. Just as Joshua took down the walls of Jericho, the young men and women of Camp Joshua will lead their generation in bringing down the walls of the culture of death. They will be Joshua to our world in need.
