I loved camp so very much, coming from being the only girl on my schools team it was so amazing to see
so many girls investing their time into the sport and it was really empowering. I cannot wait to go to camp
next year! Asides from the wrestling it was incredible to see so many teenagers gathered to worship it truly
was amazingly beautiful and I personally have been close with Christ for a few years now, but I talked to a
few girls who gave themselves to Christ during camp and just hearing the way thatthe camp inspired
them to do so was amazing. Thank you so very much for putting in such an amazing effort into the camps!!

Thank you so much for camp! It was amazing 😊 I am so happy to have gone and thank you
so much for telling me about it

I truly feel that I was able to connect with God and see him through a whole new
light. The camp experience was amazing

I think I can speak for our entire wrestling team that we genuinely enjoyed it so
much and will be coming back next year! Thank you.

I thank God for His continued Mercy and Grace in my life. It is always a blessing for me when
believers at camp, share their testimonies how God has been working in their lives. I pray that our
coaches and our athletes’ hearts are ready to receive Jesus before, during and after camp 😁

We had more girl campers this year from last year, thank God for the growth and I hope for more next year.

FCA Girls wrestling camp helped me learn more about trusting God while wrestling!

I thought the atmosphere of the people and the camp was just wonderful

I had a particularly good experience! I loved the services and it helped me to implicate my faith
into my sport and daily life more. Our huddle leader was great and help me on the mat and
with my faith. Thank you! I will pray for you as well.

I had a wonderful time at camp and an experience I will never forget! I will be a senior this
coming school year and was wondering if I would be eligible to come as a huddle leader?

I had a wonderful time at camp and got even closer to Jesus. Thank you for having me
it was fun getting to meet new people who all had a passion for the same thing.

I honestly cannot brag enough about our clinicians, huddle leaders
and camp staff.. They brought an atmosphere of leadership, integrity and
an authentic desire to pour into our camp participants. I am so very grateful
for all of our investors, staff, parents, athletes, coaches and volunteers.
This all was able to happen because of you!
THANK YOU!

 

WOW – I am just so incredibly thankful for how the Lord blessed this very special camp.

Lives were touched and the girls cannot wait to come back next year.!!!!

*I know it’s late but God is working. She has been in our room for 2 hours talking about God and life!

I asked her what the best part of the camp was and she said chapel.  You are doing what God called and it’s so worth it! It’s been 5 months since she even walked in here to talk –but tonight it is prayers answered and it’s like I got my little girl back!!! My son rededicated last weekend and my daughter this week because of FCA wrestling and of course God! – Marcus

* Thank you for all this ministry does and the outpouring of love to the Wrestlers!  They are truly blessed to have this ministry!  Such an amazing time -The Littles

* Thank you for everything!  What an amazing day!  We watched facing the Giants on the way home. Nothing is impossible for God!  The Girls Camp was an answered prayer for us. -Coach Pinkney

* I just want to Thank You and your staff for an amazing girl’s wrestling camp this past weekend at Emmanuel.

My daughter just started wrestling a few months ago and was very nervous about attending the camp.

She had a wonderful time and can’t wait until next year. I appreciate all that you and your staff do and did to make her and the other girls feel at home.  Suzanne
