June 13, 2022
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The summer of 2022 is a time to celebrate as thousands upon thousands of coaches and athletes look forward to a time of fun and fulfillment — both athletically and spiritually — as they flock to Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA, www.fca.org) Camps across America and around the world.
For the thousands of student-athletes who are attending FCA Camps across the nation and the globe this summer, the significant experience promises to be life-changing. FCA Camps allow coaches and athletes to participate in an exciting, inspiring, and healthy environment in which they can pursue their passion for sports — while also clearly seeing Christ’s passion for them.
“We are thrilled that our Camps this year are able to impact so many coaches, athletes, teams, and entire communities,” said Shane Williamson, FCA’s president and CEO. “FCA Camps provide a unique and remarkable opportunity for teams to truly unite in sport — and more importantly, to unite in fellowship with one another to honor and glorify our Savior, Jesus Christ.”
Added Williamson, “We at FCA want to be a part of helping to heal the next generation — and give them confidence and passion for their future. We believe fellowship is the field to our faith. We’ve seen a huge passion and outpouring of interest in people wanting to participate and to get into areas of opportunity where they can be in community and fellowship.”
FCA’s numbers and impact are impressive. FCA welcomed 57,613 coaches and athletes to its programs in the summer of 2021. These coaches and athletes attended 697 Camps all around the world.
Six different types of FCA Camps offer competitors the opportunity to reach their potential through athletic, spiritual, and leadership training, including Sports Camps (multi-sport and sport-specific camps); Leadership Camps (developing coaches and athletes to be leaders); Coaches Camps (designed to minister, equip, and encourage); Team Camps (allowing student-athletes to come together to compete); Power Camps (typically for athletes 8-12 years of age); and Partnership Camps (FCA partners with some of the best organizations).
Several Camps have already begun this year, while hundreds are set for June, July, and August. For more information about FCA Camps, click here.
FCA’s theme for 2022 is Every, based on Ephesians 1:3: “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.” FCAreminds Christian coaches and athletes that they already have everything they need in Christ and encourages them to seek Him both on and off the field.
