Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2023
at Bridgeport Camp
Our Confirmation Connection is a retreat-style confirmation camp in the North Texas Conference that partners with local UMC churches to provide a connectional confirmation experience. This camp happens at Bridgeport Camp and Conference Center, in Bridgeport, Texas.
Our retreat works well as a confirmation kick-off event, mid-way point or closing retreat based on when your church begins and ends confirmation. It can also act as a confirmation program for churches that don't currently have something to offer their students.
Camp begins on Friday night and ends on Sunday morning. During the camp our confirmands will be led through five different lessons: What is theology, Old and New Testament, What does it mean to be United Methodist, Sacraments and Communion and Baptism and Vows. Our goal is to give a broad overview of the basics of confirmation. This content fits well in any confirmation curriculum our churches might be using.
Along with the lessons, our campers can expect fun games and activities along with other camp favorites like S’mores! While the focus of our camp is to get through the lessons, we also work hard to make sure that campers have a good time. One of our campers’ favorite parts of camp is the fact that we mix and match our small groups with confirmands from other churches.
Cost is $110 ($135 Late Registration) for each confirmand and adult. We do have a small amount of scholarship money available for churches that need help paying for their adults. We are also offering a 50% discount on Bishop's Rally registration for churches that attend our Confirmation Retreat.
