Our Story S. Truett Cathy of Chick-fil-A founded WinShape Camps in 1985 with the hopes of creating a camp experience that went just a little deeper. Since then, WinShape Camps continues to shape young people through awesome camp experiences

In 2007, WinShape Camps partnered with Connect Ministries to help take the WinShape Camps experience to communities all over the nation through WinShape Camps C3 Day Camps. WinShape Camps C3 combines sports, recreation, arts, bible study and worship into an unforgettable week in local churches and communities. Summer 2011 will bring the first-ever WinShape Camps One Week Overnight Camp for Girls at Young Harris College. Located at the base of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Young Harris College promises to provide all of the same life-changing adventures campers have experienced at Berry College for years; only in a brand new setting for WinShape Camps. At the core of WinShape Camps is the relentless pursuit of providing a camp environment that challenges campers to sharpen their character and deepen their Christian faith and relationships.

Staff Developme


i2i: Play. See. Become.

With so many voices trying to tell us who we are and what our lives should be about, it’s easy to forget what God says about us. And yet, His voice, His eyes, and His touch are what really matters. So join us in 2011 as we stand eye to eye with God and discover who we really are. Come and play and find that the One who knows you better than anyone here on earth loves you and values you more than you could ever imagine. Come hear God speak into your life. Come feel God’s touch on your heart. Come look into God’s eyes and see how much He cares. Come talk face to face with God like you would talk with a friend. And as you do, come uncover who you could be as His child. It’s game time! Will you play?

2011 Summer Theme

Let’s play a game. This isn’t just any game. It’s a game about life. It’s a game about you. It’s a game that brings each of us to a faceoff. Only we’re not just facing off with another player. In this game we’re facing off with ourselves. It’s a game we call i2i.

Gamers wanted.

Theme passage: Exodus 33:11a “The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks with his friend.” 3

However, everyone knows that the Holidays are most enjoyed when everyone is in WinShape-appropriate attire, so pack accordingly.

We’ll teach all you need to know to dance with the stars.

Half way through the session, WinShape is going to see all of the holidays that happen throughout the year come to life! Snowballs will fly, volleyballs will bounce, leaves will fall, and eggs will be hunted as we all gather for a fun filled night. From Christmas to Easter, even the 4th of July, you name it and we’re sure it will be celebrated. With these holidays comes a host of fun and festive activities, games, and of course food. Come join us as we journey through the seasons at our campwide Holiday Mash-Up.
