Building Youth Groups

Agapé † Kure Beach Ministries' goal is to keep your youth group strong and growing by laying a foundation for its future members - the 3rd thru 5th graders at your church!

Often when children are old enough to attend a traditional youth group, they have already committed to other activities . . . leaving your church with only one half, one third, or even one quarter of the church's children attending regularly.

Bring your elementary age kids to Camp Agapé for BYG, a fun community building camp experience. Because most BYG events are made up of groups from several churches, your group will have fun interacting with others during different camp activities like canoeing, crafts, hiking, etc.
