Leader Details - Georgia Baptist Mission Board

Back to Impact Camp Website.


There are a lot of details and logistics that go into getting kids to camp and ensuring they have a fun, safe experience. This FAQ page attempts to address some of the most common questions and if you have a specific question, feel free to reach out to our team at 800-746-4422 x 234.

How do I register?

From the Impact Unite web page click register and follow the instructions. When you are asked how may TL’s or Team Leader you will be bring please know that the correct response is 1 TL or TL scholarship for every 6 students or part there of you are required to provide a TL.

Can drive my students to Impact? If the adults are training on campus how will my kids get to Impact?

This is a great question and one you will need to think about. TL, and that includes youth pastors, are required to be on campus for Gold School Sunday training. Someone beside the adults who are going to be on campus is required to drop off students. Impact has been operating for over 30 years and we know this is difficult, but it can be done. Please call if you would like help with some suggestions.

What makes Impact unique?

Impact Camp is built upon 10-12 person family groups that meet after each school and worship session to process the teachings on a practical level. This discipleship approach allows for truly uncommon growth in only five days.

What are “schools” at Impact Camp?

Impact is comprised of six different age-specific schools that stay together throughout each day’s activities. Each school is given a color (see below) that identifies the students throughout the day.

What are the colors? What color will my student be?

Each school is given a color based on the grade that students have finished. 6th Grade is Orange, 7th Grade is Red, 8th Grade is Blue, 9th Grade is Yellow, 10th Grade is Green, and 11th Grade/Graduates are Purple. Your students will want to bring clothes of their color for rec.

Will my group get to spend time together during the week?

Yes and No. Upon arrival, your students will be divided between different age-specific schools (see above) that spend the majority of their days together. At night, however, your students will sleep in rooms with other students from your group.

Where will my group be sleeping?

Students are housed together by church in the on-campus dorms in gender-specific halls. Adult Chaperones (Team Leaders) are housed together on-campus as well, though they all room separately from students.

What are Team Leaders (TLs)?

Every church is required to bring one adult for every six students registered. These chaperones, including the group leader, will serve as Team Leaders during the week. TLs are assigned a school, paired together (typically one female and one male) and given 8-10 students from their school to form a Family Group. TLs are required to arrive one day prior to students for our TL training during Gold Weekend (see below).

What is Gold Weekend? Is it required?

Gold Weekend is our required training for Team Leaders, beginning the Sunday afternoon prior to Impact (please check your email or registration for actual times) and continuing until students arrive on Monday. It is required for all chaperones/ Team Leaders– no exceptions. This is how we maintain the high-quality environment that promotes such rich spiritual growth at Impact. If you have leaders who cannot come up early for Gold Weekend, they cannot serve as Team Leaders. If you cannot provide Team Leaders your church is asked to purchase a “TL Scholarship” which may be purchased online or by calling the Impact office.

Will there be nurses on site?

Yes, Impact hires a team of nurses to oversee medication distribution during camp. Students are required to see the nurses during check-in to release all prescription medications to their oversight. No exceptions – students will be sent home if they do not turn in their prescribed medications.

What forms will I need to complete?

Upon registration, you will receive a link with instructions and forms. Be sure to complete them by the respective deadlines to avoid the late processing fee!

What should I bring?
