Building Youth Groups

For more information
please call Christa at (919) 552-9421

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.

2021 BYG Dates for Spring Day Events:

  • April 10
  • April 24

2021 BYG Dates for Fall Weekend Event:

  • October 15-17

Let us help you grow the bonds with the 6th - 8th graders in your group even BYG-er as you play in the woods of Agapé middle-school style!

Experience all the fun of a BYG event and more! Groups may take longer hikes, camp at the Outpost, and try out the low-ropes course.

BYG-er Dates for 2021:

  • March 12-14
