Hosting a Sports Crusader sports camp at your church or community is a great way to reach the children in your area. We offer skill-enhancing camps in five sporting endeavors: basketball, soccer, cheerleading, baseball/softball, and volleyball. The camps are comparable in quality and content of those offered by college programs. Each camp is led by a team of qualified Christian coaches who are dedicated to helping young people grow in their sport, as well as in their walk with God. We spend time with the children each day in a ‘half time’, helping the children learn to apply God’s Word to their sports and their lives. Most importantly, we present them with the gospel message of Jesus Christ at every camp and give them the opportunity to accept Him as their Lord and Savior

How does a Sports Crusaders Camp Work?

After a church or community has booked a Sports Crusaders team to come to their location, they promote and prepare for the camp. When the team of college student athletes arrives, they will conduct a quality sports camp, focusing on the fundamentals of their sport and their faith in Jesus Christ.

Why are Sports Crusaders Camps so effective?

Sports Crusaders Camps are so effective because God is so good to us. “Since through God’s mercy that we have this ministry”—2 Corinthians 4:1. God began this ministry as a dream and a promise through the faith of Bobby Shows. We continue this ministry based on faith and prayer, and we share the gospel boldly wherever we go. We try to model Jesus in our ministry, by serving each child and each host church personally and with love. It is Christ’s love which unites us, and His spirit which gives us power.
