Groups are also placed on a color team to build a little competition throughout the week with all sorts of activities including game time, bible study, missions, verses and lots of surprises!
Where are we?
DLC is at the beautiful Ft. Bluff Camp on top of Dayton Mountain in Dayton TN. Up on the mountain, is some of the most beautiful scenery and magestic landscapes. Ft. Bluff is the home of NACA and is equiped with beatiful facilities, a lake with a blob and iceburg, pool, putt putt, fishing, waterslide and a full size gym. Your student spends seven days on this mountain enjoying God's handiwork while growing in the Lord.
What are We?
Dixieland Leadership Camp was established in 2006 by a board of counselors who wanted to continue the legacy and design of Awana Scholarship Camp. For more than 60 years, Awana has been reaching children and youth around the world for Christ. One of the ways we continue to reach and develop youth to lead the next generation for Christ is through Dixieland Leadership Camp. DLC is no longer just for AWANA clubbers. Our camp is now open to Christian/Bible Believing students from all over the United States. Seven Days of an amazing experience, quite possibly the most exciting week of their lives!
What are the counselors like?
Our carefully screened and hand-picked adult counselors love kids and have several years experience working with kids. They are AWANA Commanders, Directors, & Leaders, some even Citation achievers who love The Lord and understand the level of importance God's Word plays in the lives of our young people. Some of them are past campers who return to give back to the camp that helped shape their Christian Walk. Now you have one of the greatest environments in the world for your kids to spend a whole week!
What do we do all week?
More Fun than they can handle! From Game time activities, personal devotions, free time, swimming, gaga ball, putt putt, the Blob!, water slide, even fishing if you wish. Some beautiful views can be seen as well! Three Square Meals a day. A little healthy competition. Their week will include Bible classes and chapel services designed just for young people. Personal workbooks assist in studying and applying God's Word. This will, without a doubt, be one of the greatest opportunities of the year for your child or teenager! In addition, all our High School campers will get valuable ministry tools training and experiences reserved only for them.
