This summer, Lipscomb Athletics Spiritual Formation will partner with Carpenter’s Square and Christ for the Nations Church to offer local seven through 11-year-olds who desire to learn and play multiple sports in a positive, high energy environment, the opportunity to participate in the inaugural Nashville All-Sports camp, June 25-29. Sports featured in the camp include volleyball, wiffle ball, basketball, soccer, flag-football, track and field and extreme games.
Led by Lipscomb student-athletes who have been chosen by their character, ability to teach, positive attitude and passion, the Nashville All-Sports camp will also feature intentional Bible curriculum where university student-athletes will encourage and care for each camper.
The Nashville All-Sports camp will be held at Carpenter’s Square, a collaborative fellowship bringing ministries together to more effectively share the love of Jesus, in the Kyle Hutchison Center off of Nolensville Road. The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from June 25-28 and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on June 29. The cost of this camp is $200 per camper and includes lunch daily, camp t-shirt, team picture, and memories for a lifetime. Families are also encouraged to attend a free celebratory picnic lunch, hosted by Christ for the Nations Church, on Friday, June 29 at noon.
“This is an incredible opportunity and platform to deepen the impact of sports ministry,” said Chris Klotz, director of spiritual formation within Lipscomb Athletics. “Not only will the university student–athletes experience a new context of integrating faith and sport, but the main heartbeat is for campers to have the best week of their lives and for them to experience the true living God through the environment of sports.”
Carpenter’s Square community outreach coordinator Joe Hemphill said, “We are so excited to partner with Lipscomb Athletics for the All-Sports Summer Camp! What an awesome opportunity to connect with the community using the vehicle of sports. This is going to be an amazing week filled with the love of Jesus Christ!”
Since 2017, Lipscomb Athletics has partnered with Carpenter’s Square and Christ for the Nations Church to serve local refugee families and communities. Klotz says local families can also invest in Nashville’s refugee communities by funding a scholarship for refugee students to attend camp as well.
“Over the past year, we have partnered with Carpenter’s Square and Nations Church to invest in the local refugee community, and one goal of this camp is to invite families to provide scholarships exclusively for children in the refugee community to attend camp. We want these students to have the opportunity to hear and see the Gospel, and without the scholarship fund, many of these students would not be able to attend and build these lifelong memories.”
