FROM THE DIRECTOR
Super Summer Florida is a student ministry camp for Florida Baptists, by Florida Baptists. This camp is sponsored by the Florida Baptist State Convention, with funding provided by the Cooperative Program.
We look forward to partnering with you in providing a quality camp experience for students,
as well as offering an opportunity for churches to help their students grow in their walk with Jesus,
while growing closer together.
Fun will be had, relationships will be developed, but more importantly, we will make Jesus
the focus in all that we do!

CAMP AT A GLANCE
Each night we will gather together for a corporate worship time with the whole camp. The camp band will lead us in worship and our camp speaker will lead us into the Word on the camp theme.
One of our priorities is championing the local church, we want to give you the opportunity to invest in your students. During this time, you will be given a space to gather with your students to unpack the way the Lord is working in their lives during their time at camp. We offer materials to help facilitate this time.
Church Group Time
One of our trained staff members will engage everyone at camp in group Bible study each day. We provide age-specific Bible study materials that align with the camp theme.
Students will participate in different games with their Bible Study groups lead by a member of our trained camp staff, who also leads the Bible study. Each activity serves a specific purpose and is debriefed so students can make application in their lives.
During registration students will have the opportunity to pick activities they would like to participate in through out the week. Breakouts are created to give students the opportunity to participate in something with which they are familiar, or try something new! We offer creative, active, performance, and classroom-based activities during these times, and each breakout is led by a member of the Super Summer staff.
Students have the opportunity to choose how to spend their time with their "old" and "new" friends while participating in activities lead by a Super Summer Staffer through out the campus.
Each morning, students will have the opportunity to spend time with the Lord, working through a devotion we provide to reinforce the camp theme.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Super Summer Florida?
Super Summer Florida is a camp sponsored by the Florida Baptist Convention, with funding provided by the Cooperative Program. Super Summer Florida takes place each summer on the campus of Lake Yale Baptist Conference Center, in Leesburg, Florida. Super Summer serves campers who have completed 6th—12th grade.
How Do I Register?
Registration is completed through the office of the Florida Baptist Convention. The registration form is available on the website.
How Do I Cancel?
In general, you or your youth pastor can cancel a registration without penalty until a predetermined date. This date is indicated within the registration guidelines. After this date, a cancellation fee will be assessed. This fee helps us pay for any materials that have already been purchased by Super Summer for you. Eventually, there is a deadline date where we cannot accommodate any refunds to registration charges. Again, please see the registration page for these specific guidelines and dates.
Where Do I Go When Arriving On Campus?
At the beginning of each camp, every student and adult must go through the registration process. Registration is held at the Raintree Building. When you arrive in Lake Yale, follow the posted Super Summer signs and staffers, and they will help make sure you are in the right place. Our staffers will greet you and your students in the parking lost and help guide you to the right place.
What Can I Expect During Registration?
During registration, you and your students will be given their appropriate teaching assignment, name tag, curriculum, t-shirt, and room key (if you are assigned to the hotel). The process for getting your students all the things they need is fairly simple once you arrive on campus. Simply follow the signs, and be sure to ask any of our staffers if you need additional help or have questions.
I’ve Never Been to Lake Yale—How Do I Know Where Things Are?
If you are a youth pastor, when you visit the check-in table, you will have a staffer assigned to help you find your way around campus. Please make sure you indicate to us that you have never been to Super Summer before.
If you are a student, the best way is to find some our energetic camp staffers, or your fellow campers, and ask them where to go.
Where Will I Stay During Camp?
We hope you brought your tent. We have some nice camping spaces reserved just for you—just kidding. Every camp participant will be housed in one of Lake Yale’s hotel rooms or cabins. We have a piece of sophisticated computer software that houses each participant, in accordance with the rooms made available to us.
What Happens During Recreation and Do I Have to Participate?
Recreation is a vital piece of Super Summer, because it encourages team building and builds relationships in ways that no other activity can. Recreation is a series of team—building games designed to get students wet, dirty, and to have fun. Recreation is required for all students, except for those with medical disabilities. Adults are not require to participate but are required to be in attendance.
Do I Need to Bring Money to Super Summer?
Housing, curriculum, food, and your t-shirt are covered in the registration charges paid to Super Summer. However, if you wish to purchase items, such as the band’s merchandise, snacks, drinks, or other t-shirt, additional money will be required.
What are Super Summer's COVID-19 Policies?
As we look forward to Super Summer 2021, we want you to know that we will be working hard to provide safe and structured weeks for both kids and students, in the hope of encouraging the next generation in their walk with the Lord Jesus. Part of that effort will include monitoring and adapting to the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Working with Lake Yale and Lifeway camps, we will plan from a few general guidelines.
At a minimum, we will be performing the following steps.
1- We will abide by the policies of local authorities. We will adjust our capacities and procedures to accommodate at minimum what local authorities are requiring.
2- Train our staff on necessary preventative health and safety protocols, as well as a plan for handling symptoms or exposure identified at camp.
3- Perform daily health screenings and temperature checks on staff members, requiring anyone not feeling well to seek medical attention and be quarantined, if becoming ill.
4- Provide necessary supplies for common/shared spaces including but not limited to hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, disinfectant cleaner, extra face masks, etc.
5- Perform routine cleaning on a daily basis, in addition to those services provided by our location contacts to all meeting spaces and all equipment and supplies used.
6- Make adjustments to our schedule and programming in an effort to ensure a safe and healthy camp environment. We are evaluating our schedule to accommodate possible reduced capacities and social distancing. We are also evaluating all areas of programming to make sure activities are appropriately social distanced, without contact and using single use or easily sanitized items.
At a minimum, we will ask all campers (students/kids/adults) to abide by the following guidelines.
1- Pass a simple questionnaire and temperature check before leaving for camp, upon arriving to camp, and on a daily basis during the camp session.
2- Whenever possible, maintain social distancing (at least 6’) from other individuals.
3- Be respectful and intentional about protecting your own health and that of others.
4- Engage in enhanced hygiene practices such as regular hand washing and use of hand sanitizer.
5- Comply with staff member instructions and requests related to the expectations above.
