New Life Camp
Students! Don’t miss out on one of the best weekends of the year!
Spend a few days with other students enjoying worship gatherings, small groups, field games, and lots of fun! META is going to going to look different this year due to COVID-19 restrictions. We’ve added a What To Expect section below to help navigate you through all the details.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Providence Baptist Church will follow guidelines and expectations provided by New Life Camp due to concerns related to COVID-19. New Life Camp is guided by the Center for Disease Control, the American Camping Association, and the North Carolina Health Department.
META will not be a wise choice for students with high risks, nor students that have family members with high risks.

Cabin Grouping and Social Distancing
