Camp Amplify Summer Camp
Learn about what takes place at Camp Amplify…and why!
Raising leaders and sharing Jesus through a continuing commitment to children in underserved communities by providing camps filled with family, food, and fun.
What sort of great activities do our campers get to enjoy at Camp Amplify? Rather than try to list out all the fun, we invite you to watch these video overviews from last year’s Camp Amplify summer camp. We think you will agree that this is a truly fun and unique summer camp experience!
What to bring
Below is a list of items your camper will need to pack when attending Camp Amplify:
Our Camp Model – Community Partners
Camp Amplify works in partnership with local social organizations to help identify potential campers in the 7-12 year old range. Typically, these local community partners are Boys and Girls Clubs, local schools, churches, or other civic organizations. Our community partners are the responsible party who bring their campers to Camp Amplify.
Our local partners are also expected to accompany their campers at Camp Amplify. They are familiar faces during our camp, yet we rely on our community partners for very little during camp. This provides a great opportunity to “recharge their batteries” in a fun setting. In fact, it has been our experience that our partners receive much needed ministry as well.
After camp is over, the relationship between the community partners and our campers is expected to continue and deepen, providing much needed followup discipleship. Camp Amplify staff remain in touch with our community partners as well. These ongoing relationships help to extend and deepen the impact of Camp Amplify throughout the year.
Camp Amplify Worship Leader – Steventhen Holland
We are honored and blessed to have the passionate and talented Steventhen Holland leading our campers in worship at Camp Amplify. Steventhen Holland is an Author, Recording Artist, passionate Worship Leader, motivational Speaker, national Pro-Life speaker and founder of Broken Not Dead Ministries, a Non-Profit 501(c3)!
Steventhen obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree, in Student Ministry, from King University in Bristol, TN in 2005, where he also played baseball.
He is a Nashville recording artist! He recorded his first EP entitled, Broken Not Dead, which released in September of 2017 and is expecting to release new music in 2019.
He is the author of a book entitled, The Journey: Brokenness to Wholeness, in which he shares his amazing story. His life is the result of the gang-rape of an eighteen-year-old mentally challenged young woman. Incredibly, despite his mother’s lack of intellectual ability, homelessness, and a society that was constantly pressuring her to abort him, he survived. However, his mother couldn’t care for him and placed him in foster care, where he was later adopted. He wouldn’t be reunited with his birth mother for over twenty-seven years.
Despite the brokenness he has experienced, he travels the country, with his ministry Broken Not Dead, sharing a message of HOPE and RESTORATION for the BROKEN! Steventhen has ministered at many events around the country over the last 15+ years, delivering this powerful message! Some of these events include: church services, men & women’s retreats, student camps/retreats, school assemblies, juvenile detention centers, mentoring programs, abstinence education programs, children’s homes, drug & rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, mental health facilities, pregnancy care center banquets, and more…

This past July, The Tarvers invited youth from my Boys & Girls Club to attend their week-long summer camp, Camp Amplify. We were new to the summer camp experience, so were unsure what exactly to expect. Our children and staff were met with so much love and support, and that love and support has extended well past that week of camp.
