About FFC Student Ministries

Student Ministries at Friendswood Friends Church looks a little bit different than it did before the pandemic. Thankfully, nothing can stop us from worshiping God in new and creative ways. We trust these “new and creative ways” are just as spiritually formative as other faithful acts of worship in the past. The outward activities look different, but the inward reality and intention are the same: we’re learning how to faithfully love God and our neighbors (Matthew 22:35-40; Mark 12:28-34; Luke 10:25-28).

Registration Instructions: Follow these step-by-step instructions to easily register your camper. 

  1. Click the link above. 
  2. Click the green “tickets” button. Don’t be thrown off by the dates and cost; our costs and dates are different. 
  3. Click the pay by invoice drop-down button. Using pay by invoice avoids the credit card fee and allows you to send a check to the church for the correct amount all at once.  
  4. Select how many tickets you want. Registering one kid = one ticket. Two kids = two tickets. 
  5. Click the orange “checkout” button and proceed to the personal information form. 
  6. Fill out the form. 
  7. Select pay by invoice once again at the bottom. 
  8. You’ll receive an email verifying your registration. 
Scholarships: If your student has attended camp in previous years, they can receive a half-off scholarship by inviting a first-time camper. The first-time camper they invite will also receive half off. Siblings aren’t eligible for this scholarship. Different scholarships are available for families sending multiple children. Contact me if you have any questions about scholarships.

T-Shirt Promotion: The first 15 students to register for camp will receive an additional t-shirt. Hurry up and register!
