Ci 3.0 Recruiting
This was our busiest fall yet as we conducted 3 Mini Camps @ the Creation Museum and 3 Robotics Workshops in FL and SC. Here are a few photos highlighting these events.

Ci Expands on Social Media
Each new camp season begins with building the Summer Team. This involves contacting past team members as well as recruiting at several colleges. This fall we've visited Bob Jones University (SC), Cedarville University (OH), North Greenville University (SC), Anderson University (SC). So far we have received 15 initial applications and 9 final apps. Please pray as we consider who the Lord would have us invite to assist us in carrying out our mission with our campers. We are in need of several more young men. If you know of any who would be a good fit for Ci, please direct them to http://campinfinity.com/apply
Enjoyed meeting David Denning's sister at Anderson University in SC. David was a member of our Ci 2.0 Summer Team. Always nice to connect with family everywhere we go. Charlie is a natural draw for a STEM camp as seen above by the young children who are intrigued by his moves during one of our team recruiting trips.
Ci 3.0 Drone Activity (exciting camp announcement)
One of our camp director's personal joys is to be on the look out for new technologies we can integrate with our STEM activities. We desire to teach young people a biblical perspective on why God gives man the ability to invent things and what is our responsibility. Recently we obtained a drone to be used this summer @ Ci. With all the buzz about drones and rights and safety, the FAA has done extensive research to determine at what weight a drone falling out of the sky is hazardous to life. We will explore the science, technology, engineering and math behind drones as well as discuss the biblical role of Christians within a culture as new technologies give us new choices.
Ci Community Outreach
Recently, a few of our campers had the opportunity to share their experience with robots at a senior citizen's home. These seniors really enjoyed seeing the robots and hearing how Camp Infinity has impacted young people as they've learned a biblical worldview of technology.
How does the most unique camp in America get the word out? On social media! We are therefore very pleased to announce the addition to our growing Ci Team. Jason Goff, social media manager for the Creation Museum, is now partnering with us to manage our expansion on social media. As you will see below in Ci by the Numbers, through Jason's experience and direction, Ci has expanded to Instagram and Twitter. He has also increased our presence on Facebook.
It is hard to believe we are entering our third year of camp! The results are strong that we've built something that resonates with Christian families who have children that love science, technology, engineering and math and desire that they be taught from a young earth creation worldview.
Having just opened our online applications for our Ci 3.0 Summer Camps, it is now time to focus on connecting with those the Lord might have partner with us to provide much needed scholarships for families who need some help with the higher than normal camp investment for their child. Last year 67% of our campers received some level of scholarship from our Scholarship Fund.
We have scheduled 6 weeks of camp this summer with the goal of reaching 240 campers. In order to provide 70% with an average of $200 in scholarship we need to raise $33,600.
Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us to assist a young person to attend who might not otherwise be able to attend one of our camps? Camp Infinity will inspire them to discover wonder and amazement in everything they see in the world around them and will teach them to face each day with an insatiable curiosity that drives them into a closer relationship with the Infinite One who created it all.
If you would like to help us reach our scholarship goal of $33,600, please donate to our Scholarship Donation Fund
