Camp

After 2 years of prayer and preparation, our new flagship summer event for college bound Christian teens, ReThink College Camp, will take place July 18-21, 2023 at Saint Louis University* in Saint Louis, MO!

Our fully realized ReThink College Camp will offer a limited number of serious students the chance to meet and learn from a diverse group of pastors, professors, authors, and Christian apologists! For 4 days and 3 nights, students will engage in impactful conversations, make strategic connections, and experience campus life at the oldest university west of the Mississippi River. 

What do Christians actually believe about Jesus, the Bible, the Church, the culture, etc? Why do we believe it? What makes it believable? How do we live it out and explain it to others, especially on campus? Why does this even matter?

These questions and more will be answered July 18-21, 2023. Registration is now open! Register before January 1, 2023 and save $50. 

*ReThink315 is not directly affiliated with Saint Louis University. Our board, staff, speakers, and partners all affirm the essentials of the historic Christian faith and adhere to historic Christian doctrines and traditional practices. Contact us directly, not St. Louis University  with questions or comments about this summer camp.

Endorsements...

"I travel and meet people in ministry around the world, and I can tell you that Jeremy Smith is a rare guy. He has a heart for the next generation, a love for the local church, and the experience to help people who love students to more effectively reach and disciple them. I expect great things from Jeremy and the team at ReThink315."

— Sean McDowell, Ph.D.
Author, Speaker, Associate Professor of Christian Apologetics at Biola University

 
"If you found out that 75% of your current customers left for a competitor, would that cause you to rethink your approach? Well, that’s how many young people leave the church, often because they don’t get adequate answers to their questions... I can’t recommend the ReThink315 team highly enough!"
 
— Frank Turek, Ph.D. 
Author, Speaker, Founder and President of CrossExamined.org

"Jeremy Smith has years of valuable experience in this critical area of preparing the next generation to stand firm in their faith. The challenges of an often hostile secular culture will only get stronger with time, so I’m thrilled to see Jeremy and his team form this exciting vision for attacking the challenges head-on!"

— Natasha Crain
Speaker and Author of three apologetics books for parents, including Talking with Your Kids about Jesus

"The mission of the church is clear: go and make disciples. We need to raise up a new generation of disciples who not only heed Christ’s call, but can do so with truth and love in a world that is desperate for both. And that’s why we need more organizations like ReThink315."

— Brett Kunkle
Author, Speaker, Founder and President of MAVEN
