Spectacular is a camp dedicated to creating a safe, Christ-centered community where teens can discover God, their inherent worth, and share their giftedness.  SPEC is for teens who have completed grades 9-12.

During Spectacular approximately 1,100 campers and their leaders gather at Graceland University in Lamoni, Iowa for the largest annual gathering of youth in Community of Christ. All campers have the opportunity to participate in leadership and discipleship development, diverse worship, and expression of arts, music, and sports.

During the week campers can look forward to sharing in all avenues of the SPEC experience: service projects, communication workshops, basketball, musical instruction, table tennis, stage production, worship, delegation devotions, volleyball, tie-dying, cotton candy, discussions about dating and relationships, learning more about our Creator, soccer, and much, much more.

Cost: $430/youth
There is a $50 discount for first-time friends and siblings!
