Fort Guts has been in operation since 2008 and is a seasonal campground hosted and maintained by Guts Church.
The Mission Statement of Fort Guts is to help develop the core of youth churches into thriving groups of teens hungry to seek God using life-giving experiences that they can’t get anywhere else.
At Fort Guts, we provide your youth group opportunities to grow closer to God without the distractions of television, internet, Facebook and Twitter. Fort Guts is a life-changing summer camp of Guts Church on an impressive lakeside property.
Every day there are morning devotions and impacting evening services filled with awesome times of worship and the Word of God taught by spirit-filled, trained leaders from Guts Church. These services create an environment where young people can consider their hopes, their dreams, their future, their relationship with God and the bigger issues of life.
Fort Guts is located off beautiful, scenic Fort Gibson Lake and offers the best in water activities including tubing, wakeboarding, and canoeing. Other activities include team competitions and team-building exercises designed to harness their creativity and personality in a group setting, opening the lines of communication in your youth group and building trust.
Our programs at Fort Guts were designed with the safety of your youth in mind. Camp leaders are trained, background checked and handpicked young, qualified adults who are on fire for God with a heart for teens. The youth/leader ratio is 1:8. For all of water sports, we follow the guidelines set forth by the state of Oklahoma for safety.
Our camps run Wednesday through Saturdays. Groups arrive at Guts Church at 6pm, attend our youth service and are bussed over to Fort Guts following that service. Groups return by bus from camp on Saturday night by 9pm.
Cost is $150/camper and each group must consist of at least 25. Fort Guts has a capacity of 100 campers with separate lodging for boys and girls. The cost includes transportation and 10 meals including dinner on Wednesday night.
