Best. Camp. Ever.
The Academy is a week you’ll never forget. An experience of community, learning, joy, and prayer to reset the trajectory of your life. See for yourself! Blow your mind. Grow your faith. Rediscover your world.
Mentors are models of Christian adulthood: young teachers, pastors, entrepreneurs, artists, or grad students at schools like MIT, Stanford, Oxford, Duke, and Yale.
They lead deep discussions of big ideas, and they form a personal relationship with each student.
Every year, students say that the community they formed with their cohort was different: deeper, more helpful, more alive. And that’s no surprise. Our staff is carefully trained to help students form Christlike relationships, right from day one.
Here, you’ll encounter ideas that could change your life, learn to love God with your mind, and discover that you’re capable of harder, better thinking than you believed.
You’ll see that Christianity is big enough to contain the whole world, and you’ll rediscover that Jesus left a way you can really follow. Welcome to real, dangerous faith.
No more hiding; no more fear. Come look at the world head-on, and discover the best it offers. Encountering beauty and excellence, you’ll be freed for new worship and joy.

For several years now I have seen up close what the The Academy experience has done in the lives of students who attend. My conclusion? I've never seen anything like it. Wheatstone is unique, stimulating, transformative, and has a lasting impact on the minds and character of those who take the plunge.
Wheatstone is doing something very important - helping young Christians grow into adulthood such that their faith is fully integrated into their lives. I'm particularly excited about the way that Wheatstone calls young people to a life of holiness - this is the way we will transform our culture.
"The Academy was my bridge between childhood and adulthood. It fostered Christian maturity by pointing out that life is full of things worth pursuing whatever the cost. It introduced the life I had always wanted but never knew existed."
"This camp empowered me to overcome my fears by showing me the Love that transforms and redeems all things. A decade later, the things I learned at Wheatstone still help me follow Jesus."
