Zona's "Experiences"

ZONA Camp is 4 camps in 1 that we call "Experiences". Each Experience allows you to spend part of your day (10am – 2pm) focusing on the area that you are passionate about. Scroll down to see a description of the Zona Experiences.

Make sure your Group Leader knows which Experience you want to be in as space is limited in some experiences.

Zona Experiences

ZONA Experience... Are you ready for the time of your life? The Zona Experience is a well-rounded camp experience that allows you to have fun, make memories, and learn about God’s Word. You’ll be a part of meaningful Bible studies with other people your age, a wide-variety of track times that include relevant issues as well as fun activities, and you'll have the option of participating in tons of great sports! Sign up for the Zona Experience! You’ll talk about it for years to come.


IMPACT is designed for students wanting to take it to the "next level". IMPACT focuses on worldview and leadership development. You must be in High School and receive a recommendation from your pastor or youth minister to be eligible to participate in Impact. For Zona 2019, we are offering IMPACT 1.0 and IMPACT 2.0 (you must attend 1.0 before you can attend 2.0), and 3.0 (you must attend 1.0 & 2.0 before you can attend 3.0).

Mission Life

MISSION LIFE Experience is an on and off-campus mission experience for those students looking for a hands-on experience to serve others.

Worship Catalyst

WORSHIP CATALYST Experience ‘s goal is to prepare musicians, singers, actors and technologists to be the best worship leaders they can be. We do this through hands-on instruction and by helping them understand what leading worship really is: going to God and taking others with us.

Individual classes include acoustic guitar, bass, drums, electric guitar, tech (sound, lighting, video, and graphics), and vocals. Musicians learn to be more effective with their instruments in individual classes and in a band setting. Technologists work hands on with the Zona’s morning and evening service production team to learn how to prepare and run a service.

Note, students in the musical side of this track should have a working knowledge of their instrument and be proficient at an intermediate level.  Due to the limited number of spaces available in this experience, only students who are accepted through an audition process will be able to register for Worship Catalyst Experience. In order to be officially registered for Worship Catalyst Experience, students will need to submit an audition video to showcase their ability to meet these requirements:

*Instrument qualifications: Instrumentalists should be familiar with basic chord notes (bass), chord shapes (guitar), chord positions/inversions (keyboard), multiple grooves with steady tempos (drums), and rhythms (all). They should be of an intermediate or higher level and already have experience serving in this capacity at your church.

*Vocals qualifications: Vocalists should be better than someone who can just “carry a tune” and preferably be serving in a lead vocal capacity, not just in a choir. Since they are all already serving in these areas, you can evaluate them accordingly.

Please send a video of the student performing a song of their choice to:

[email protected]

Include in your email:

Student’s Full Name

Church Name and City

Grade student will complete this year

Youth minister’s name and email address

(***Audition videos without this information will not be considered***)

At the end of WCE we will all come together to show the camp what we have learned.
