Church FAQ – OS

Frequently Asked Questions for Churches

What is NTS Camp | OS?
NTS Camp | OS is NTS Camp Off-Site.  Because of the effects of COVID-19, we are unable to physically gather this year, so we created a camp experience for individual churches to do in the safety of their church when gatherings are allowed in their area. Participating churches receive a digital package of content and instructions for live fun that they will use to put on this event at their church.  The package contains the pillars of NTS Camp like teaching, group games, small group questions and even Team Comps.
Can I be a part of NTS Camp | OS if our church has never attended NTS Camp?

Will refunds be available?

When is NTS Camp | OS?
Church registration is open now, and NTS Camp | OS resources will be available June 1. Due to different restrictions in different states, NTS Camp | OS can be used whenever your ministry is able to meet together again. NTS Camp | OS will be offered all summer and has no time limits on when the event should be held.
Can I combine with another church?
NTS Camp | OS was designed for the individual church assuming gathering size restrictions would be in affect this summer.  If churches want to combine and are allowed to, we would love that!  Each church must purchase their own license but can combine for the event.  Keep in mind, Team Comps time will need to be adjusted as they were created for one church as one team to compete for points.
What is Team Comps and how does it work this summer?
Team Comps (Team Competitions) is a major part of NTS Camp where groups of churches compete to be the Team Comps champion.  Your church will be a part of a global team color made up of churches from all over the country.  As your group works together to play games, complete challenges from the NTS Camp | OS Challenge Board, host your own Talent Show, and even give us an awesome Team Cheer, you will earn points for your team on a global scale.  Once all the points have been tallied one color will stand above the rest as the first ever NTS Camp | OS Team Comps Champion!  Returning churches will be on the same team you were on for NTS Camp 2019.  New churches will be notified upon registration what team you will join.
How does online registration help me?
