Camp Pastor

Trent Creason

Trent along with his wife Sarah and three children reside in Campbellsville Kentucky where he has served at Campbellsville University for the past 13 years in a variety of roles and currently as the Campus Minister. Trent has served in a myriad of ministry roles including youth, children, college and senior pastor ministries. CentriKid has played a major role in Trent’s life through the opportunities to serve as a staffer, Camp Pastor, and Camp Director.

Worship Leader

Emily Martin

Emily is a full-time singer-songwriter and worship leader based out of Nashville, TN. She has a passion for creating music rooted in and filled with the Word as a powerful resource for personal and corporate worship, family worship, scripture memory, and everyday encouragement in the lives of believers. Over the past 10 years, her and her husband Jonathan have released 7 albums and traveled the country with their three kids (Judah, June and Milo) sharing their songs and leading worship in hopes of encouraging the body of Christ to see and love Jesus more through the gift of His Word. Her and her husband are also contracted songwriters with Lifeway Kids and have written several songs for “The Gospel Project” curriculum as well as CentriKid.


The staff we work alongside at Campbellsville University is fantastic! They are dedicated to going above and beyond to make it a great week at camp! This beautiful campus is in a small, quiet town and is very close together, which makes keeping up with campers and getting to see them at Recreation and Track Times easy.

When you arrive on campus, you will follow the CentriKid flags to the center of campus to the library, also called “Books and Beans.” There, our staff will take your kids, and you will go inside with your Camp Director to get checked in.

After check-in, your kids will need to take a swim test on that first day. Be sure to communicate to kids and adults that they should plan to take the swim test if they want to swim in the deep end or jump off the diving board. Kids may still swim in the shallow end without taking the swim test. If kids from your group happen to miss the test during check-in, we will offer a make-up test after Church Group Devotions on the first day only.

Tax information

Lifeway is required to collect sales tax for events held in Kentucky. The sales tax charge will be added to the final balance on your camp confirmation statement. For churches traveling from out of state, you must send Lifeway a sales tax exemption for the state in which the event is held to have these taxes removed. Churches may obtain the proper documentation from the state’s Department of Taxation or Department of Revenue where available (Arkansas does not provide churches with exemption status). State tax exemption forms should be scanned and emailed to taxexemption@lifeway.com.

Amenities on campus

The Davenport Student Commons houses a Starbucks, a Chick-Fil-A Express and a public computer area that can be utilized by leaders to check email, etc. There also is a campus bookstore in that building that sells drinks, candy, and other items that campers can purchase during Hang Time.

Wifi is available in the dorm lobbies and most common areas on campus. There will be an area in Books & Beans (library) that will have internet access all day for adults to stop in and hang out with each other, check email, and just have a few quiet moments away from the craziness of camp.

For those late-night snackers, the Chick-Fil-A campus connection will have the late night menu available again. You can pre-order items for church group time by using the following forms. Feel free to ask our Campbellsville contact about this upon check-in!

Campbellsville now has a Papa John’s and the Tigerville Grille on campus available for meals or snacks. Be sure to check out their menus prior to your arrival so that you can plan accordingly.

in case of bad weather

We communicate with Group-Leaders on-site when we know bad weather is coming, and our staff have plans in place whenever storms pop-up unexpectedly.

In case of inclement weather, we use SAC gym, the baseball hitting facility, and other buildings on campus to keep campers safe while still being able to enjoy each activity at camp. Your Camp Director will keep you updated on everything you need to know when conditions like these arise at camp.
