The church I grew up in is the home church of the current president of Campus Crusade for Christ (Steve Douglass).
Mr. Douglass has been on CCC staff since I was a kid in that church. (I’m now 49).
Do some googling on Campus Crusade for Christ and Catholicism.
It might make you feel better to know that Dr. Bill Bright, the founder and president of CCC until he died, was an enthusiastic signer of the Evangelicals and Catholics Together document.
He took IMMENSE criticism for this from many anti-Catholic Protestant leaders.
A few years ago, there was a wonderful article in Christianity Today (a leading evangelical Protestant magazine) that told how Dr. Bright partnered with Bishop Karol Wojtyla of Poland to bring Bible studies material into Poland for use by Catholics. I wish I could find the article online.
I know at least one couple, Jay and Gail Caress, who were CCC staff members who have since become Catholics. Their story was on “Coming Home” on EWTN. I’m sure they didn’t learn Catholicism from CCC, but the point is, the Holy Spirit apparently wasn’t hindered by CCC.
I agree that it is probably risky to send a 13-year old off to CCC camp. Is she very knowledgeable about her faith? Is she a strong Catholic? If so, it might be OK. But if she is a typical 13 year-old, she is very impressionable and will want to “fit in” with all the other kids. CCC can use some pretty strong emotional appeals to get kids to “make a decision” for Christ.
IF the CCC camp staff leaders are true to the goals of CCC, they would not try to persuade your daughter to leave the Catholic Church. Dr. Bill Bright would definitely not approve! Rather, they would encourage her to make a decision to serve Jesus, and go back to her church and become the BEST Catholic Christian she can!
But I fear that they would probably see a Catholic as a non-Christian, and therefore would try, not necessarily interntionally, to get her to go to a real “Bible believing church.”
I agree with those who have suggested that you call the people who are leading the camp and set up an appointment with them. Talk to them face to face. Tell them about Dr. Bright’s support of Evangelicals and Catholics Together and ask if they are in agreement with their former President’s stand that “Catholics are Christians, too.” Show them some of the stuff that you google that demonstrates that CCC is traditionally supportive of the Catholic Church. Ask them point-blank what they intend to teach.
VERY IMPORTANT: Ask them to give you the materials to take home and study over with your daughter. I can guarantee that Campus Crusade for Christ always uses WRITTEN materials to teach from, so you should be able to get copies of it.
If you feel inadequate to the task of studying the materials, ask a Protestant convert in your church, preferably a convert from evangelical Protestantism, to study over the materials with your daughter. They will pick up on the anti-Catholic teachings, if any, in the material.
Good luck to you.
