NTS Camp and Protect Young Eyes Team Up!

This blog post is written specifically for parents of kids who will be attending NTS Camp in summer 2018. 

NTS Camp is about to begin!

Question: does your kid love his/her technology? If so, then please keep reading!

In just a few short weeks, on June 11, the first of seven 2018 NTS camps will kick-off at Indiana Wesleyan University. High school and middle school students from around the country will soon be engulfed in team comps, amazing worship and teaching, and non-stop engagement with each other and the Spirit of God.

This blog post is written specifically so that your kids and their technology are prepared for an amazing NTS Camp experience.

Since our inception in 2015, the mission of Protect Young Eyes has been to help busy, concerned parents and hyper-connected kids use their technology responsibly. We do this through:

And, as we speak to parents and to kids across the country, we are constantly challenging all to ask themselves, “do I control my device, or does it control me?”

But, what about the iPhone or the new Galaxy that’s in their pocket while they’re at camp? Does it pose a risk?

Maybe your kid brings a smartphone so that they can keep in touch with you. That’s great, but let me give you a few additional items to consider:

When Jesus sent out the 72, He told them “I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals; and greet no one along the way” (Luke 10:3-4). Jesus wants them to have as little distraction as possible as they go out to witness to Him and His kingdom.

While your teens will surely be packing a bag and bringing money, we are asking for your assistance in limiting distractions on this trip—particularly by addressing the distractions presented by technology.

NTS has been preparing for camp for months and they will do everything in their power to ensure your teens are protected from inappropriate content and excessive use of technology while under their care. But, they know that some of the best prep happens at home. Protect Young Eyes is here to help parents prep their kids and their technology for an amazing week.

We love what Jeff Eckart and the NTS Camp team are doing to point kids toward Jesus! We’re honored to be working with them. If you have specific questions about how to protect the young eyes in your home, please reach out to us at

    Through much research and prayer, God has lead us to this site and your mission!
    Do you come to schools in Michigan?
    There are many schools in need of this service!
    My son is going through a difficult time at 12 because we took away his social media and his game fortnite which he became addicted to in 2 months of restricted time and monitoring his use. Difficult to watch his withdrawal!! My child has no previous medical or mental problems! As parents we gave to pressure that most kids were playing and it originally looked like Minecraft! I have batteled some surgeries and took my eyes off here and there while recovering!!
    This game is horrific as levels increase and the game fortnite Royal comes in! It has become available on mobile devices of all kinds which we believed he was playing only on Xbox live so when we ended Xbox live we thought it was over? Nope, wrong again parents!
    The big problem is when kids search out how to get better, Instagram and YouTube have videos that look like fortnite training (bad on that level) horrid on this level, these streams are loaded with drugs, how to do them, make them, porn, cursing, saying they are “God” if they ace the game and I could go on.
    All his friends are still playing and most have social media. We are at a Christian school. Our son is an athlete and straight A student! Grades in some assignments started to fall which prompted us to look and research into this game and social media in depth!
    Our school has had an episode with kids using chrome books for fortnite then a child brought candy with medicine in it to school. Kids tried it! Not my son but some other kids were found to have researched it on their chrome books!
    We have been communicating with the school. Oakland Computer Crisis group is coming in to speak next month!
    I could use any additional information on a group to address our children bc this group addresses the adults.

    Hello, I’m sorry for all of these troubles. Chromebooks are difficult right now because Google has stripped away so much. We speak at schools across the country to grades K-12 and parents. Please let me know if you’re interested –
