Centrifuge is an exciting youth camp sponored by the Church Recreation Department of the Southern Baptist Convention. It is "...a whirlwind experience in sight and sound designed to help young people discover personal gifts, become more aware of human relationships, and continue their search for the wisdom of the Master."
