History & Political Science

Deepen your history knowledge and develop leadership through fun activities and exciting presentations.

Registration is open to campers from 14 to 18 years old who have just completed or are entering into grades 9–12.

History comes alive as you explore America’s Christian heritage, examine the role of government, and deepen your understanding of God’s plan for mankind at History and Political Science Camp. This camp provides useful knowledge from historical eras and events, with practical training in political procedures.

Daily activities include exciting presentations by Pensacola Christian College history and political science faculty and current political leaders, history challenges, legislative workshops, monodramas and skits, and special projects. With a biblical foundation, you’ll develop a greater appreciation for your heritage and broaden your understanding of government.

If conditions allow, campers will visit the National Naval Aviation Museum and need to bring a photo ID to camp for admittance. Those wanting to view the Giant Screen Theater at the museum should keep cash available for the desired shows.

What to Expect

Past themes for History and Political Science Camp have included studies in America’s first colony Jamestown, the West, exploration, and the American republic.

However you spend your free time, you’ll be spending it with your newfound friends. You can explore the Sports Center—climb the rock wall, bowl with friends, cool off in the ice-skating rink, or make a splash at the water park. You can grab a smoothie at the Common Grounds Café and just hang out. Each day, chapel will be a time to come together and grow spiritually.


History and Political Science Camp emphasizes leadership and provides practical tools for your future in history or politics.

Camp Director

Dr. Northrop

Dr. Steve Northrop

Dr. Stephen Northrop earned a doctorate in history from Pensacola Christian College. He began teaching history at the College in 1996. He enjoys his role as director of the PCC Summer History Camp and believes that teaching history in the camp setting is a great privilege.

Studying history is important because it allows us to understand our past, which in turn allows us to understand our present. It is paramount to study history to ensure that we do not repeat mistakes that have been made in the past. As a Christian educator, Dr. Northrop desires that each camper learns why history is vital to Christians and how God has blessed our country.
