113,470 Camp Attendees
17,783 Certified Huddles
In the beginning, Don McClanen saw the potential impact athletes and coaches could have on youth and athletes and ultimately, our communities and culture. He was diligent in pursing this vision.
Under FCA's founding fathers (Dr. Louis R. Evans, Dr. Roe Johnston, Don McClanen and Branch Ricky) Fellowship of Christian Athletes ebcame an official charter on November 10, 1954 in Norman, Oklahoma. Then, two years later, the first FCA conference, i.e. camp in Estes Park, Colorado took place with a few hundred attendees.
Since then, FCA has expanded to include 62 countries, 113,470 camp attendees, and 17,783 certified huddles. More than the numbers, Fellowship of Christian Athletes has grown from an organization to living community of members who love sport and love Jesus. In fact, this has been happening for over 60 years now!
