2/10/2014 "Camp is wonderful place that allows me to be myself. As a young man it was a necessary thing that helped find myself, my walk with Christ, and others. I love camp and know that youth within the church walls and beyond really need camp and other chances to connect with each other. It is a great time get in touch with youth from all sorts of backgrounds.
Some of my most memorable moments in my life are from church camp. Think about it, you have a week with very bad cell reception, and the coolest people on the planet all around you. How can you not have a good time?"

How do we nurture our youth in Christian living? Do we do this through Sunday School classes or youth meetings ? If we do and if they meet 9 months a year for perhaps 45 minutes per week, that's only, at best, about 30 hours a year, hit and miss. What if churches make a concerted effort to send children and youth from their community to church camp where there will be intensive, 24 hour a day, programing in Christian living.
The Yellowstone Conference has church camps to fulfill this awesome possibility. Please begin thinking who could befit from a week at church camp and how to get them there. Church camp changes peoples lives, be a part of this wonderful opportunity.
