What's happening at Pyoca?

Statement on COVID-19 from Sr. Director Mike Davis
The physical, emotional, and spiritual safety of our campers and guests has always been and will continue to be our number one concern. In light of the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we felt it important to share with you our current plans. We are closely monitoring the situation relying on trusted external sources like the Indiana State Department of Health and the American Camping Association as well as internal resources like our medical protocols and emergency action plans. At this time we are preparing for another amazing season of summer camp at Pyoca. Retreats and events scheduled for March and April will be handled on a case by case basis in consultation with the retreat host and guidance from health department officials. Disinfection and cleaning of high traffic areas will take place with increased frequency and as always hand sanitizer will be available at meals and around camp. In this season of lent and this unprecedented time in our history I take comfort in Psalm 46 - "be still and know that I am God." We will keep you updated here and via email. Be sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for more frequent posts and glimpses of camp to stay connected during this potentially isolating time.

Overflow: Sept. 11 - 13, 2020 (New Dates)
We are delighted to partner with Rev. Kim Olson of First-Meridian Heights Presbyterian Church this fall as we bring you Overflow, a retreat designed to provide women with a space to rest, renew, and engage in fellowship with other women.
Perhaps you feel your cup is empty and has nothing left to give, or maybe your cup cannot handle all that is being poured into it. Whatever it may be, we invite you to come to Overflow bringing a cup with you that is special or representative of your faith. These cups could be heirlooms or the same coffee mug you use at home or work every day. We will utilize these personal cups throughout our devotional time together. We will focus our devotional time together inspired by the work of Joyce Rupp’s devotional The Cup of Our Life.
