    • Since 2022, we gained 32 new campers across Pyoca programs,
    • We nearly doubled the amount we gave in scholarship funds: over $15,000!
    • Churches gave nearly $28,000 in mission funding to support camp fees, in total that's around $43,000 in camper financial assistance in 2023!

    Fall Youth Retreat: Nov. 17th - 19th

    Join us this fall for our annual Fall Youth Retreat, with keynote speaker David LaMotte! Through our retreat theme Love Thy Neighbor, we will be exploring what it means to be a Christian in an interfaith world. We'll ask, "How do we live, love, and lead like Jesus and support those who may believe differently than we do?" LaMotte will guide us through these and other questions, along with an interfaith panel hosted at camp on Saturday morning. Join us as we seek to follow Jesus's commandment to Love Thy Neighbor. Join us for a special concert on Sat., Nov. 18th with David LaMotte! Tickets are $20 and open to the public.
