    Updated: May 30, 2023

    Fan the Flame of Pyoca's Ministry: June 21, 2023

    For over 70 years, Pyoca has kept the fire of faith going. For generations, we've been the place you can send your kids to camp to explore, grow, rest, and play. But that fire doesn't happen by accident. God's faithfulness has guided us. Beautiful servants have blessed us. Amazing staff continue to lead us. And they keep the fire going.

    Join us as we celebrate Pyoca's Day of Giving on Wednesday, June 21st. Our goal is to “Fan the Flame” to keep the fire of faith going strong for another 70 years, and we're hoping to raise $10,000 in one day. Whether it's a large gift or a small one, it all helps. It all fans the flame and keeps the fire of faith burning.
