2022 is our 70th year of ministry, and we are incredibly excited to be offering a mix of our annual programs, along with opportunities to give back and celebrate our 70th anniversary. Join us for one of our many exciting programs through the end of the year:

FALL YOUTH RETREAT: November 18th - 20th
Join us for our annual Fall Youth Retreat this November! Each year youth gather together from across Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio for a weekend of rest and fall fun at Pyoca. Youth will gather for keynotes and worship each day, meet new friends through small group sessions, and have plenty of time to explore all that Pyoca has to offer.

JACKSON COUNTY 50/50 ULTRAMARATHON: December 2nd - 4th
Each year we partner with D.IN.O. (Do INdiana Off-road) to host the Jackson Co. 50/50 Ultramarathon. Runners of all levels are welcome to choose their length of race: 10 miles, 50k, or 50 miles. The challenging race course, coupled with Pyoca's warm hospitality, makes for a great weekend when you add a meal and lodging package to your registration.

Help support our runners! Each year we invite members of the community to volunteer at aid stations throughout the forestry. Learn more about how to volunteer for this event.
