What's the difference between a Pyoca Program and a Partner Program?

Camping as an industry has looked really different over the years. Traditionally, Christian camp programs were started by individual churches as a supplement to their year round youth programs. Many churches brought their youth to summer camps long before camp and retreat centers began running their own programming. Pyoca was no different. Our site was rented out by churches for their own summer camp programs for decades before we began offering our own summer camp programs with a full summer staff.

Our site operates about 50% of our camps on this traditional Partner Program model. Partner camps are summer camp programs that operate within Pyoca’s summer camp season and are supported by Pyoca’s summer staff, but are primarily run, marketed, and staffed by an outside organization such as a church or youth-serving non-profit. Today we host camps for both church and non-profit organizations, in addition to our four weeks of camp programming. Partner Program camps bring in their own volunteer staffs and lead their own programming. Our summer staff supplements Partner Programs in various ways, but predominantly by facilitating waterfront and adventure course activities.

Pyoca Programs are run and fully staffed by Pyoca. We hire and train a staff of young adults to lead all aspects of our camp programming. See our Summer Staff page to learn more.

While we are supported by and operate in theological and missional partnership with the Presbyterian Church (USA), we welcome all to our programs.
