Camp Sign-Up

Current 6th, 7th, 8th students - after two years we are planning to go to camp together again! Join us for five days at Sugar Pine Christan camp in Oakhurst, CA. We will stay in cabins together along with a young adult JYM alum cabin leader. The camp has a plethora of activities, along with engaging worship and a week-long speaker to help us grow in our faith.

Cost is $500, but we have scholarships available, so if you are hesitating due to price please sign up and let us know what you are able to pay.

Currently camp is only open for our current jr. high students, but depending on numbers, we may open to 9th & 10th grade students who previously missed out on years they would have been able to attend camp with us. We will update sign-ups if that becomes the case.

From the camp website: "Come to the WILD side this summer at Camp Sugar Pine! Learn to live life on the edge with extreme faith.

It’s a jungle up here with awesome activities like the high ropes course, paintball, archery, exciting tournaments, crazy games and so much more! 

This year get ready for our wild our MUD PIT recreation day! Volleyball, Tug-of-war and other muddy games are always a blast. This will be an unforgettably fun day! Get your friends on board - this is going to be an adventure!"

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
