Summer Camp Opportunities for Children and Teens
Summer camp provides endless laughter, meaningful worship, and important friendships. Camp also provides a solid foundation that lasts a lifetime by giving youth the gifts of confidence, faith in God, and a healthy self-esteem. Campers don’t just hear about something, they do it! Everything at camp is hands on, feet on, and heads up!
The Upper New York Camp and Retreat Ministries has exciting summer camp programs planned for you in 2013! There are six awesome UMC camps in New York that are offering over 200 programs this summer.
Camp Asbury and Camp Findley are the two camps used most often by Western New Yorkers. Both of these camps offer programs for children and youth, ages 6-18, that vary in length from a couple of days to a week long experience. They also provide all of the “camp favorites” like swimming, arts and crafts, basketball, volleyball, and hiking. Here is a little more information about these two camps:
