Treybig Reports on United Youth Camps

July 13, 2010

UYC Camps Running Well

The famous “Zone” of United Youth Camps (UYC) has once again descended on several areas of the country. Last week it could be found at Camp Woodmen in Alabama as 118 campers enjoyed a week of weather with highs mainly in the 80s—a real treat in Alabama! Camp Director Bill Johnson said that overall it was a great camp and mentioned that several of the young adult staff stood out in maturity and focus on God’s way of life.

This week the Zone is being experienced by 113 campers at Camp Hye Sierra in California and 93 campers with 41 staff members at Camp Carter in Fort Worth, Texas. Our UYC theme for Christian Living this year is “Camp Supports Family.” As such, all the morning Compass Checks as well as the sermons on the Sabbath will cover aspects of this spiritually-rich theme. Instruction focuses on the importance of physical family and its parallel with what God is doing to create His spiritual family by working with humans who will eventually be born into His family. Of course, this theme is a perfect fit with the atmosphere we create at our UYC camps each year where the staff work to help campers accept all their dorm mates as part of their “camp family” for the week.

Later this month the Northwest camp will run at Rockaway Beach, Oregon. Then near the middle of August Camp Pinecrest in Fredricktown, Missouri, and Camp Heritage in Farmington, Pennsylvania, will be in session.

In addition to our teen camps, a number of preteen camps will also take place during the summer. They, too, will be based on the same principles of family fun in a positive atmosphere that places value on each individual and emphasizes building positive relationships with God, fellow campers, staff and ministers. All of our camp programs greatly appreciate the prayers and support of parents and others who care deeply about helping the next generations of youth embrace God’s way of life.

  1. Thank you, Mr. Treybig, and thanks very much to all of the hard-working directors and staff who make these camps a great success — year in and year out. My kids have been to several of these camps, and have enjoyed them all. These programs are truly an oasis in a sometimes challenging world that our teens experience much of the year. Your excellent efforts are greatly appreciated.

  2. Thank you Mr.Treybig. It is good news to hear Church leaders are working with the youth.We do steer our grand children toward this opertunity and it is good news to hear of youth leaders working with the the Chelsi’s, Bret’s and Brooklyn’s.Please teach our children about falling out of trees and from rafts… the safe way. Be prepared.Also teach the necessity of being in the habit of doing a good deed daily. They will be church leaders some day and should start now.

  3. Hello to all,
    Just wanted to add a note that I had the opportunity to be part of Camp Woodmen again this year as an older staff worker (helped Mr Haeffele with the golf program). I had a great time with the campers and the other staff members.
    From my perspective – as a church member and as a parent – the church does an excellent job with the camps. I have seen firsthand how camp operates and the effect that it has on the young people.
    Mr Johnson, Mr Dobson, and the other staff members did a fine job as well as a bunch of younger staff workers. We have some special kids in the church (staff and campers) and I appreciated the chance to get to know them and work with them.
