  3. The laughter, fellowship, and the love you encounter and establish at camp is something that not only is a part of your life for that week, but stays in your heart year-round. It’s been a place for me to build a strong and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, and doing so alongside of some of the greatest friends I could have asked God for. Whether you’re coming to camp with six people, or coming on your own, the amount of love we have to pour out is unbelievable… There is always going to be someone to connect with

  4. It’s not just a camp, but something I live by every day. It has been and is my journey of faith. It is my promise to work hard to make YES Camp a great experience with every camper to come and it is my goal to remain a part of this ministry for a long time to come

  5. You need to experience it yourself! As a child, it was a safe place to make new friends, create great memories, and learn about God. You learn what matters is God, who is listening and guiding you in the right direction. Now as a mother and the JR Camp Director, I teach our youth the same thing I was taught because it made me who I am today!

  6. Every staff member gains a week, if not more, from camp. We are not compensated, but we get “paid” a different way. Meeting kids who come from broken homes, bad relationships, not knowing Christ; then seeing the transformation. Better than any monetary payment. YES Camp molded me into the person I am today

  8. For me to put an adjective to how moved my soul is every year when I witness hundreds of campers making the choice to devote a week of their summer to learning about the lord is nearly impossible. Yes Camp is the safest place to go and lay your worries down at the sign in table. Yes camp is the place to investigate your questions, to find sanctity in knowing you're never alone, and that God has his hand on your back. Yes camp is the place to find friends that you can turn to for the rest of your life no matter what. Yes Camp turned my whole life around and I can honestly say I wouldn't be the woman I am today without it in my life. I was saved at YES Camp. And I promise I will commit every summer I physically can to helping others in their walk with faith.
