Once again for 2022, we will be returning to Camp Pinecrest in southeast Missouri to build a stronger relationship with God and continue building relationships with one another. Over the many years camp has been held at this location, storied traditions have developed, and new ones continue to be created as campers and staff pour their hearts and love for God into our camp week. Immersed in the environment that Camp Pinecrest provides, campers and staff come together and embrace the fun and fellowship that God wants us to have with Him and one another. As a family, we start every morning together in a Christian living talk before spreading out across the camp for the remainder of our daily activities. Engaging Bible classes and Q&A sessions provide additional time to explore God’s Word. Dorms are organized “family style” (multi-age) to encourage leadership and provide support for every camper.
Campers participate in a range of activities to challenge them physically and mentally. From outdoor activities that focus on skill and team building to a variety of indoor activities, there is something for everyone. Activities include archery, dance class, low ropes/teambuilding, riflery, rock climbing/rappelling, softball, speedaway, standup paddle boarding and volleyball. New for 2022, this year we’ll have an all-day river float trip for brother and sister dorms! One of our most requested additions to camp every year is more fellowship time. Relationships are an important part of the UYC program, and teens value and appreciate the friendships that have developed over the years. At Camp Pinecrest, we provide open gym times for activities such as pickup games, gaga ball, volleyball, basketball or just to spend time with friends.
