Southwest Camp

We look forward to you joining us for Southwest Camp 2022! We will have camp at the same location as last year, Camp Wamatochick in Prescott, Arizona. This beautiful 80-acre camp nestled in the pines of the Prescott National Forest will be our Southwest region camp moving forward. We had a wonderful time here last year and look forward to building on that great time this coming year! It is a beautiful location with temperatures in the mid 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and around 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night as we are nearly 6,500 feet in elevation. We have many onsite activities such as arts and crafts, field sports, volleyball, ropes course, Bible class, dance class and others. We also go off site to a local lake where we have kayaking and paddle boarding.  

Our primary goal in the United Youth Camps program is to point our youth to their Creator. We begin each day with Compass Check, which sets the tone for the day. As we carry out the day’s activities, we put these principles into practice in ways that are designed to help us live God’s way in everything we do. We end the day as a camp family together at the campfire, where we continue to build relationships, learn biblical principles and have lots of laughs. Wamatochick means “a place of friends” in the local Yavapai language. At UYC we recognize the importance of building those lasting godly relationships with one another, so we build a lot of time into the schedule to allow opportunities for you to do just that. To bring camp to a close, we conclude with the formal banquet and dance, which brings campers and staff together for a final evening of conversation, laughter and wonderful memories. We have many service opportunities for dedicated counselors and activity staff, as well as lifeguards, drivers, kitchen staff, dish crew, janitorial staff, those certified in lifesaving skills and staffers experienced in other various UYC activities.  

Camp Wamatochick is located about 10 minutes outside of Prescott, Arizona, on Senator Highway (approximately 2 hours from Phoenix). For those flying into PHX airport, we will arrange free transportation to and from camp. All staff members must arrive on Friday, July 22, for staff training. Campers need to arrive at camp for registration on July 24 between 2-4 p.m. Camp ends at 8 a.m. on Sunday, July 31.  All staff and camper departures should occur between 8-10 a.m. Please do not schedule any departure flights before 11 a.m. Prescott is served by a smaller regional airport that United and Boutique Air serves, so connecting flights from Phoenix are available if it works for you. Come join us at the newest UYC camp this summer!
