Camp Travels (to you!)

A little slice of the camp community can come to you and we’re prepared to bring camp on the road in various ways. Cat Holbert, Executive Director of Camp & Retreat Ministries, is happy to come to your church to share a sermon or a presentation about camp. Camp staff can visit for games, Bible study, and campy activities for families, children, and youth. We are also thrilled to partner with you to provide a camp or retreat event at your local church in your local community!

Contact us today to talk about how we can travel to you!

Take Over Sundays

Children’s, youth, and young adult ministry IS happening in the Desert Southwest at Mingus Mountain! Let’s raise awareness about camp and retreat ministry’s impact on young people’s lives by participating in our “Takeover Sundays” initiative.

It’s easy!

You choose three consecutive Sundays to highlight camp ministry for these “Takeover” experiences (think social media takeovers, but in person!)
    • On Sunday 1, we provide an impact story for sharing with your congregation.
    • On Sunday 2, we ask someone to share an impact story, live and in person, during your church service. One of us (a staff member or Board member) is happy to come share OR you can recruit a camper, parent, staff, or family who has been impacted by camp to share their story.
    • On Sunday 3, we provide a final impact story and giving envelopes. On this Sunday, we ask someone in your congregation make an “ask” for camp giving. This give can be for Annual Funds, Campership Funds, or other special giving for camp.
Our goal for these “Takeovers” is to educate our community about camp’s impact, engage with our churches, and raise funds so we can enhance the operations at our camps, offer better and more impactful programming, and keep prices as low as possible.
