2017 UMC Summer Camps
A week at camp can be a life-changing experience for children and youth. The Summer Camp Programs of the California-Nevada Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church are about meeting the hopes and dreams of parents, and creating lifelong, life-changing memories for young people in a safe, fun, and caring environment.
Your child will discover an ever-greater love for God in their hearts — while growing in self-confidence, resourcefulness, and gratefulness as they encounter a spiritual awakening that will unfold over a lifetime.

United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) –
a Group for 6th – 12th graders
Meeting on Sundays after coffee/fellowship time, this program offers an incredible chance for youth in grades 6-12 to practice leadership, engage in community service, get to know each other, and have a great time while they are doing it. It’s a wonderful way and place to meet new people, make lifetime friends, and contribute to their extended community!
UMYF Meetups are usually held Sundays from 11:30am – 1pm on the youth (3rd) floor of the AMY Building, focusing around fellowship, study, community service projects, church involvement and fun activities off-campus as well. Often, meetings are “Brown-bag”, and members bring their lunch to eat while meeting and planning activities. Contact the coordinators: Youth@campbellunited.org

Sierra Service Project Trip 2017
This will be Sierra Service Project‘s second year ever serving in the state of Washington. Campbell UMC Youth will go to work with the Spokane Indian Reservation in Wellpinit, just outside of the city of Spokane from July 9th-15th. Home to about 2,700 tribal members, this area offers summertime temperatures in the low to mid 80’s. We expect a mix of carpentry, painting and minor home repair work.
For the most part, Sierra Service Project (SSP) teams work on homes in the communities they serve. Occasionally, teams work on churches, community buildings, and schools in the hosting communities. In addition, they sometimes participate in other types of community service activities like community gardens when there is a need and the work is appropriate for youth work teams.
Check out photos of their trip while atWellpinit, WA for SSP.

Sierra Service Project Trip 2016
High School Youth from Campbell UMC went on a mission trip with Sierra Service Project (SSP) from
July 3rd to July 9th.
There they joined other youth in repairing homes, serving the community, strengthening their faith and building relationships.
For the most part, Sierra Service Project (SSP) teams work on homes in the communities they serve. Occasionally, teams work on churches, community buildings, and schools in the hosting communities. In addition, they sometimes participate in other types of community service activities like community gardens when there is a need and the work is appropriate for youth work teams. About one half of the projects in Smith River in 2016 were for community organizations.
