We believe in children, youth, and families.
We also believe that our natural world offers a unique setting for whole life learning and spiritual growth.
Through our many experiences, we know that God touches the lives of people in a special way when we gather together in nature to explore who we are as God’s people and how we might participate in the world as faithful stewards and servants.
Our lives are transformed when we sing, play, eat, study, walk, laugh and worship together. CCNCN Outdoor Ministries strives to provide a variety of opportunities for young people to experience the Christian community in fresh ways.
The Outdoor Ministries Committee is diligently doing their behind the scenes work. We have evaluated the 2023 summer camps and rejoiced in the exciting impacts camp has made in the lives of our youth. Even the very youngest of our campers expressed their wishes to stay longer in that beautiful place we call the Community of the Great Commission.
Now we plan for the summer of 2024. The dates for camp are below. We are combining all of our camps into one week. We think this interage grouping has many benefits including extra attention for our youngest and leadership growth opportunities for our older campers. Please put these dates on your calendar. And please do not let cost be a prohibiting factor. We have been blessed with an estate gift that doubled our endowment for camp scholarships beginning next year.

Each Fall, the region sponsors an event for youth at a local church. The Fall Fest is a great way to connect with friends new and old & rekindle the sparks of the Spirit among us.
For Chi-Rho (Junior High) youth, this annual weekend event in January features a keynoter, small groups, community building and FUN FUN FUN.
For CYF (High School) Youth, Feb Camp is an awesome weekend of discovery, laughter, and singing. The Regional Youth Council plays a key leadership role at this event.
