In the fall of 2019, we will begin renovations on The Pines Lodge. Renovations will provide:

  • Additional entrances/exits
  • Windows
  • Bathrooms
  • Modernized interior
  • Updated production equipment

These upgrades will ensure that this popular venue will not only be less distracting and a more comfortable space in which campers can praise the Lord, but renovations ensuring it is a SAFER venue in which they can praise.

Our worship venues accommodate various sizes of groups and provide space for our campers and guests to gather as communities for teaching, building relationships, and having fun. They act as additional shelter from the weather and host a variety of activities for all seasons.

Sarah would love to answer any questions you may have!

UCYC covers 146 acres, with over 60 buildings and houses, and accommodates a staff of around 50 year-round employees. When you give to our General Fund, your donation will be used where it is most needed, ensuring the continuation of our mission!


Each year, UCYC grants over $10,000 in scholarships to families who need tuition assistance. Your gift to our Scholarship Fund will be used specifically for this need, allowing more students to attend UCYC and learn of God’s love for them!


Improvements to buildings, grounds, and recreation are funded by the generosity of churches and individuals above and beyond the fees that are paid for attending camps and retreats. After nearly 70 years of transformational ministry, some of our facility is in need of some revitalization. Your gifts will make these needed improvements a reality and will directly impact the level of excellence in which we can share the gospel with students and adults alike.

Absolutely the best camp in Arizona. Just got home from Winter Camp with our students. Everything was the best that it could be because EVERYTHING is filtered through the mindset of excellency because of Jesus (also who can go wrong with a 90s themed camp?!?!?)!!!!! If you are considering UCYC for summer or winter camps or for a retreat center or anything else… stop considering and just do it. You won’t be disappointed.
