What is UCYC?

UCYC (short for United Christian Youth Camp) is a thriving non-profit in Prescott AZ.

We specialize in making it EASY and FUN for youth pastors and children’s leaders to bring their students to one of our 35, life-changing camps and retreats or run their own events at one of our three camps.

Our mission is to be used of God to see lives transformed through experiencing the outdoors, community, and the love of Christ.

What “FUN-STUFF” is there to do?

Fun is a starting place.

Whether you desire to break free of fear as you climb the wall or fly on the zipline, experience trust at the leap of faith, develop practical teamwork and strategic thinking during an intense game of paintball, UCYC is about integrating fun into life for personal transformation. Come and try these out:

Rock Wall | Zip Line | Screamer Swing | Archery | Field | Pool | Gaga Ball

Rock Wall & Zip Line | Leap of Faith | GIant’s Ladder | Screamer Swing | Archery | Paintball | Field

Static Course | Tango Tower | Zip Line | Low Ropes | Archery | Paintball | Gaga Ball | Field | Basketball

“UCYC gave us an opportunity to build relationships and learn how to see ourselves and each other as made in the image of God. Our experience with the swing and climbing wall/zip line was a great time to cheer each other on and build community.

You want to bring your group to one of UCYC fully-designed summer or winter camps for grades 4-12. WE plan it for you. Plug and play. We take care of lodging, meals, recreation, speakers, worship – full-service. All you need to do is focus on relationships with your youth and volunteers.

Was UCYC worth the RISK?

Stephen Pate, a seasoned youth pastor from Southern California knew he was taking a HUGE RISK. UCYC was a 6-hour bus ride. If UCYC didn’t deliver for his high-schoolers, it could mean his job. That was 6-years ago. Stephen now says: “UCYC has become the highlight of our year. Students experience real-life transformation through the relationships built with each other and God.”

One thing that differentiates us from other camps is that the church’s LEADERS in a 1:7 ratio, as well as a pastor, COME FREE.
