Christian Summer Camp Information for Parents
At United Christian Youth Camp, we are most concerned about life change. Specifically we hope that God would change the lives of everyone who attends. To that end, we use activities and adventure as tools to create an environment that kids would want to be in so that we can teach Jesus Christ! We are thrilled that you are sending your child with anticipation of God doing amazing things during the week. However, we don’t want to stop there, we want to join your efforts to influence this child to follow Jesus everyday of their life. Thanks for entrusting you local Church and UCYC with one of your most precious gifts – your child! We look forward to having them here!

Camp Counselor Info
The counselor to camper ratio is 1 to 7. We ask the churches to bring the leaders for their campers. We believe it’s best for adults from the local church to be counselors because they will form bonds with the kids that they can take home with them. We require the leaders to be background checked by the local church. They also have to complete a UCYC Volunteer Screening Form after reading the UCYC Counselor Guide, which outlines the responsibilities of camp counselors.
Medical and Emergency Info
UCYC will have a nurse available to address health issues. Primarily they are a friend to coach through homesickness in young kids and respond to any medical needs. All medicine must be provided in original packaging with doctor instructions in a ziploc bag clearly labeled the Last Name, First Name, Church & Grade. The nurse will keep all medication secured. If 911 is called, response time is 7 minutes (The Fire Station is 1.5 miles from the UCYC). The Emergency Room is 2 miles from camp.
Sending Mail to Your Camper
Due to an overwhelming increase in the number of camper email submissions and a desire to provide the level of customer service our guests have come to expect, camper email has been discontinued. Please feel free to send handwritten notes, cards, and encouragement to your camper. Please allow 2-4 days for mail to arrive. Mail is distributed to leaders at daily meetings (please note for timing – we are not able to distribute mail on the last day of camp).
