If you’ve ever experienced life at UCYC you already know – our people get it.
Sure, we have great food, over-the-top games and recreation, comfortable cabins, and cool spaces to meet and connect…but anyone can do that.
- We get life in ministry.
- We make it easy and fun for you to camp or retreat.
- We understand the power of a shared experience in an outdoor setting.
- We love life transformation – not just in our guests but in our own community.
But – don’t take our word for it. Watch the stories of the impact camp has on leaders, pastors, parents, and campers, and scan the real-time, real-life reviews (below) posted on Google and Facebook.
How is this possible? Frontline joys and scars. Many of us have worked in churches, ministries and youth groups. We bring your perspective to all we do.
…a parent whose kids have come home from camp closer to Jesus..
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.
We have nothing but good things to say about UCYC. My daughter has been going to UCYC for several years and even several times for Jr high (as a mentor) and High school (as a student) camp in the same year. She absolutely loves it! She was asked to consider becoming an actual counselor this winter and next summer. We are definitely going to encourage her to apply to be on staff. She would make a great counselor for kids at camp!
My kids have been going to UCYC for years! I cannot thank UCYC enough for keeping my kids passion for Christ alive through the use of a clean, high energy and friendly camp! My kids always feel so welcome at UCYC by the wonderful staff and they look forward to seeing them every year. The guest speakers are always fantastic and the worship is relevant. My children are never bored as there is definitely no lack of activities available to them in between church and small groups. And they have never once complained about the food- no small feat! I highly recommend UCYC and plan to send my children here again and again!!
Amazing and most helpful staff! Great programing and most importantly my pre-teens have an experience of a lifetime. I have families planning their summer and winter vacation around camp because UCYC has made a huge Impact on their lives!
Had a great time here! Cabins are nice and warm. Good food and coffee! Love that we didn't have to clean cabins afterwards. My Jr high kids had fun. Love to come back for winter camp next year!
UCYC was an amazing experience for my first High School camp! Will definitely recommend to friends, and hope to come back next year! I loved the overall layout of the camp, friendly staff, and all of the different activities provided. 😀
I took our small group of kids from our church in Tucson. It was a beautiful and enriching experience as we each took steps nearer to Jesus on our individual faith journeys. The staff was fantastic! The food was great! They were very accommodating with some restrictive dietary needs. Only down side, as an adult, was the sleeping situation. It would be nice if there were appropriate "adult-sized" beds. Overall, I look forward to attending with our group again next year!
