YPG Summer Camp

Every year the YPG hosts a summer camp trip. Each state where the YPG is based, from California all the way to NY, invests in what is considered the climax of events in the YPG calendar for each year.

Here in Texas we do that too. Last year we went to Mo-Ranch in Kerville, TX.

Next week Monday we'll be off to Mo-Ranch again. It's a beautiful place to be.

However, our main objective is not to enjoy the breathtaking scenery but to get closer to the Creator of that amazing landscape. 

It's 4 1/2 hours away from Houston, right in the middle of nowhere. 

No gadgets of any sort are allowed. The only thing allowed is your Bible. Four days away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Not only that, away from any sort of distraction. 

It's 4 days dedicated to building a close relationship with God. It's FANTASTIC!

We've had some youths telling us they will never forget the experiences they had in the previous years.

The time they spent getting to know each other in order to build a strong and firm connection is worth the time. We are like a huge family after camp is over.

It's worth the money invested. I'd say the 4 days spent there is equivalent to a month and half of pure dedication to strengthening our faith.

Each year we have a different theme. This time the theme is Luke 10:27, from the epistle of Luke in the Bible.

I know for sure that those going camp this year won't regret it.

What about you? 

Will come with us next year?

Pastor, yes! Can the camp start on the weekend so people who work don't have to take 5 days off from work? I know we're a minority but I think that making camp in such a way (if possible) that is saturday through wednesday, let's say would make it easier for the older folks to go ;p

God bless you all!

Wow, the camp is going to be blessed! Especially as it will take place around the time of the Fast of Daniel.

I'm very excited! I have the certainty that many will receive a huge blessing here in NY! =]
