More Than 2,000 Campers in 2023


Missouri Conference churches reached the next generation through various camping experiences this summer. Thanksto partnerships with day-camp providers Eagle Lake Camps and Heartland Camps, just over 1,400 elementary-aged students experienced camp at a local United Methodist church. Two overnight camps at Heit's Point in Lincoln hosted nearly 600 students for multi-night, sleepaway camp experiences. Lastly, 286 students traveled with groups from their local church to a service camp or mission trip hosted by YouthWorks and NextSteps.
