Youth Adventure Camp

Youth Adventure Camp

Six days and five nights in the remote and beautiful north central Pennsylvania, Youth Adventure Camp (YAC) is an experience like none other for junior and senior high students.

June 17-22, 2024


Unplugged from the distractions of daily life and surrounded by God’s creation, teens have the chance to try their hands (and feet) at adventurous activities such as rock climbing, rappelling, and high and low ropes courses while growing deeper in relationship with the God who created and loves them more than any other.


YAC is open to all students going into 7th grade through graduated seniors – from any background and any denomination (or none at all!).


 Held at the beautiful Penn-York Camp in Ulysses, PA, YAC brings together as many as 120 teens for an experience dedicated to growing spiritually in our Christian faith – and having a total blast with new and old friends while we do it.

Each day begins early with group activities including high and low ropes courses, large and small group games, rock climbing, and rappelling, and ends with a rockin’ worship service, crazy late night activities, and cabin devotions.

All activities are designed for maximum fun while promoting character building, teamwork, and trust among campers. Learning more about the love of God and growing in relationship with Him permeates every activity at YAC – whether it’s navigating the high ropes course, conquering the space monkey’s web, or hiking at Rimrock.
