Youth Summer Ministry (YSM): During a week-long mission experience, junior and high school students complete home repair projects or serve as mentors in Day Camp. We mix up the groups in the camp community to create Youth Renewal Groups (YRGs) so participants have the opportunity to further broaden their horizons by meeting others from across the country. Our daily schedule is built around times of work and rest with four times to intentionally pause and turn our attention to the Lord. Through individual devotional time, small group discussions, and corporate worships, participants have the opportunity to connect the “what” and “why of service. YSM is offered for 7 weeks during the summer.

Service Project: Service Projects could include building porches, wheelchair ramps, sheds, painting, and yard work. This work represents a physical sense of hope as we improve the safety and health of a family’s home. As we focus on alleviating substandard housing, we can make small contributions to a family’s well-being by providing safe entries and exits, preserving resources, and creating healthier environments.

Day Camp: Day Camp is a place to spread hope. It is an environment where children ages 6-11 years-old come to be loved and challenged in a safe, positive community. Youth and adults spend a week with Grundy County children participating in activities that will allow them to explore a Bible story and character trait each day. Participants will have the opportunity to help children learn about the environment, community service, health, and local entrepreneurship.

  • Quest: Quest is an adventure style camp for teenagers who live in Grundy County. Mountain T.O.P’s  goal is to provide an experience where youth are able to explore character building through challenging events such as rock climbing and ropes course elements.

  • Summer Plus: Summer Plus provides local teenagers an opportunity to have fun in a Christian environment while learning or experiencing something new. The idea of being co-creators with Christ stands behind what happens at Summer Plus.

  • Kaleidoscope: Kaleidoscope is a visual and performing arts camp for children with intellectual disabilities. Participants lead or assist in workshops of fine arts specialties, including: painting, drawing, dance, music and drama.
