Youth Summer Ministry

 

Youth Summer Ministry

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

Participants complete home repair projects to improve the safety and sustainability of the homes. These may include porches, wheelchair ramps, painting, roofing, siding, or yard work – each project resulting from an expressed need.


Day Camp

During the summer, Mountain TOP runs four different day camps that serve children from the ages of 6 to 17. Participants will have the opportunity to help children learn about the environment, community service, health and local entrepreneurship. Each day the children and volunteers have a devotional time where they talk about the theme for the day and work in their prayer journals.

SHC

New in 2019, a program just for senior high students! SHC is a smaller capacity program that allows groups to stay together for their service work. With all the worship components of Mountain T.O.P.’s other programs, participants in SHC will have the opportunity to do larger scale home repair projects—based on the group’s skill level—and one of three specialized day camp programs.

NHN

The vision of Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN) is to provide an affordable mission experience for youth groups that are regional or small in size. The program provides a blend of home repair, worship, and overnight camp experience. 

Youth and adults spend 3 days completing minor home repair projects in the community. Projects can be anything from constructing a porch or shed to painting or doing basic yard work. On the worksite, YRGs are encouraged to sit and spend time with the family they are working with throughout the day, inviting them to join the group for lunch, devotional, and any time of prayer.
