Join us at camp this fall!

Autumn is an unbelievably beautiful season at Pyoca, which is probably why the fall retreat season is always our busiest. We have been welcoming a number of churches, families, pastors, and non-profit groups over the past few weekends and we're just getting started!

There's a lot more to look forward to at camp this fall, including our UFO Quilt and Craft Retreat, the Fall Youth Retreat, the Jackson Co. 50/50 Ultramarathon, and many more guests in the coming weeks. Check out all that we have going on below! We would love to see you.

Upcoming Programs:

UFO Quilt & Craft Retreat: Oct. 27th - 31st

We are excited to welcome back quilters and crafters to Pyoca for our annual UFO Quilt & Craft Retreat. Bring all of your unfinished projects to camp for a fun weekend of sewing, crafting, and fellowship. Registration is now open!

Fall Youth Retreat: Nov. 19th - 21st

Join us this November for our annual Fall Youth Retreat, open to youth in grades 7 - 12. Reconnect with friends from camp and make new ones from all around our great state. Come explore, grow, rest, and play during one of the most beautiful seasons at Pyoca.
This year's retreat theme is Faith and Mental Health, and we are so excited to welcome our keynote speaker Rev. Wes Kendall, and welcome back Jeff Moles as our worship leader.

In addition to great worship and fellowship, we are looking forward to our Camp Carnival and Fall Fest on Saturday, Nov. 20th -- with carnival games and inflatable obstacle courses in the afternoon, plus a line dancing hoedown with s'mores and wagon rides in the evening.
Registration is now open and we can't wait to see you in November!

How You Can Support Camp: Pass It On

Pass It On. Like the beloved campfire song, we know that in order to pass on the magic of camp to the next generation, we need the support of friends of camp and previous generations who have been transformed by this ministry.
There are a number of ways to support our ministry, including: donations to our Scholarship and Annual Funds, volunteer opportunities, in-kind gifts through our Amazon Wish List, and more.

Want to learn more about what is happening at Pyoca? We encourage you to follow, like, and subscribe to our InstagramFacebook, YouTube, and blog pages where you can keep up with the latest information on all things camp.
