Camps and Missions

Central Oklahoma District Camp – Students from throughout the Oklahoma City metropolitan area meet together to learn about Christ and experience nature.  Canyon Camp, near Hinton, is the site for this yearly outing and provides an excellent facility. JEM and CYME Camps provide leadership training for Youth of all ages.   Youth serve in many capacities within the local church.  They work in the nursery, help lead The Landing – Children’s Church, share in worship, serve as lay leaders and lay speakers and on committees,  as well as volunteering for many special events.

Youth Missions

All Christians are called to be in service. Full immersion service mission work can be life changing. Village UMC Youth support two mission camps each summer. Youth Force is a local mission experience that meets for a week within our state. A construction ministry, Youth Force groups youth and adults from a variety of churches to provide improvements for elderly and disabled people. This camp is open to students entering 7th grade through graduated high school seniors.

Appalachia Service Project becomes a part of the communities in the Appalachia Mountains they work in for the entire summer. Taking on large construction projects, ASP works for seven weeks to make home Warmer, Safer and Drier. Because of the maturity required to enter into another culture, students are required to be entering 9th grade through graduated high school seniors. The students that travel from Village UMC work together on the job sites for 1 week.

Participants for both trips are expected to take part in training sessions, as well as pay a portion of their expenses as a show of Christian witness. The trips are subsidized through fund raising. No student will be excluded due to inability to contribute financially.
