Summer Camp can be a life changer in spiritual formation of children and youth.

We have several children and youth in our congregation that desire to go to Ashbury Hills Summer Camp. Our goal is to raise $4,500 by June 1st. The average cost per camper is $520, with the church providing 80% and the camper providing 20% for active children/youth from our congregation. Will you or your small group help financially by contributing to our Camp Scholarship Fund? Thank you for your support and for making a difference in the lives of our children and youth!

Summer camp at Asbury Hills is all about fun, faith, and fellowship.

 Form new friendships with cabin mates and counselors
 Participate in a variety of age-appropriate activities
 Deepen faith with small-group devotions
 Experience powerful worship

Because of these things, we see powerful results in our campers each summer.

 96% grew in their relationship with Christ.
 98% tried something new.
 98% want to tell others what they learned at camp.
 96% learned something new about faith.

Asbury Hills is a part of SC Camps and Retreat Ministries and a ministry of the South Carolina United Methodist Conference.
