Our 2017 summer camps are in the process of growing to be amazing experiences for spiritual growth and leadership development for children, youth, and adults! This coming year, we have a great variety of summer camp options being hosted at Mingus Mountain Methodist Camp and Retreat Center (outside of Prescott, AZ) and Potosi Pines Methodist Camp (outside of Las Vegas, NV). You can get more information, or register now, by visiting our site at www.dsccamps.org.
Among our many options for camp this summer are several exciting and/or new opportunities you might not be aware of. These include:
- Younger Elementary Camps, for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade, are offered at each camp site. At Potosi, campers get their first taste of what overnight camp without mom and dad will be like; at Mingus, parent(s) stay the nights with their child(ren), experiencing camp side-by-side with their little campers.
- Sr High Leadership Camp is a new experience at Mingus Mountain this coming summer. A small camp of 14 youth will work with adults to learn and grow as leaders, integrating service with other children with lessons on leadership from the Disney Leadership Institute.
- Adventure Camps, for both Middle and High School Youth, are back this summer at Potosi Pines. Over the course of these weeks, campers engage in hiking, cooking outdoors, and more!
- Horse Camp (at Mingus) returns for its second year! Elementary and Middle School aged youth, entering grades 5 through 8, are invited to join us for a week of camp that includes introductions to horsemanship including horse care and riding.

Camp and Retreat Ministries are a vital place for the discipleship growth and leadership development of children, youth, and adults.
