About Virtual

Summer CAMP

Come hang with old camp friends and make new ones! CYB Virtual Summer Camp will take place on June 22-26th, 2020. It is designed for campers between the ages of 8-17. We will have two distinct age brackets and programs. Ages 8-12 will be in one bracket group and ages 13-17 will be in the other. Campers will be assigned "Virtual Cabins" where they will be assigned cabin mates to form teams for specific activity challenges throughout the week. Some of your favorite CYB Staff members will be here to lead you in activities. We also will have special instructors and activities where you can earn certain honors and patches for pathfinders. There will be cool prizes and rewards! Register for free below to unlock the full capabilities of Virtual Camp. All zoom links, passwords, and daily information will be sent to registrant email and won't be posted publicly.

Mock Schedule

We are still working on the final daily camp schedule for the week but this gives you an idea of what it might look like. Final schedules will be emailed to the email you use to register for virtual camp.

THEME

Our theme is "Big  Problem...Bigger GOD!" We chose this theme before this pandemic and it only seems appropriate for this virtual camp. Campers will learn that Jesus is the solution to every problem we could ever encounter. He wants to carry our burdens for us and give us rest! Join us for our daily morning and evening worships to hear great devotionals on this theme.

Campers between the ages of 8-17 can register for virtual camp. We will have two different age bracket groups so that campers will be more comfortable and have relevant activities. The first age bracket group is ages 8-12. The second group is for ages 13-17.




How much does it cost to register?


Virtual camp is free of charge. We simply leave families the option to donate any amount they choose as a "thank you". Again, this is not required, just a option for families. Donation button is below on this page.




Do I have to belong to the Arkansas-Louisiana Conference in order to participate?


No, our CYB virtual camp propgram is for campers from all over. We would be happy to have you join us.




Will my camper be sitting in front of the computer for 8 hours?

CYB VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMP

We wanted to find a way to connect and be a blessing to our campers and families this summer. Virtual camp provides us with that opportunity. We don't know how you have been affected with this pandemic, so we wanted to provide this ministry free of charge to you. We hope this virtual camp is a blessing to you. We definitely want to provide you with a high quality experience and therefore we have kept a small number of staff to help us. We also have materials and equipment expenses for this program. If you are a family that is blessed enough to be able to donate something to help us offset the expenses for this virtual summer camp ministry, please consider donating, even a small amount helps. Just click the donate button below and you will see an option to give to "Camp Yorktown Bay". We thank you & appreciate you!"
