Arizona Youth & Children Ministry exists to provide Christian Education opportunities for the youth and children of the Arizona Region.  Much of this is done through Retreats and Camps.  Our youth volunteers from around the state come together to provide two weekends and one week a year of fellowship and fun for all three of our age groups.  Children and Youth grades three through twelve have a chance to come together each Fall and Spring for the weekend retreats to discuss the themes and relate them to current events in their life and their communities.  Camp gives them a week away from their day to day summer routines.  It’s a chance to cool off and relax in the mountains of Prescott, to worship in nature, team build and enjoy the many activities that our staff as well as the camp provide.
