RECAP OF SIMPSON COUNTY YOUTH CAMP 2023 @ Taylor Christian Camp!!!

Simpson County Youth Camp at Taylor Christian Camp has been held annually since the summer of 1986.  So - the 2023  edition of SCYC was officially the 36th year (because 2020 was cancelled).

SCYC welcomed 90 young men, 83 young women, and 62 staff members to the cabins and lodge of Taylor Christian!  WE HAD A 99% FULL CAMP THIS YEAR - IT WAS A RECORD YEAR!!

It was a little bit of a rough week due to the weather.  We had a lot of rain during the week, but it didn't dampen our spirits or our plans to having a great week of camp.  We managed and made the proper adjustments to keep everyone on task.  

During the week - the kids enjoyed time with one another, fun and games, and lots of learning (either in Bible class or during devotionals) about the chosen theme of the week - CHOSEN.  Our theme verse for the week was taken from 1 Peter 2:9.  

Follow up lesson  can be found here at this link: Parent Follow Up Devos 7-12.docx - Google Drive

The highlight for the week of camp is always the glorious site of kids giving their lives to Christ by being baptized!  We had eighteen baptisms either at camp or since our return home.  We want to congratulate and encourage our new brothers and sisters in Christ.

Welcome our new brothers and sisters in Christ!!
