Simpson County Youth Camp
SIMPSON COUNTY YOUTH CAMP 2022 @ Taylor Christian Camp!!!
Simpson County Youth Camp at Taylor Christian Camp has been held annually since the summer of 1986. So - the 2022 edition of SCYC was officially the 35th year (because 2020 was cancelled).
SCYC welcomed 65 young men, 45 young women, and 42 staff members to the cabins and lodge of Taylor Christian!
It was a little bit of a rough week due to some of the heat and humidity that greeted us almost everyday. But - we managed and made the proper adjustments to keep everyone on task and healthy. We kept the kids - and adults - hydrated, rested, and properly feed. Along the way - we had a few bumps and bruises, but no major injuries. We had to send a couple of campers and staff members home due to upset stomachs, nausea, and unfortunately - Steve had to come home due to testing positive for Covid. After we found out his diagnosis - we made sure we followed all the proper protocols to keep everyone else happy and healthy.
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 - GO FOR GOLD. Our theme verse for the week was taken from Philippians 3:13-14. Today - you will get to enjoy and hear about what the kids and adults were taught because Eli will be sharing a follow-up lesson with all of us during worship today.
The highlight for the week of camp is always the glorious site of kids giving their lives to Christ by being baptized! We had eleven baptisms either at camp or since our return home. We want to congratulate and encourage our new brothers and sisters in Christ.

We are sad that camp is over, but we are also happy to be home. Camp takes a lot of work and the planning for 2023 has already begun! We want to thank our church family for all of the prayers, contributions (physically and monetarily), and especially the parents for entrusting us with your kids.
