Young Adults’ Work Day at Mingus Camp

Join us on the last Saturday in April at Mingus Camp and Retreat Center in Prescott, AZ for a workday. The PVUMC YAL (Young Adult Lifegroup) has planned a working weekend at Camp Mingus, Saturday, April 27, 2019. The UMC Conference camp needs your help to get ready for their summer camps. Grab a friend of two and join us for a day trip that includes both hands-on service and fun activities. Lunch is covered! Leave at 7 am and return about 9 pm the same day. 

Painting, cleaning and more. To commit, or for more information or to carpool, email Rev. Brenda Smith.

Young Adults are invited to work as camp counselors too!

Camp Scholarship Fund

It costs $350 to send a child to camp on a scholarship. Thanks to your generosity, several children from UMOM New Day Centers have had the opportunity to experience camp, which can be life-changing. Children and youth who have never been out of the city have a chance to breath fresh air and experience nature. Mingus Camp’s faith-based camp curriculum merges how we see God in creation, and how we care for creation and each other.

Any donations will support scholarships for children and teen cabin assistants, as well as programming. Donate at GIVE NOW and include “Mingus Scholarship Fund.” Thank you for your generosity.


Mingus Camp Encounter at Central UMC

Churches in the Phoenix area are invited to Central UMC from 7-8:30 pm on April 4 for an evening of Mingus Mountain Camp experiences benefiting the Children and Youth Scholarship Fund! A Mingus Mountain Camp Encounter includes life-changing testimonies, skits, music, and photos. You’re invited to join us around the campfire (simulated) at Kendall Hall, Central United Methodist Church, 1875 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85004, as we enjoy cookies, hot cocoa, and s’mores! Close your eyes and you might be able to see the night sky as it’s seen up at Mingus! Make an online donation directly to Camping Ministries or donate at the event in support of the Children and Youth Scholarship Fund.
