UMC Mingus Mountain Camp

 

The United Methodist Desert Southwest Conference offers summer camp at Mingus Mountain Camp and Retreat Center and Potosi Pines.

Mingus Mountain is closest to Paradise Valley United Methodist Church in the Prescott National Forest. At an elevation of 7,600 feet, the camp offers an amazing mountaintop experience. NEW in 2018 is an overnight tent camping experience for 5th and 6th graders.

Campers explore the wonder of Creation and love of God as they take part in a variety of camp activities. In addition, this year we re-introduce a night of tent camping for 5th and 6th-grade campers! Campers will go “over the hill” for a special campfire and to spend the night in our open-air tents.
