Beloved Camp Parent/Guardian,
Camp Three Holy Youths is pleased to announce the updated 2021 Summer Camp Dates.
Camp THY will be having in person camp in accordance to the American Camping Association Standards (ACA). In any case that we cannot meet this summer, an alternative camp will be provided as a hybrid with a mixture of online and in person events.
Our mission still remains the same. To provide growth in a Christian Lifestyle through Fellowship, Spirituality, & Worship. We will continue to begin & end our days with Prayers together.

My dearly beloved, the reason we are able to keep camper costs so low are due to the generous donations of members of St. Nicholas Church, its parishioners, and other churches.

You are in our constant prayers for health and safety.
