                                          CANYON CAMP

     The canyon rests at the bottom of a red sandstone
     canyon famous for its wide variety of trees and scenic
     wind-eroded walls.

     Canyon Camp and Conference Center
     is located in a series of five red-rock
     canyons near Hinton, Oklahoma. The
     camp has been designated a National
     Natural Landmark by the Department
     of the Interior.

     The lodge, comfortable meeting areas,
     meditation spots, hiking, challenge
     course and swimming make this the
     right camp and retreat place for many
     groups. The beauty of the red sandstone
     walls, the seeming isolation of the
     setting from the outside world and
     the convenience of a major city make
     Canyon the perfect place to gather.
     Only 45 minutes from Oklahoma City,
     the center offers easy access to I-40.

      Mountains, it is easy to feel God’s presence
      and enjoy the beauty of creation.

      Long before it was a retreat center, people
      camped here because of the richness
      of this area. Numerous fruit and nut
      trees, wild strawberries and onions were
      common here. In the early 1900’s, people
      would ride the train from Tahlequah and
      get off when the train would stop to fill
      the engine with water. They were free
      to fish all day until the train returned
      from Fayetteville to take them back to

                                This older elementary camp allows campers to fully participate in creative arts choices as they
                                express their unique gifts. Campers choose fine arts and movement classes they want to attend
                                and then share the gifts of vocal music, instrumental music, drama, dance, etc as they lead and
                                fully participate in creative worship. The joy of active learning and expressions of God’s gifts
                                within each camper is the focus of this camp.

                                Acknowledging the uniqueness of pre-teens, this camp for rising sixth graders is designed to
                                help “t’weeners” explore the concept that God is always with us. Using the natural settings of our
                                campsites, various group experiences, and scripture, campers are challenged to discover God in
                                the natural world, within themselves, in other campers and the community they form. This is
                                where campers will expand their world by interacting in cabins and small groups with adults and
                                peers from other churches.

      Wilderness Camp is a unique seven-day, six-night
      adventure in creating a Christian community while
      living in the out-of-doors. It is a challenging adventure
      to develop relational skills: listening to others, expressing
      your own needs/ideas, caring for others, and making
      inclusive group decisions. There are many things youth
      will learn in this outdoor experience, including community
      building, camping skills, and learning to care for
      creation. This year's theme "Room for us All" emphasizes
      inclusiveness, with a focus on bullying.

      This camp is limited to those who will be in the 7th or 8th
      grade in the fall of 2011 and limited to the first 32 youth
      who register.
