Big Problem, Bigger God

Camp Yorktown Bay Goes Virtual
August 18, 2020

MOUNTAIN PINE, ARK. – No summer camp? That had never happened before at Camp Yorktown Bay! But due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, there would be no in-person camp in 2020. But with campers already signed up, our camp staff came together to offer a virtual summer camp themed “Big Problem...Bigger God.”

With 140 campers, the week began with campers assigned to virtual cabins. They were able to enjoy morning and evening worship through livestream channels each day. We had daily activities each day led by camp staff and guest instructors. There was even a week-long cabin challenge. Campers performed challenges throughout the week and earned points for their cabin. These 107 different challenges ranged from making a cardboard boat to sharing what they learned from the pastor’s evening messages.

We thank God for a memorable week, and we pray and look forward to being together in person next summer at Camp Yorktown Bay.
