Spring Rally /
Here for Scioto Youth Camp on Facebook
As long as we
can remember, there has been a Spring Rally.
Sadly, the attendance has been
declining in recent years. In most
families, both parents (& a
lot of teens) work and they are
busy with sports/school/church
activities. Don't get us wrong,
SYC still needs your financial
support, but our actual fund
raisers will be a little
We will be
putting together themed baskets
IE. game night, OSU, bath &
beauty, kids craft, etc. They will
be displayed in the Dining Hall at
camp, bidding will close each
Friday and the winners announced
during Chapel. Baskets can then be
picked up on Saturday when parents
return. If you would like to
donate an item (or a whole basket)
that'd be wonderful!
We are also
planning a Fall
Reunion at camp with a
fun run, games, food, tees, crafts
and more. This will give our young
people one last opportunity to
spend time together before winter
shutdown in October.
If you have
questions about upcoming work
days, giving, basket raffle or
Fall Reunion please contact one of
the Board Members.
Also, we are
in need of workers... kitchen
staff, nurse, shepherds, janitor,
etc. If you are available to help
please contact the appropriate
Director (see applications for
contact info) or a Board Member.
Staff must have application with
references and obtain a background
check if staying overnight.
Reverend & Mrs. Herbert Householder donated a
wooded hillside near Junction City to the United
Brethren In Christ Church for use as a campground. For
over 60 years this campground has been used as a free
summer camp for children of all ages. Over the years
it has been a starting point for children to learn
about, receive, rely on, and serve Christ throughout
their lives. The camp has been known as a great place
for individuals to find life long Christian friends.
Even some marriages have come from these friendships.
Many have returned as adults with their children and
grandchildren to work and volunteer their time as
cooks, teachers, nurses, shepherds, pianists, song
leaders, camp directors & ministers. Reverend
Householder's vision was to keep this facility free of
charge for any child that wanted to spend a week at a
Christian summer camp. It is our mission to keep that
vision alive. We have only been able to do this
through the continued donations of time and financial
support from concerned and caring individuals. We
appreciate all the support you have given us and will
greatly appreciate any support you can give us in the
future. Thank you very much and may God bless you.

Brief History of Scioto Youth Camp
SYC budget runs about
$60,000 a year.
Funding for the camp now comes
completely and directly from individuals,
Churches. Any money for the
camp will need to be sent
directly to the camp.
Youth Camp would like to thank everyone
for your support in the past. With this
change in funding policy we hope you will
remember the camp in your personal and in
your Church financial planning. As
mentioned above we want to keep SYC a free
camp for any child that wants to attend.
Thank you and may God bless.
