Every teen that goes to camp has someone who will walk through life with them after camp - that's what makes YFC Camp unique.

We are prepping and praying for an amazing Summer 2019!

We create an environment that invites God to transform the lives of young people through shared experiences, outdoor challenges, and times of solitude. The goal? To draw students to the heart of God within the context of authentic relationships and memorable learning experiences that last beyond a week and into a lifetime. Welcome to YFC Camp!

About YFC Camp for Tacoma Area Youth for Christ

“We want every kid in Tacoma who wants to go to Camp, to have a chance to go to Camp” – Myron Bernard, Ministry Director at Tacoma Area Youth for Christ

Why YFC Camp?

What makes YFC Camp different from other camps? At YFC Camp, we focus on the long-term investment in youth. Every kid that goes to YFC Camp has a leader who will walk through life with them long-term… and we are committed to that.

Sending Kids to Camp:

At Tacoma Area Youth for Christ, the majority of our kids come from some of the toughest places both financially and spiritually. Our desire is to send every kid to camp who wants to go to camp and that is why we invite YOU to join with US in this vision. We invite YOU, your CHURCH, your BUSINESS, or maybe even your SMALL GROUP to sponsor 1 kid to camp this summer.
