Virtual Camp Day

United Methodist Camp Retreat Ministries offer a Virtual Day Camp.  This is a free resource and growing website with United Methodist camp staff contributors from right here in the Desert Southwest as well as the rest of the country. This website is designed to be a fun, life-affirming, positive and faith-filled place for campers of all ages. Some of the available sessions are suitable for the camper to participate on their own and there are some sessions which are great for the whole family.  Click here to join in the fun: Virtual Day Camp
