Camp in the Community

About Camp in the Community

Camp in the Community (CITC) is a ministry of Holston Conference Camp and Retreat Ministries. It is a week-long day camp program for children in poverty. The camp operates in partnership with a host church located in an impoverished community, alongside a sponsor church in the Holston Conference. We provide a high-quality summer camp experience to those who could not otherwise afford to attend summer camp.

This is for the purpose of sharing the gospel in a tangible way, and developing lasting relationships between the community and the church. In addition to reaching children in poverty, the program works with area youth to develop them as leaders in the church. Youth are provided leadership and childcare training and serve as assistant counselors.
