JULY 3-28, 2017 



York City Day Camp, a Christian-based camp program, is preparing for the 2017, 4-week summer camp for children entering grades 1 through 6.  Children will meet at Messiah United Methodist Church, 1300 N Beaver Street in North York.  

The vision of the camp is to share Jesus with children from York City and beyond while providing a structured and nurturing environment for 8 hours each weekday beginning July 3 through 28, 2017.  

The goals of the day camp are to develop a Christian community among the campers, to experience weekly field trips to community parks and public places for recreation and to learn life skills that will serve them throughout their lives.


An Open House and Fry Bread fundraiser will be held at Messiah UMC at 1300 North Beaver St. on Friday, May 19th from 4-7:00 pm.  


Campers are under the direction of Lena Cordero, paid director and assistants who are also certified school teachers. Volunteer counselors complete the staff and are trained and supervised by the director.   

Registration materials may also be accessed through the Messiah UMC website beginning May 1st
