Summer Mission/retreat or Passport Camp
The summer after their 6th grade year, St. John Youth may attend Passport Camp for a week of intentional Bible study and a meaningful hands-on mission project or further spiritual growth. Activities include worship, group devotions, and a nightly party.
The registration deposit is usually due Nov. 1 with the balance payable by June 1. St. John MYF holds fundraisers during the year to help defray camp costs. Youth planning to attend camp are required to participate in the St. John MYF spring mission projects or parking fundraisers.
