Who Comes to SYC?

IMG_1558Our staff consists of dedicated adults who make the journey to Lake Murray each summer from Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, & as far away as North Carolina.  A significant portion of our staff have been working together for several years and take their vacation time to share the Christ life.

Our Campers come from rural, urban and suburban congregations including Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, and North Carolina.  Campers are encouraged to bring their friends and each year we have several campers who have minimal or no church background.  In addition, we generally have campers who are in foster care or from children’s homes.

Here are some of the places campers live in recent years: Oklahoma: Edmond, Ada, Wayne, Ardmore, Chickasha • Arizona: Phoenix • Texas: Dallas, Irving, Houston, Athens, Pilot Point, Winters, Abilene, Stamford, McKinney and more.

SYC is a camp where you can make forever friends from so many places.  It is an opportunity to experience the kingdom of God and all it’s diversity.  SYC does not discriminate with regards to ethnicity or religious preference.  We strive to be a Christ centered camp in all we say and do.

    I am 49 years old, when I was a teenager I attended ‘Dear Ol Sooner Youth Camp’, and it helped me as a young lady holding onto Christ. Just this weekend I passed through Ardmore and told my 17
    Year old daughter my memories of SYC. Thank you for the guidance all those years ago that have helped me prepare a God loving, God serving family. Thank you again. Melissa Clark (Massey, back in the day:-)
