Youth & Outdoor Ministries


Welcome to the Youth and Outdoor Ministries of our Conference!

We proudly offer our summer camps that offer faith exploration for children, youth, and adults!

Camp Tamarack is in the high Sierras, east of Fresno. When the snow melts at over 7,000 feet, Camp Tam is revealed.  Tent cabins, a lodge, fire bowl, worship area, grassy meadow, lakes close by, and propane lighting make for an amazing, rustic experience! Our Camp Cook, Kymberly, is always guaranteed to cook up delicious meals for all to enjoy! Check out photos on our Facebook pages.

The weeks at camp vary, but they typically include:

  • small-group discussions on a scripture-based theme for the week
  • a Talent/No Talent Show for campers to show off their skills, skits, jokes, or none-of-the-above
  • daily evening worship services
  • hiking in stunning forests
  • swimming
  • games and sports
  • arts and crafts
  • dance parties

Each week is an opportunity to praise and explore our Still Speaking God, nature & Creation, with friends both familiar and new.

This year, Camp Tamarack will be implementing COVID-19 precautions and regulations based on CDC, American Camp Association, and Fresno County Dept. of Health guidelines.

Regular Registration Rate: $280.00

Making Camp more affordable: Many churches offer “camperships”, a scholarship specifically to come join camp — ask your church! The Conference also has a small campership fund. For information about an NCNC campership, call Davena Jones at 510-359-7208 or email her.

We invite all our community to understand more about Youth events and Camps through our Youth Ministry Policies 2015
