The Oklahoma Camping ministry is excited to present a new program for local churches.

Mobile Day Camp offers churches an opportunity to explore a camping experience for their community. Your church will have the benefits of a fun-filled camp experience for your membership as well as the opportunity to meet your community.

The program is created to reach out to children ages 7-12 and is offered during the months of June and July.

What is truly unique about this program is that it is facilitated by young adult college students with United Methodist affiliations. These young adults are recruited and trained especially by our Oklahoma Camp and Retreat Ministries office.

The information on this page explains how the program works and how your church can bring this ministry to your church next summer.

Mobile Day Camp FAQs

Mobile Day Camp is designed to be an extension of our OK Camps camping program that will go out into local churches to run a week-long day camp program. Our vision is that we would have strategic partnerships with the churches we work with to develop adult and teen leaders and reach new people and new communities. A team of college students will arrive at a different church each week to deliver this program along with the help of local church volunteers.

Camp will take place Monday–Friday from 9 a.m.–4 p.m.

To recruit campers and volunteers, feed and house staff, provide outdoor space with electricity and water access, offer enough meeting spaces for up to eight small groups, and provide one large group gathering area.

Approximately four or five, depending on how many people each family can host. We will have 14-15 staff that need to be housed. Ideally, each host home will provide a place for at least three camp staff to sleep. Host families will also feed the staff dinner most nights and provide some quick and easy breakfast food.

Our staff will arrive on a Saturday evening and stay through the following Saturday morning for a total of seven nights.

Each site will need a group of adult and teen volunteers to check-in campers every day, travel through rotations with a group of campers, prepare lunch for the staff, and host a staff get-together at their home. Contact the Mobile Day Camp, Team Administrator for the camp you wish to volunteer for more information.

Absolutely! We strongly encourage churches to work together to make day camp happen. Families from multiple congregations can bring their kids to camp, offer to house our staff, volunteer during camp, serve lunch, etc.
