2021 Camp Crystal Summer Schedule

January 26, 2021 Published by Neil Topliffe

Dates have been set for our youth and Family summer camps in 2021. Planning is underway, including a renewed Day Camp with a VBS theme that also allows for family members to reserve lodging at the same time to add family activities in the afternoon and evening. 

Crystal Commission is monitoring carefully the Covid-19 impact upon our program even as it and UCCR, summer Crystal Conference Center managers, prepare for a safe carrying out Covid-19 protocols.  Camp brochures and posters now are available at for you to publicize camps in your church and with friends.

Reservations already are being made for families and small church groups or organizations for this summer. Cedar Lodge now is available for groups all summer, from Memorial Day weekend through early October. So also are Pioneer Lodge (priority to ministers) and Missions House. When our summer camps aren’t on site, housing also will be available in Oaks and some of the dormitories.
