The Mission of YCL Ministries is to provide a setting for Christians of all ages to experience God, mature in their faith, and develop a servant’s heart to serve in their communities.

In the hectic pace of today’s world, families need a place where they can grow in their relationships with each other and God. Church leaders need a place where they can seek God’s direction and develop plans to advance the Kingdom or conduct a youth camp, church retreat or small-group spiritual enrichment session. 

YCL Ministries provides a family-safe, spiritually-rich environment where families, churches, and leadership teams can find hope and encouragement to continue in God’s will.  Families may arrange to have a family reunion, wedding, or get-away.  Pastors and church leaders may arrange to conduct their own youth camp or retreat.  Our recreational options, which include a large recreation field and a beach on the southwest bank of Yellow Creek Lake, add to the overall experience.  Visit our General Information page and the other pages in the FACILITIES tab to find information about the facilities, prices and reservation contact.  Click on the REQUEST INFO tab for more detailed reservation and pricing information or for directions to the YCL campground.

YCL provides churches the opportunity for their youth to experience a concentrated time of seeking God's direction for their lives through our youth camps program.  Thousands of individuals can trace critical moments of spiritual decision to their days in a youth camp experience at YCL.  While most churches cannot afford to provide such an experience on their own, YCL uses the shared vision of the Indiana North Association of the Church of God to ensure that every local church has access to our youth camp ministry.  Information about our summer camps is available by clicking on the CAMPING tab. There you will find a description for each camp, dates and pricing, contact information and a downloadable registration form.  If you have already determined the camp to be attended, a registration form can be downloaded by clicking on the Youth Camp Registration Form icon on this page.



From the beginning in 1897, a camp meeting experience has been an essential part of the YCL Ministries Campground.  YCL Ministries continues this tradition and believes that such an experience remains an important part of spiritual growth in the church.  We really do need each other, and the activities at an annual camp meeting help us support one another and advance the Kingdom together.  Detailed information about the annual camp meeting is available by visiting our Camp Meeting page.
