This year, first time campers can register for $85 for a full week of spiritual development, friendships, and fun. Highland Park Youth Camp is for the young person who is not quite sure what all this “God stuff” is about, for the person who wants a deeper relationship with God but doesn’t know where to start, and for the Christ follower who gives away God’s grace and love to others.

Highland Park Youth Camp has been in operation in Sellersville, PA since 1935, and strives to spread the word of the gospel through its yearly camp meetings. From July 31 through August 7, 2016, campers will stay overnight, and take part in daily afternoon and evening recreation, engaging bible studies with peers, nightly devotions led by their counselors, and evening services, featuring powerful messages delivered by our Guest Evangelist. New campers often make life-long friends at Highland Park, and learn about fellowship through Christ. Put Highland Park on your calendar now, and don’t miss out on what will be one of the most memorable weeks of your summer!
