UYC Camp Pinecrest
The Pinecrest Camp facility is located in the wooded, rolling hills of southeast Missouri. Twenty-one years’ of experience at this facility has allowed for the development of an activity-packed week filled with challenges for the mind and body.

Campers will practice teamwork and sharpen or develop new skills in speedaway, softball,  volleyball and ropes course. Other activities include archery, pickle ball, ultimate Frisbee, a Biblical class geared to teens, producing a camp newspaper, riflery, rock climbing and rappelling, swimming in an indoor pool and catapulting off “the blob” into the lake.

New to Pinecrest this year, we have added a dance class.

The dorms are comfortable and air-conditioned. The showers are hot (if you are an early riser), and the food is a camper’s dream— some of the best in the entire UYC program! All this for less than $40 per day!

United Youth Camps are more than just activities and comfort, and that understanding is central to the design of the Pinecrest program. We focus strongly on how to live in order to please our Creator. A Christian living class starts each day to help us live the Zone, an atmosphere that reflects the Kingdom of God. Each day will end with a review of our Christian living theme for the day along with skits and other activities. The schedule also includes plenty of quality fellowship time for everyone, along with a dance to close out the week.

Many of our highly qualified staff return year after year, gaining experience and growing in their ability to serve our campers. Our dedicated staff and exemplary campers create an environment where everyone comes together with a unique spirit of understanding and growth in godly character. The United Youth Camp experience creates a special esprit de corps unlike anything experienced outside God’s Church!

If you would like to join our staff, please note that staff workers must be 18 years of age or older and need the recommendation of their pastor. Every staff member must complete pre-camp training and make their Facebook page available for review. Some activities require specialized training or experience.

All campers should arrive Friday, June 23 by 4 PM, and will depart Friday,  June 30 by 10 AM.

Staff meetings on June 22 beginning at 4 PM at Pinecrest Camp.

Pinecrest Camp is located 100 miles south of St. Louis, near Fredericktown, Missouri. The St. Louis  airport is approximately two hours away. Transportation directly to Pinecrest Camp will be provided free of charge for those arriving by plane.
