WHAT IS CENTRAL ARKANSAS YOUTH CAMP?
We hope you take the opportunity to pause for a moment and see what Central Arkansas Youth Camp can do in the life of a child. Today’s youth are growing up in a different world than we did. We believe our youth need a solid foundation on which to build a strong future. We believe there is no other foundation on which to build but our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We invite you to come alongside in whatever way God leads you. Central Arkansas Youth Camp is a one week, Christ focused, overnight, summer camp for youth ages 9-18. The primary purpose is to give kids the opportunity to spend a week away from everyday life to focus on the most important aspect of life. We use class time, team games, directed activities and individual mentoring to give the gospel of Jesus Christ, to build one another up in the faith and to instruct one another in the Word of God. Camp is held in July at Camp Beaverfork just North of Conway, Arkansas. CAYC is Non-denominational. The staff is made up entirely of unpaid volunteers who gladly give of their time and resources to give a child hope and encouragement. CAYC started in 2008. In our first camp, we had 34 campers and 8 staff members. By 2016 we had grown to 172 campers and numerous volunteers. Our goal is to partner with local churches, individuals, businesses, and other organizations to make camp available for all kids, regardless of their situation, free of charge. No one need pay for camp if they do not have the resources. It is our desire to ensure that kids, churched or un-churched, may come to camp without obligation. This year we recognized the need to incorporate. We were unable to use the name "Central Arkansas Youth Camp," as it was similar to another local organizations’ name. At length, we decided on Farther Along Ministries Inc. We are now incorporated as a 501c3 tax exempt organization. All gifts are tax deductible. All donations to Farther Along Ministries Inc. are used for Central Arkansas Youth Camp. Jeremy, Elaine, Lori, and I would like to thank you for taking the time to learn more about Central Arkansas Youth Camp, which is now incorporated as Farther Along Ministries Inc. While we did start CAYC, we do not view it as ours. We believe it belongs entirely and completely to God. We prayerfully bend our will to His. We have invested our time and resources that He may accomplish His good and perfect will in the lives of every camper and every volunteer that is a part of this amazing ministry.
