Vision Statement

We envision campers seeing Christ as the answer, getting an opportunity to know Him better through

church services, worship, small groups, and activities. Students are to love God and each other as Christ

has loved us, and to impact those around them with His love.

Mission statement

Our mission is to reach out to campers age 11-18, providing a place of fellowship and growth where we

can connect with God, with each other, with churches, and the community. We exist to equip young

people to develop a deeper relationship with Christ, encourage uplifting relations with other Christian,

and empower life-changing relationships with non-believers. We believe that the experience that a

camper, counselor, volunteer, and staff receives during the week of Barbourville Pentecostal Youth

Camp will send them home as exceptional, Godly men and women of integrity who will transform their

homes, their schools, their churches, their workplaces, and their world for Christ. Barbourville

Pentecostal Youth Camp is an engaging and welcoming community for its youth and workers.
