    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church

    about / Camp and Retreat Ministry (CRM)

    Camping Vlog

    Each year, thousands of people spend time at one of the Upper New York Camp & Retreat Ministry locations, including Aldersgate, Asbury, Casowasco, Sky Lake, and Skye Farm. It's hard to measure the full impact, but the testimonials from those who have attended for a few days, weeks, or even a month provide the real data of how spending time at one of these Camp & Retreat Centers can be life-changing.

    From the campers on up to the counselors, each experience provides a unique opportunity for interaction, the ability to grow mentally and spiritually, while developing life-long friendships, and, most importantly, embracing the love of Christ. Watch the Upper New York Conference vlog series, Calls from Camp, which aims to capture the spirit of camp and hear the testimonials that showcase why the Upper New York Camp & Retreat Ministry is so special.
