    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    Conference Council on Youth Ministry (CCYM)

    Conference Council on Youth Ministries

    CCYM (Conference Council on Youth Ministries) is a leadership team comprised of youth from throughout the Upper New York Conference. With the support of adult coordinators each youth works through a team of their choice to design and present events to help guide youth on their personal spiritual journey. 

    This group of young people in grade 7-12 have the opportunity to express themselves and make new friends. They are welcomed with open arms and accepted and loved. Not only are they a leadership team, but a family joined by the everlasting bonds of friendship.

    Fall Events

    Due to COVID-19 (what isn’t so far this year?), rather than large meetings of the youth and youth workers of the UNYC, CCYM is sponsoring Work Days at each of our Camp/Retreat Centers in October.

    Masks are required for all attendees. Social distancing is required between youth groups but within youth groups is up to their leader. Cost is $20/per person and includes lunch. Each Work Day will begin at 10:00 AM and will include worship and fun along with helping out each of our wonderful Camp & Retreat Centers. The day will close with worship and end around 4:00.

    Check the information below and decide which Date/Location your youth would like to attend. Numbers are limited, but if you’d like us to consider an alternate date/location, “just in case,” please note that on the registration form.
