Monday – Thursday: 9:30 am & 6:30 pm

Welcome to BYC!

Believers Youth Camp 2022 will begin on July 2nd and continues through July 8th in Fortville, Indiana.  The theme is: “Born of God”

1 John 5:4 – For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even, our faith.

BYC is a week of camp-meeting for young people ages 10 and older. The purpose is to create an atmosphere where young people can grow their faith and come to have a personal experience with Jesus Christ as their Savior.  We have many activities scheduled already, including morning breakout sessions for the graduates again this year. If you have never attended BYC before, check out the photo page on the website to get a glimpse of past camp-meeting happenings. You might even see someone you already know! Also, check out the sermon archives from last year’s camp-meeting for some pre-camp encouragement.

A few changes have been made to the registration process this year to make it easier for you. You will find the link on the website for registering online. No longer will you need to print, fax, or send a screenshot of your forms; we have added online payment as an option as well. Be sure to mark your shirt size on the form, as each camper who is pre-registered will be given a camp shirt at check-in.

Lastly, remember to read the rules and plan to abide by them, and that includes (NO FIREWORKS).  Mark your calendar now and pass the website information on to your friends so they can register, too. Each year I hear comments such as, “we did not know about BYC until a friend of a friend told us about camp.” Make sure to spread the word and register early as camp will likely become full quickly.

BYC has a volunteer staff and we always have a need for leaders and workers to assist with the many duties of operating a week of camp. Skills needed include: kitchen prep, dishwashing, night watch (husband/wife teams,) janitorial, crafts, activity coordinators, dorm leaders, and more. For anyone interested in coming to camp as a worker or leader, please send an email to for more details.

For those planning to fly to camp: Fortville, Indiana is located about 45 minutes from the Indianapolis Airport. We offer shuttle service to/from the airport, but please let us know your flight itinerary via email as soon as possible to help us coordinate the number of shuttle vehicles/drivers that will be needed.

Camp preparations are already well underway; those Arizona lemons have been squeezed and frozen for the lemon shake-ups, menus are being planned, ministers are already preparing, activities are being scheduled, Believers are praying, and Brother Sonny is anxious to see everyone again. We ask you to be praying for the camp-meeting, that many will be “Born of God.”

See you soon.
