IN OUR OWN BACKYARD SUMMER
INTERFAITH YOUTH CAMP:
Due to an extremely low number of applicants, this year's summer camp was cancelled.
We are excited to host In Our Own Backyard (IOOBY), a youth interfaith camp for high schoolers June 23 -26, 2021.
Every year we hold our interfaith summer camp experience for high-school aged youth in Mecklenburg County. The purpose of the camp is to bring youth together from different faiths, races and socioeconomic backgrounds to learn more about each other’s faith traditions and to serve area residents in need. Participants visit various social agencies, travel by city bus, visit different houses of faith for worship services and develop their own interfaith service on the last evening of the program. Attendees are eligible to join the MeckMIN youth council.
Join us as we work on service projects with organizations across the county, attend worship services at different houses of faith, build relationships and so much more!
