Camp and District Join Together for Youth Ministry

Hello! My name is Amanda Helfrich and I am the new District Youth Coordinator for a joint ministry between Camp Blue Diamond and the Middle PA District. We believe our ministry is more effective if we work together to reach youth across the district, which is why we created DCYM (District and Camp Youth Ministry). Our goal is to provide meaningful, spiritually fulfilling experiences throughout the year as we connect youth from all corners of the district. I’m really excited about this opportunity to connect with you and would love to see you at these upcoming events!

Washington D.C. Soup Kitchen Trip: April 25 - 28
Youth Camp at CBD: July 8 - 14
Summer Splash at Raystown Waterslides: July 11
