For many years, Camp Cho-Yeh has been a place where both youth and adults have grown in their faith and character. all dedicated to being safe, having fun, and helping people grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Mission-driven summer staff and full-time employees have been impacting live for 70 years. We are dedicated to safety, having fun, and helping people grow deeper in their understanding of the Gospel. Campers and retreat guests come from all walks of life, denominations, and other organizations to enjoy our unique activities.

Our mission:  To be a place where Jesus Christ transforms lives through meaningful relationships and outdoor adventures.

For 10 weeks each summer we bring in high quality college students to serve as role models and actively engage campers in faith-building conversations. Our desire is to meet young people where they are and challenge them to understand their individual role in God’s story. Hospitality is the heart of our Retreats Ministry as we partner with group leaders to provide the resources needed to create a unique experience for their specific group.
