Asian AMerican Summer Camp 2022

This is the 48th year of the National Japanese American United Methodist Caucus American Summer Camp (NJAUMC AC)! The past two years has been a shift as we continued camp amidst the isolating times of the pandemic through Virtual Camp. This year, we are happy to announce that we will be transitioning back to in-person camp through the diligent work of NJAUMC Camping Board and Covid Task Force. Camp will look different this year with new guidelines to ensure the safety of our campers and staff. 

The mission of “Asian Camp” is to introduce youth to Christ, nurture their faith and send them forth as Christian disciples and leaders for the transformation of their community and world. Through worship, fellowship, prayer, growth groups, community builders, and other outdoor activities, Asian Camp encourages campers, as well as staff, to explore their faiths, reflect on their personal identities, and use their spiritual gifts for God’s glory. With special focus on equipping for the future, Asian Camp seeks to instill pride in each camper’s spiritual, cultural, and ethnic identity.

AC THeme

The theme for Asian Camp this year is "Resurrecting". 
Change is inevitable. These last couple years have brought more change than any of us could’ve imagined. Drastic changes that we were not prepared for. We’ve dealt with isolation, adapting to new life standards, anxieties and fears about tomorrow, grieving over losses, and have been forced to reimagine so many parts of our lives. We’ve all had to reimagine what church looks like, how we worship, and even how we experience God in our everyday lives. Camp this year is not only about looking forward, but about taking a step back and reflecting on our roots as Christians. We will be focusing on the death and resurrection of Christ. It is one of the most foundational stories of the Christian faith. Though this is a story of tragedy and loss, at its core the resurrection is a story of hope and perseverance of faith. With this camp theme we look to find hope in our perseverance, and hope in our faith, so that we may look forward with a new sense of purpose in Christ.
