  • Pathfinder: At this general camp session, youth will spend the week getting to know each other and exploring their faith while participating in various camp experiences/activities including hiking, swimming, playing games, campfires, and so much more. If you want to see all that Templed Hills has to offer join us for a week of fun, faith, and fellowship as we become Pathfinders!
    • Pathfinder 12-15 & Sr. Pathfinder 16-18
  • Confirmation: We will cover all the UCC Confirmation class essentials while connecting with other youth from across the conference and also have time for favorite camp activities like swimming, games, sports, campfires, hiking and more with the Pathfinders! This session is perfect for the camper ready for confirmation whose local church does not have enough students their age for a class. The local congregation will need to provide information about the local congregation before or after camp to complete confirmation. Confirmation campers will be integrated into the Pathfinder program for all their activities except for the confirmation classes.


* Bree and Chelsea Lee will be coordinating general camp activities

* Rev. Jonathan Bradner will be coordinating the Confirmation curriculum and activities

Please contact one of them or Jill Frey, Executive Director of Outdoor Ministries at or 1-800-282-0740 ext. 2, if you'd like to volunteer or learn more.

Registration information

Please note:

  • Please register by age level. You will be asked later if you are participating in confirmation or not.
  • Recruit a new camper to register before May 1st and list you as the "recruiter" to receive $25 credit for your camp. The new camper you recruit also gets a $25 credit.
  • To simplify the registration process today, additional health information will be required prior to camp. Watch emails for more information and a link to the form.
  • All participants who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination are highly encouraged to be up to date with vaccination before camp (initial series and all recommended boosters). We also anticipate that we will be testing everyone upon arrival.  Other COVID-19 protocols will be determined closer to summer and based on CDC recommendations for resident camps and the new CDC red/yellow/green county guidelines based on the majority of our participants' counties.
  • This event is for campers. Volunteers should contact the Camp Director for the link to register.
