Calling all Youth Groups, Youth Directors, and Pastors! Are you heading to Houston for the National Youth Gathering this summer? If yes, then come to this new camp designed just for your group!

NYG-2-GO is an opportunity for you and your youth group to debrief all the amazing experiences you had at the National Youth Gathering and answer the question, “Now what?”

Your week will be built around hands-on time serving the camp in a variety of service projects while also participating in many fun camp activities, Bible Study, and sharing times, reinforcing the idea that service is service, no matter where you are!
