PCCCA has websites that help potential retreat groups, summer staff, and summer campers find your ministry. While all of our camps appear on the websites, PCCCA members receive priority listings which include pictures and appear at the top of search results. Have you made updates to your listings?

On May 7-10, the Presbyterian Mission Agency brought together ministries for the Christian Formation Covenant Partner Gathering at Stony Point Center, our PCCCA member site in Stony Point, NY. The denomination asked PCCCA, the Presbyterian Youth Workers Association, UKirk Campus Ministries, the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators, and the Presbyterian Older Adult Ministries Network to take part in a discussion on how these affinity groups could partner with each other and how they could better partner with the Presbyterian Mission Agency. It was a fruitful meeting and some exciting collaborations will hopefully be coming together in the next couple years.
