Program Connection is the annual gathering of program-minded people from camps and conference centers across the continent. The 2019 event will be held at Johnsonburg Camp and Retreat Center (Johnsonburg, NJ). We invite all Program Directors, Summer Camp Directors, Program Staff and anyone who has an interest in programming in the Christian camp and conference context to attend. Come share the great ideas your site has successfully implemented, as well as learn from other camps and conference centers. The schedule will include time for sharing, discussion, hands-on activities, workshops, and plenty of fellowship time! Discussion topics are decided by participants at the start of the event, so sessions are aimed at what you need to learn or what you want to share. Come prepared to learn, to share, and to have fun!

The brochure for this program has not yet been released, but you can learn more about the 2019 event by contacting Tom Paradise.

The Outdoor Ministries Connection is offering the Great Gathering which will bring together all of the denominations for a huge joint conference. The event will be held at Lake Junaluska, the Methodist conference and retreat center in Lake Junaluska, NC. We are excited to have PCCCA as a part of the largest ecumenical gathering of outdoor ministry leaders in history. While there will be much to learn from the other denominations, there will still be time for the PCCCA family to gather within this event. Elise Bates Russell of Johnsonburg and Clayton Rascoe of Massanetta Springs are the PCCCA representatives to the joint planning team. Some details about the event can be found here.
