December 10-12, 2021

Could God be calling you to the ministry of camps and retreat centers?
The Focus Event on December 10-12 will give you the opportunity to learn more about this ministry, to meet folks in the field, and to spend time exploring God's call for your life. This program is designed for people of all ages - whether you are a person planning a dream job in outdoor ministry as a second career, a summer camp staffer who is interested in the field, a church professional who is considering a change in ministry, or anyone in between. This program is endorsed by the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association, the Outdoor Ministries Association of the United Church of Christ, and United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries, but is open to participants from all denominations.

The weekend includes workshops, worship, a question-and-answer session, information regarding current job openings, a tour of Stony Point Center, and a panel discussion with current year-round staff. For just $50.00, participants will receive two nights in double-occupancy lodging (single-occupancy lodging for an additional $50.00), four meals, and airport shuttles on Friday evening and Sunday morning. For more information on the program, please contact Joel Winchip at joel@pccca.netor 803.322.0232.

Host Site and Transportation
Stony Point Center is located in the scenic Hudson River Valley, 45 minutes northwest of New York City in beautiful upstate New York. A brave and open space committed to radical hospitality and radical humility, the site welcomes guests from all walks of life. Owned and operated by the Presbyterian Church (USA) for over 40 years, Stony Point Center rests on 30 acres of nature, gardens, and farmland. The site is currently discerning the future of its ministry and Focus Event participants will be invited to be a part of that conversation

The Focus Event will begin Friday evening with some getting acquainted activities at 8:00pm (dinner is on your own). The nearest airport is Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), which is about an hour away from Stony Point. We will provide a shuttle from the airport by 6:00pm, so please plan to arrive by 5:30pm on Friday. If you are driving, you may arrive at Stony Point any time after 5pm on Friday. The program will end with breakfast and morning worship on Sunday. The shuttle back to the airport will leave around 10:00am that day. Please schedule flights no earlier than 12:15pm.
