At LLYC, most of our time is spent having fun, building relationships, playing outside, and enjoying the incredible Frio river canyon. Our staff and campers often dive into discussions along the way about God, faith, and life. Each day we have a few planned times where we prioritize spiritual matters.
Every morning, each camp has a short devotional time where campers will experience peace and quiet, an introduced topic or activity, scripture to consider, and usually some discussion led by our staff. Every night all of camp gathers for what is called “Roundup.” Campers are invited to sing, laugh, participate, and listen to a talk given by one of our leadership staff. After Roundup, campers return to their cabins to discuss the talk with their counselors. We call this “Cabin Time.” It is an opportunity for people to share and be vulnerable with one another, talk about life, faith, struggles, concerns, confusions, etc.
At LLYC we welcome campers and staff from a wide variety of faith perspectives. We don’t claim to have all the answers, and we recognize that even within Christianity there are lots of different opinions and beliefs. When we talk about faith, we do our best to avoid debates and defense of doctrines and dogma. Instead, we listen to each other, try to understand each other’s perspectives, share our own thoughts, and have meaningful conversation.
