Laurelville Summer Camp programs are designed for youth ages 6-17. Each week-long residential camp features a host of outdoor games and activities, music, crafts, Bible lessons and more. Your child will be under the supervision of trained counselors and staff who possess a love for Jesus Christ and a desire to encourage growth and discipleship. Set amidst 600+ wooded acres, Laurelville is the perfect setting for encountering the wonder and beauty of God’s creation in the company of counselors and friends. Laurelville Summer Camps are co-sponsored by Allegheny Mennonite Conference (AMC), an association of congregations within Mennonite Church USA. Although our camp is affiliated with the Mennonite Church, camp is open to anyone who wants to come.
This year’s theme is Peace Rocks! To get ready for another great year at camp, you are invited to spend some time with our theme scripture, Psalm 145.
For a free camp water bottle, you may choose to memorize a portion of the scripture (the same number of verses as your age), or you may choose to submit a video using these verses as the inspiration. Click here to find out more.

Payment and Refund Policy for Summer Camp
A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot. Full payment is requested before arriving to camp. Cancellations up to two weeks of the start of camp will receive a full refund minus a $50 cancellation fee. Cancellations after will be non-refundable.
When does camp begin and end?
All week-long camps begin on Sunday with check-in from 4-5 pm and end with a closing worship service on Friday at 11 am. Mini Camp begins on Wednesday with check-in from 4-5 pm and ends on Friday at 5 pm. Families are welcome for the closing worship service and picnic to follow.
What is Mini Camp?
Laurelville Mini Camp is specifically designed for children ages 6-8. These first-time campers are given a three-day, two-night taste of what a week-long camp experience is like. A camper’s first time at an overnight camp is a big deal, so we work hard to make sure both campers and parents feel comfortable.
What are the lodging accommodations like?
Campers stay in cabins in the Laurel Youth Village, a five-minute walk from the main area of camp. Each cabin is fitted with bunk beds, bathroom/shower and sink. The bunk beds are not supplied with linens; sleeping bag and pillow are recommended. To see a list of things to bring, click here.
