For nearly 30 years TYM Camp has been engaging with young people in positive relationships and meeting each child to shepherd her/him into a fun and meaningful experience. In the face of an unprecedented time, this current situation is challenging our ways of staying connected. But we have made a way to do TYM Camp!
This year’s camp is a BLEND of BOTH face-to-face and virtual. On Day 1 we will gather on the campus of Salesian College Prep High School in Richmond for a Sunday afternoon of high-energy fun to meet our team of new camper friends and leaders. Physically TOGETHER we will play games, laugh, eat yummy grub, learn names, and create all sorts of positive memories with one another. In the week days that follow, we’ll continue to gather from the safety and convenience of our own homes for five mornings of virtual camp. Together we proved last summer that, while different than being at camp in the woods, a virtual camp experience is full of belly laughs, games, challenges and great conversation with fellow campers and leaders. We are excited to host your child for a week of Friendship, Fun, Faith & Family.
Because of continued camp location closures and covid safety restrictions, TYM has developed a camp experience that captures each camper’s imagination and immerses them in a shared story of this year’s theme, “SHINE!”. We are committed to creating a safe environment, connecting campers to one another and pointing them towards God.
This year’s camp experience is for kids ages 9-12 (entering 3rd – 6th grade in the Fall)
There are TWO sessions to choose from this summer. June 20-25 OR July 18-23
The camp program has TWO parts – the Face-to-Face part and the Virtual/Online part:
>> Kickoff Day Face-to-Face – Sunday from 2:00pm – 5:00pm – at Salesian College Prep HS, Richmond, CA
>> Virtual/Online on the internet with your team – Monday – Friday from 9:30am – 12:30pm
We have assembled this high energy experience combining face-to-face and digital environments coupled with high energy youth & adult cabin leaders that will be present with your camper throughout each day’s experience. Each day will include time spent in small cabin teams of up to 8 campers and 2 leaders adventuring together throughout camp with games, laughter, skits and cabin conversations.

This year’s camp experience is for girls & boys ages 9-12 (entering 3rd – 6th grade in the Fall)
The TYM Camp experience begins with a Face-to-Face Kickoff on Sunday of each session at 2:00pm for Parents & Campers together (a bit like “dropping off” your child at the bus). The camper experience continues from Monday to Friday in each session. Each day begins at 9:30am and wraps up at 12:30pm
Cabin teams will travel together to meetups with other cabins for challenges as well as all-camp Club gatherings where they will meet our safari guide characters, musicians and encouraging speakers. Something to excite every camper and give you as a parent peace that your child is in good hands each morning of camp.
Yes! Cabin Teams are at the HEART of the TYM Camp Experience. Trained leaders that love spending time with kids will lead each team. Every camper will be assigned to a cabin team, composed of two (2) Team Leaders and eight (8) Campers.
The registration fee is $25 for this week-long camp experience. We never want money to get in the way of a child experiencing camp. If you have a hardship please let us know with an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
