Camp in the Community
Camp in the Community (CITC) is a ministry of Holston Conference Camp and Retreat Ministries. It is a week-long day camp program for children in poverty. This summer the camp operates in partnership with a host church (Jones Memorial UMC in East Ridge, TN) alongside a sponsor church (Christ Church) in the Holston Conference. We provide a high-quality summer camp experience to those who could not otherwise afford to attend summer camp.
This is for the purpose of sharing the gospel in a tangible way and developing lasting relationships between the community and the church. In addition to reaching children in poverty, the program works with area youth to develop them as leaders in the church. Youth are provided leadership and childcare training and serve as assistant counselors.

Camp in the Community (CITC) is a ministry of Holston Conference Camp and Retreat Ministries. This year Christ Church is partnering with CITC and Jones Memorial UMC to bring camp to the Chattanooga area the last week in July. This partnership will allow children in our community to receive a high quality summer camp experience for up to 60 children who could not otherwise make it to a traditional summer camp. Pray for the staff and volunteers of CITC, that they would be able to share the love of Christ to the campers. Pray for the children that will attend CITC that they would feel loved, cared for, and open to hearing the gospel.
