[Kamélos] brings life and fellowship in the midst of a cold winter. I loved every second of it.
— Jessica

Kamélos is a Winter Youth Conference full of fun, fellowship, music, and Biblical teaching.

Our prayer is that this conference will help young men and women develop a lifelong devotion to Jesus Christ, an appreciation for the Reformed tradition, and a commitment to the local church.

Kamélos is for 8th through 12th grade students. It will take place on the weekend of February 16-18, 2018 in the Poconos near Camelback Mountain at Streamside Camp and Conference Center. This beautiful facility, which provides meals, heated cabins with bathrooms as well as activities like snow-tubing, table tennis and a rock climbing wall, is a great place for our kids to be able to have fun and fellowship during the cold of winter while also being challenged with the truths of God’s Word.


Our goal is to keep the conference as affordable as possible. In order to achieve this goal we rely on the financial support of those who have a heart for youth ministry in our region.

fellowship, music, food, and great fun.’
