RMAI SUMMER YOUTH CAMP

For over 15 years, RMAI Churches from all over the Northeast have been sending their teens to a fun, active, and spiritually charged Youth Camp.

The goal is to provide youth with the opportunity to come into God’s presence with other teens just like them in order to be changed and refreshed by the Holy Spirit.

Each year, there are wonderful testimonies from the youth about how Jesus has transformed their lives because of the powerful experience Youth Camp offers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost per camper?

For 2022, the cost is $395 per camper. This includes all meals, overnight accommodations, activities, and more.

Why is it called the "RMAI" youth camp?

RMAI stands for “Rhema Ministerial Association International.” The camp operates under the authority of Rhema Bible Church and Rhema Bible Training College, located in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The summer camp is an extension of Rhema’s ministry to their churches and teens in the Northeast.

Do you have to be attending a Rhema church to attend this summer camp?

Anyone can attend the RMAI youth camp, regardless of their association to Rhema. Any church considering partnering with this youth camp should understand Rhema’s statement of beliefs before attending the camp.

How many students can I send to camp?

You can send any number of campers from your church.

We require churches to provide at least 1 male Counselor per every 5 male Campers, and at least 1 female Counselor per every 5 female Campers. (i.e. 11 male Campers attending camp? Please provide 3 male Counselors.)

If your church has a group of 5 students or less of both genders, and you are unable to provide both a male and female counselor, please contact the camp director.

If you have 3 or less campers from your church and are unable to provide a counselor, your students can still come and join another church.

How many people attend this summer camp?

On a normal year, we’ve had approximately 200 people attending camp, consisting of campers, counselors and leaders from 13+ churches.

Where is the the RMAI youth camp located?

We’ve enjoyed hosting our annual RMAI youth summer camp at Refreshing Mountain Camp in Stevens, PA for over 20 years. The staff, facilities, and offerings are a delight each year. For more information, you can view their website at https://refreshingmountain.com.

What is a typical week like for a camper?

Churches will arrive Sunday evening and receive orientation for the week. We have morning and evening worship services each day, and students and counselors from all different churches are divided into several teams as they participate in activities throughout the week. The students will also have plenty of free time to enjoy the pool and other facilities available at Refreshing Mountain Camp.

Phones/tablets/smart watches are not permitted for campers during camp, but they are able to call home.

Do you have a camp nurse?

Yes, we have our very own camp nurse that is able to care for students throughout the week.

Is it possible to stay for only a portion of camp?

“Partial stays” can be arranged in cases where someone wants to attend camp, but cannot stay for the whole week. This can be arranged through your church’s leader and with the camp director.

My church is interested in attending, what should we do next?

There are many ways to get more acquainted with the RMAI youth camp. It is always great to get in touch with the camp director and talk one-on-one.

You can also consider sending your youth pastor and one or two other staff members and/or students to attend the upcoming camp year for the first time to gain a better understanding of what it is like.

What can we expect regarding COVID-19 precautions?

For camp 2021, we asked every person in attendance to take a PCR test within 3 days of arriving to camp and to provide proof of negative test upon arrival to camp. With negative PCR tests, we allowed masks to be optional. We do not require anyone to have the Covid-19 vaccine. We did ask everyone attending camp to sign our Covid-19 waiver as well.

As of Fall 2022, we can plan to expect the procedure for camp in 2022 to be similar. Updates will be communicated via email to attendees. For questions or concerns, please contact the camp director (contact details at the bottom of the screen).

Refreshing Mountain Camp has very safe facilities, and have installed AirScrubbers in the HVAC of the bunks, dining hall, gyms, and large meeting rooms to make their accommodations clean and safe for their guests.
