Dear Mid-South Youth Camp Family,

Since our last announcement, we have been waiting to receive Governor Bill Lee's guidelines for summer camps in Tennessee. They were released Friday.

We have worked diligently to see how we can create ways that our MSYC family can come together while meeting those guidelines. After spending time trying to find solutions, we are incredibly sad to let you know that we will not be able to host any weeks of camp this summer.

President Shannon has asked us to share this message: "To our talented leadership team, counselors and campers, we love you and thank God for you. As we have worked cautiously and optimistically, this was not the outcome that any of us wanted . . . but we believe it is necessary. We are praying that through these disappointing days, you will receive blessings and find ways to encourage one another, even though you are not physically together."

Paid camp registrations will be refunded, of course, and there will be a message from the camp team coming soon.

Please join us in praying for each member of our MSYC family. As President Shannon said, we love you. We miss you, and we are thankful for the ways you make a difference and reflect His light.


Registration, Check-in and Check-out for MSYC

Thank you for your interest in MSYC. Below are answers to possible questions that you may have about MSYC. We look forward to serving you.


Junior Camp and Regular Camp

We offer two types of registration. Our Junior Camp is a day camp for children at least 7 years old that runs from Monday through Thursday. Regular session registration is for children age 9 and up. The regular sessions are intended to be overnight, and run from Sunday through Friday.



Please do not expect that you will be with your friend in their cabin - we will do what we can to accommodate but we assign cabins on a first come first served basis for age brackets, genders, and groups when making cabin assignments. Online registration for the upcoming Sunday of camp will be available until Wednesday at noon of the preceding week.  If you have not registered for camp but would like to come and register on Sunday, please be aware that we would love to have you attend but we will allow registration on a "cabin space available" basis. The cabin you desire to be placed in may already be full.  You will have plenty of opportunity to be with your friend(s) during camp.  Please be flexible and know that you will have a good time and have an opportunity to make new friends.

If you receive a "Thank You for Applying" page when you register online, that is your confirmation page.  If you type in a valid email address, you will also receive email confirmation.  If you would like a confirmation number to be sure it has arrived, please email and we'll be happy to comply.  Thank you for your patience with us as we strive to improve our services.

If you have paid in full and are ropes course eligible and have the proper paperwork completed or are too young to participate in the ropes course, your name and cabin assignment will be posted at the camp on Sunday afternoons on a Prepaid Campers list outside of the Kirk Dining Hall. If your name is not on the list, please inquire inside for further details.

If you have medications that need to be checked in, we have a camp nurse available during the registration times of 2:30pm to 4:00pm that will assist you.



Friday Morning will end with a general assembly in the pavilion and an awards ceremony from 9:00am - 10:00am. Please have everything loaded and be ready to exit after this assembly. We hope you enjoy your stay at MSYC.
