Mid-South Youth Camp Welcomes Campers with New Tucker Family Dining Hall

Henderson, Tennessee - Jun 07, 2021

Mid-South Youth Camp, operated by Freed-Hardeman University, welcomed campers June 6, 2021, for eight, week-long sessions of growing closer to one another and the God who made them.

Junior camp, a day camp for seven- and eight-year-olds, began Monday, June 7, for four weeks.

Week one campers and their families were among the first to see the new Tucker Family Dining Hall when they signed in, and they also arrived to a new covered outdoor activity and game space — Grandma Fern’s Porch. The public is invited to the ribbon cutting for these new spaces Friday, June 18, at 3:00pm at the camp (260 Youth Camp Loop in Henderson).

MSYC is being led by familiar and new faces this year. Brad Montague continues his leadership of the camp that has served generations. He is being assisted by returning staffers Gayle McDonald, associate director; Darby Miskelly, assistant director; and Ally Rogers, junior camp director and registration coordinator. In addition, Davis Parten, a Chester County Junior High School teacher, has been named an assistant and Jim Barr, an FHU faculty member, is the new spiritual education coordinator.
