What's Included


Camp Yavapines is in Prescott, Arizona and is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects.

Camp Yavapines has served children, youth, and adults since 1947. Camp Yavapines offers a variety of accommodations from quaint cabins, to rustic bunk lodges, as well as RV and tent sites. The camp is nestled within the majestic pines of Thumb Butte, and adjacent to the Prescott National Forest. Camp meetings have been held here for decades, but the camp needs assistance to maintain their sprawling facilities. From roofing, painting, logging trees, clearing deadwood and landscaping, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Consider joining us on this project!
