Chrysalis
A spiritual renewal program (separate weekends for male and female 14-21 year olds) intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The approach seriously considers the model of Christ’s servanthood and encourages Christ’s disciples to act in ways appropriate to being “a servant of all.”

Summer camping opportunities are also available for children and youth through the California-Pacific Annual Conference at various UMC campsites in Southern California during the month of July.
