Thanks for visiting our website! U.M. ARMY is an acronym which stands for United Methodist Action Reach-Out Mission by Youth.
U.M. ARMY’s mission is: “To provide Christ-centered quality youth work camps that serve people in need and promote spiritual growth and leadership development in youth.”
It is an opportunity for youth, college students and adults to experience Christian growth through mission, worship and fellowship. Participants combine their strengths to meet home repair and maintenance needs of those unable to help themselves. It is typically for students who have completed at least one year of High School, although some camps include incoming 9th graders.
U.M. ARMY has been holding camps for more than 30 years and our program is constantly growing in size and territory. We have managed to touch many lives over those years. Annually we have over 4000 participants working on about 1700 projects and now hold camps for Chirstmas, spring break, summer, and weekends throughout the year!We currently have active chapters in the UMC Texas Conference, the UMC Southwest Texas area, and in the UMC Northeast Jurisdiction serving eight states with camps in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The National growth focus in on the remaining portion of the UMC South Central Jurisdiction, the UMC North Central Jurisdiction and UMC South East Jurisdiction will follow along soon after.
We invite you to take a look around this site and browse our chapter pages as well for more details about all that is happening U.M. ARMY wide.
