Welcome to U.M. ARMY

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.”

U.M. ARMY Mission camps are an opportunity for youth, college students and adult leaders to experience Christian growth through mission, worship and fellowship. Individual participants and church groups combine their strengths with those of other groups to meet home repair and maintenance needs of those unable to help themselves.

U.M. ARMY has been holding camps since 1979 and our program is constantly growing in size and territory. We have managed to touch many lives over those years. Annually we have 5,000 participants working on about 2,000 projects and now have mission opportunities during Christmas, spring break, summer months, and weekends throughout the year!

Most of these mission camps are hosted through our growing UMA chapters including the Northeast US, North x Northwest Texas, Southwest Texas, Texas Conference (East Texas). Our National Organization is focused on growing in new territories. Currently these include: Louisiana, Oklahoma & Alabama/West Florida.

Our mission camps were originally designed for Senior High aged students who had completed at least one year of High School. Today, many of our chapters have expanded offerings specifically designed for Middle School Students (Basic), Mixed Age (Middle School/Senior High), and College/Young Adult mission camps.

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 throughout our growing U.M. ARMY family.
