Every year we hold our interfaith summer camp experience for 10-12th graders in Mecklenburg County. The purpose of the camp is to bring youth together from different faiths, races and socioeconomic backgrounds to learn more about each other’s faith traditions and to serve area residents in need. Participants visit various social agencies, travel by city bus, visit different houses of faith for worship services and develop their own interfaith service on the last evening of the program. Attendees are eligible to join the MeckMIN youth council.
Join us as we work on service projects with organizations across the county, attend worship services at different houses of faith, build relationships and so much more!
Scholarships are available and applicants will be notified of scholarship and financial aid approval if/when they are accepted to In Our Own Backyard.
