There are many opportunities to get involved in the ministry of Morganwood Youth Camp during the camp season and in the off-season. See below for more information.

Off-Season Opportunities

Camps need maintenance and ours is no different.  We seek volunteers who are eager to help us in this regard!  Please contact Rev. Dennis Kizzire (662-213-0231) to see where you can help.

Adopt a Project

Looking for a mission trip for your church men’s, women’s, or youth group? Looking to stay local to the Tupelo, MS area? Love Morganwood Youth Camp? What if we told you that your ministry could adopt a project or multiple projects to help us prepare for the upcoming camp season. These are jobs volunteers can do without professional skill levels.
