PVM Camp History
In 1981, Pleasant Vineyard Ministries was established as a nondenominational camp on the former 80-acre Hamilton’s Council Boy Scout Camp, Camp Myron Kahn, and over the past 28 years PVM has extended the use of its facilities for youth groups, adult retreats, church picnics, Boy Scout camps, and much more. Today, PVM summer camp programs have become well known throughout the tri-state region and beyond because of the wide variety of unique and one-of-a-kind camp programs offered.
PVM is an environment where kids are accepted for who they are, and are given the opportunity to experience “hands on” learning activities that build character and educate them in life skills. Since the inception of the PVM summer camp program, literally thousands of youth have attended, with some coming from as far away as Texas, Florida, and Hawaii.
PVM programs offer youth five significant values:
Genuine community is experienced.
Ministry to the whole person takes place.
Positive relationships are built – with God and with others.
Memories and major life commitments are made.
Tomorrow’s leaders are developed today.
Pleasant Vineyard knows that each of the values experienced are a vital instrument of personal growth for the individual camper.
