Mission and Values
Montlure is owned by the two Presbyteries of Arizona. The Grand Canyon Presbytery
and the De Cristo Presbytery
Montlure is a special place for children, youth and adults in the
ministries of the church. It provides the opportunity for a Christian
experience in a setting that places it apart from the everyday world.
It brings campers in touch with the beauty of creation where God's role
in their lives is made real and enriches their relationships with
others. The primary emphasis of this ministry is to offer a Christian
experience through a carefully developed curriculum and competent
directors and counselors who staff the camp each week. Summer camping
sessions are held for groups from grade 4 through High School seniors.
Over 550 young people benefit from the Montlure camping experience each
is a ministry rooted in the beauty of creation, offering a safe and
nurturing space for all to connect through transformation,
restoration and faith exploration.
