What is SMC?
SMC began in 2008 as a new format of the same old youth group mission trip. Two youth leaders got together and designed what is now known as SMC. A week of mission trip & summer camp all crammed into one amazing experience. Over the years we've built great relationships with the communities in Colorado and the growing number of youth & youth groups that have participated in SMC. Around 400 youth & leaders have participated in SMC since we began 11 years ago. Many are now serving in leadership in their churches, communities, and even on the SMC Team!
The Traditional SMC is designed for Youth Groups with Middle and or High School Youth to attend with their leaders. Youth Leaders can sign up, pay the registration fees and have a worry-free planning experience. The SMC Team will take care of the heavy lifting. Each year the SMC Planning Team works to discern a theme and develop it into a week of work, worship, faith discovery, evening activities, and more. With groups traveling together from the region relationships are built that transcend the SMC week. Two of our goals are to provide a high-quality youth trip that Youth Pastors/Leaders have confidence in, and that youth will return home with an experience that encourages them to serve in their own backyard and continue to explore and grow in their faith.
