Youth Extreme Summer Camp—or Y.E.S as it's commonly called—is held each summer at Fontainebleau State Park in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, on the outskirts of the town of Mandeville. Camp facilities are located in the group camp area of the park directly on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain.
Each summer we offer two camps for boys and girls ages 6-17, one for teens and one for preteens. It is our goal at both Y.E.S. camps to provide a camping experience which is not only fun and exciting, but which encourages the camper towards positive relationships. We feel it is important that young people learn to treat each other with kindness and respect.
Regional Youth Ministries (RYM) is a ministry to teens and pre-teens living in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Alabama. Of course, we don't limit our activities to youth from these states only. Anyone living in another state is welcome to join us. The main activities that we sponsor during the year are two YES summer camps and a Souled Out Winter Camp in Memphis, TN.
