About Camp Nova

Camp Nova (Latin for "new") is a summer camp where seventh through twelfth grade students are invited to come and be made new through Jesus Christ!


Camp Nova Service Opportunities

At Nova 2023, we had the pleasure of serving over 340 students, and that is no small task! Camp Nova cannot happen without individuals and families who give of their time and energy to help make Camp Nova a success.

If you would like to bless Camp Nova financially, please consider making a purchase from our 2024 Amazon wishlist. This list contains items that will be used for everything from recreation time to worship. Any item purchased can be shipped directly to First Methodist Church of Canyon.

As we look toward our next camp, we are looking to grow our pool of volunteers. Specifically, we are in need of individuals who would be able to help us load and pack before camp, and then assist with unloading once Camp Nova ends. Our team also makes use of golf carts and utility vehicles during camp. If you have a vehicle that you would allow us to use during camp, please let us know!

If you feel led to serve Camp Nova in any capacity, or if you have any questions, please email Camp Nova director, Kayla Irlbeck.

"So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word." -2 Thessalonians 5:15-17, NIV

All students in grades 7 through 12 are invited to join us for Camp Nova 2024! We are so excited to see what God will do, and we want you to be there to experience it.

As of April, Camp Nova 2024 is at capacity. Students may still begin the registration process, but will only be able to attend Camp Nova if a registered camper gives up his or her spot.
