About LTL and YTC Camp

The LTL and YTC Camp offers young people an outdoor summer activity including swimming, crafts, hiking, sports activities and an abundance of fellowship time. The camp is sponsored by the Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU), ThE ladyLike Foundation , Mount Zion Missonary Baptist Church and KFM International.  in addition to the recreation activities are a strong focus on Christian learning and character building.  The camp has returned after a 10 year hiatus with many of the campers years ago now in leadership.

The LTL and YTC program is not new as the WCTU has existed for 150 years championed by women who have an interest in protecting the home. Along with Christian education, an integral part of the program is an emphasis on drug and alcohol awareness at an early age for our young people. 

The summer camp has been a major activity of the California State Woman's Christian Temperance Union since the late1950's and over the years there have been notable women of God who made sure this activity takes place.  Mrs Esther Depew and Mrs Colleen Wilson, former state WCTU president's made this activity for youth a priority. So many women and men can also be mentioned for their support over the years but most notably, Esther Cagle and Madell Barfell. With the passing of these women, the camp will continue with support of the State WCTU and The Peterson Union WCTU, as well as churches; The Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, and The Royal Family Christian Village and community organizations, The Lady Like Foundation and KFM International.

The camp experience began at Camp Maranatha in Idyllwild, California and continued on until 2009. From 2010 to 2012 at Camp Thousand Pines, Crestline California. 

This year, the camp returns to its roots at Camp Maranatha in Idyllwild, Sunday August 6th to Thursday August 10th, 2023. Campers will be housed in cabins and meals will be provided Sunday evening through Thursday morning. Campers will need some funds for crafts, snacks and lunch while traveling up to campgrounds on Sunday August 6th. Campers must bring sleeping bags, bedding and a pillow as well as changes of clothes and toiletries for the 5 day encampment. Young people are encouraged to bring swimming trunks and bath towels as well as some rugged clothes for potential hiking activities. A suggested list of items to pack may be found in the section labelled Parents.
