We, at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Germantown are fortunate that our middle judicatory, West Tennessee Presbytery, recognizes the importance of outdoor ministry. The presbytery plans for and provides camping opportunities for the children of its congregations. The camping program of our presbytery enables children and youth to experience the larger church, to develop an appreciation for nature, to grow in their faith, and to develop meaningful relationships.
