Mission and Values

Montlure is owned by the two Presbyteries of Arizona. The Grand Canyon Presbytery and the De Cristo Presbytery. Montlure is a special place for children, youth and adults in the ministries of the church. It provides the opportunity for a Christian experience in a setting that places it apart from the everyday world. It brings campers in touch with the beauty of creation where God's role in their lives is made real and enriches their relationships with others. The primary emphasis of this ministry is to offer a Christian experience through a carefully developed curriculum and competent directors and counselors who staff the camp each week. Summer camping sessions are held for groups from grade 4 through High School seniors. Countless generations have benefited from the Montlure camping experience each summer.

Mission Statement:
