Our Values

So this is why we do what we do and these values are at the centre of all we do -

Devon Christian Youth Camps (DCYC), is a registered charity providing the opportunity for exploring the Christian Faith through organising holidays for young people and families, including Camps, Houseparties and Reunions. All holidays have a common purpose, providing an exciting environment enabling the preaching of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, the teaching of the Word of God and demonstrating the Christian Life.


That there is only one true God, who has revealed Himself in the person of God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
That man is estranged from God by his sin and salvation is obtained only through repentance and faith in the vicarious sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.

That the Lord Jesus Christ died, was buried and rose again on the third day and shall come again to receive His own.

That the Bible is the revealed Word of God.
That believers should practice the Lord’s Supper and Believer’s Baptism.

  • I attended DCYC Boys Camps from 1971/77 where the Sites were at Looe, Corfe, Barnstable and of course Stoke Flemming. I remember the : : Coach struggling up Telegraph Hill : Rudimentary sloping corregated-iron outdoor toilets and the bucket in the green tent, and the exposed cesspit behind it, and the thankless task of a bearded officer who looked after it : Using the potato peeling machine and the smell of the Tilly Lamps in the marquees These Camps were the highlight of my teen summers
