50+ Years of Ministry: Founded 1964


Mountain Top Youth Camp operates as a nonprofit Christian organization, governed by a board of directors who represent approximately fifty nondenominational churches throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. MTYC is located on 199+ wooded acres of natural beauty blanketing the northwest slope of Sauratown Mountain near Pinnacle, NC.

A one-mile road winds its way up the mountainside to the camp facilities overlooking the valley below and offering picturesque views of Pilot Mountain and the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is in this beautiful setting that MTYC has provided Christian youth programs and spring/fall retreats since 1964.


It is the camp’s aim and purpose to provide high quality programs and activities that bring youth to Christ, encourage deeper spiritual commitment and maturity, and demonstrate that the Christian life can be one of meaningful fulfillment. A key to the success of these programs and activities is the careful selection of dedicated Christian directors, speakers, counselors and staff.

Exciting camp programs are available for youth from 1st grade to college age. Every camp week is filled with experiences that last a lifetime. Swimming, hiking, rappelling, ropes/challenge course and campfires are among the many activities offered at Mountain Top Youth Camp. MTYC is committed to bringing a safe, healthy, and clean environment to every camper and guest. A lodge with a large assembly room and a dining hall, camper and staff cabins, scenic mountainside deck, gameroom, snack shack and a unique spring-fed pool are just part of the exceptional facilities. The wide variety of programs offered by MTYC provide a great blend of spiritual challenge, physical exercise, and warm Christian fellowship for all ages. You and your friends are invited to be a part of the “Mountain Top” experience.
