Celebrating 29 Years

Camp Vinson Valley began in 1996 with the mission of providing a cost effective adventure camp experience to the children and youth of Middle Georgia. Located on Vinson's Lake, CVV is an outreach ministry of Byron United Methodist Church. The heart of everything we do is a love for Jesus.

Our program

We offer recreational sports, swimming, archery, hiking, kayaking, and arts-and-crafts! Each and every activity is instructed by one of our Counselors, whoes goal is to ensure each and every camper has an equal opportunity to learn and grow through the games they play, skills they learn, and new experiences. 

Camp Scholarships

A cornerstone of our program is the goal of providing the Camp experience to families who may not be able to afford the full cost of Camp.  We believe that each and every kid deserves to come to Camp, and although funds are limited, we have gracious givers who contribute to a Scholarship Fund. To apply for a Camp Scholarship, or contribute to the Scholarship Fund, you can contact the Church Office via email or by phone.

Our staff

Camp Staff come from all over the Middle Georgia area. Every Counselor is Safe-Sanctuary and CPR certified to ensure that each and every camper is cared for emotionally and physically during all times of the camp day. Many staff are also Lifeguard certified, and take special leadership roles at our waterfront to ensure maximum safety for our water activities. Most importantly, our Staff have a heart for Jesus. They love these campers, and love what they do.


We are always more than happy to help with any questions related to Registration, our Camping Program, or Staff. However, some questions are common, and may be answered more quickly by checking below

  • When does Camp Vinson Valley operate? What are the hours?

    Our Camp season begins the first week of June and runs through the last week of July, a total of (9) weeks. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:00am until 6:00pm. Our Camp program runs from 9:00am until 4:00pm. Times before and after that programming, Pre and Post Camp respectively, are offered for working parents free of charge!

  • Does my child have to come all summer?

    No! We have plenty of campers that attend only one week of Camp over the summer, and we program in such a way that even one week can be a full Camp experience. However, we do love our campers who are with us the majority of the summer. Regardless, whether its one week or nine, we are sure that your child will build relationships that last a lifetime!

  • Can my child come for just one day on a "drop-in" basis?

    Unfortunately we do not offer a discounted "drop-in" option for registration. All registration is done on a full-week basis; a full week's Camp Fee is required for each week registered regardless of attendance. All cancellations must be made prior to the Tuesday of that specific week or else a full Camp Fee will be charged.
