Dogwood Youth Conference

March 6th-8th, 2020

Dogwood Youth Conference (DYC), our annual Middle School and High School conference is going to be March 6th-8th. We are excited to partner with UKirk Tallahassee in leading this time of fellowship and recreation. 


This year Dogwood is moving to an online registration system for DYC. The registration form can be found under the DYC page on the Dogwood Acres website. If you have any questions about the new registration or are a DYC first timer feel free to contact Emma Hodges the Program Director at Note that all youth advisors and chaperones need to register as well. 



Since the October 10, 2018 storm, over 500 people have volunteered over 2,800 hours to help with the hurricane recovery at Dogwood Acres.


We are incredibly grateful!


We have completed all aspects of the immediate concern recovery and now that fall is here, we will make a big push to finish clearing and beautifying our trail system, painting the chapel and two other buildings, and doing general maintenance around the camp.


If you have a love for Dogwood Acres and would like to help, we would be very appreciative.  Your on-the-ground support is very, very encouraging to the Staff and DWA Ministry Team!

James Vance will be coordinating the volunteer efforts.  Please email him at or call him at 850-933-3985 to inquire about work days or to offer your services.  


Thank you!


HURRICANE RECOVERY: Please monitor our Homepage and this area for information about how volunteers will play a big part in Dogwood Acres' recovery.  As we work with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance personnel and others who are staying and working in the area, we are also welcoming individuals and small groups of volunteers!  



Thanks for your interest and support – we look forward to seeing you at Dogwood soon!



In more "normal" times:  There are many ways that you can help our presbytery’s Outdoors Ministry, and every few months between Sepetmber and May, we set aside a Saturday for folks who enjoy getting out into nature and helping with hands-on projects.  These events are planned for individuals and/or small groups.  Activities will range from trail blazing to painting, to carpentry projects, landscaping and gardening, and general maintenance.  Whether you have a teen that needs to put in volunteer hours, a Sunday school class that loves to get out and do things together, or you are an individual that just wants to support our ministry, please consider signing up for a day at Dogwood Acres.


James Vance, our Property Ministry Team coordinator, and others from our DWA Ministry Team will supervise.  Please email James at to let him know the kinds of things you feel comfortable helping with.  He keeps a list of a variety of projects and can also customize a day’s work to fit your abilities.
