Grass Valley Assembly of God had 10 wards from Washington Ridge, California Youth Conservation Camp in Nevada County to minister in music on Sunday, Dec. 22.

They sang under the direction of Cindy Hoffman, the new music teacher at Washington Ridge.

There are about 60 young men from the age of 18-20 at Washington Ridge. Their stay at camp is approximately one year.

During the fall and winter months, the young men do community service work during the day and attend school at night to get their high school diplomas. During fire season, they fight fires all over Northern California.
