FACILITIES SUPPORT THE PROGRAMS


i want to be here because i get to have fun and learn about God at the same time. —Camper, Age 10

the strongest CAmp progrAms Are dynAmiC— ConstAntly ChAllenging its leAdership to provide the highest quAlity progrAms to support its mission. Camp oak hill is no different. the Board of Directors completed a thorough and strategic master site planning process to determine the best use of the land and facilities. Knowing that feedback from parents and campers consistently cited water activities as most critical to the camp experience, the Board placed the greatest priority on replacing the original camp swimming pool and completing the waterfront area of the new lake. in addition, the Board chose to upgrade the facilities most central to all campers—the dining hall and legacy cabin bathrooms.

WALK WITH US


We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done. —Psalm 78:4

For nearly 40 years Camp Oak Hill has faithfully delivered God’s word and revealed God’s love to its campers, counselors, and families. The Board of Directors and the staff are fully committed to continuing to obediently deliver the mission that God has set for Camp Oak Hill. In order to ensure the continuous delivery of this precious mission, Camp Oak Hill must be able to attract campers, grow its programs, and sustain its operations. The successful completion of the Attract Grow Sustain Campaign will position Camp for decades of faithful service. However, realizing the dream of this campaign will require the collective resources of those who love Camp Oak Hill and share its conviction to deliver its mission.

For those who connect our faith, ideals and values to the people and experiences of Camp Oak Hill, now is the time to step forward as stewards in support of this effort. With God’s grace and our combined support, we can position Camp Oak Hill to impact the hearts of kids for Christ for decades to come. We invite you to prayerfully consider your own participation and to walk with us on this journey.
