Summer 2014 Program Catalogue
Living with Creation, Sharing our Faith, Serving Christ
Bethelwoods Camp offers a Christ-centered camping experience for kids of all ages. Staff
is trained to help campers understand Godâ€™s message of love and grace and to provide positive Christian role models. All children and youth are encouraged to participate in Bethelwoods summer programs. If you have any questions about special situations, please call Jacquie Scoates 803-366-3722.

In order to accomplish this, all staff go though two weeks of intensive training on all aspects of our camp programs. All staff are background checked and all counseling
Worship is a fun and creative experience. Each day campers participate in morning watch, bible study, and evening worship with lively songs, skits and messages presented by some of the best worship leaders the Carolinas have to offer.
