Camp Scholarships are presented each spring to children ages 8-18, of Original Free Will Baptist Churches who desire to attend summer camp but who are in need of financial help to do so. Applications will be submitted to the Christian Education Ministry office by the child and parents or guardians, accompanied by a letter of attestation by the pastor of the church. If your church is without a pastor at this time you may submit the letter from the Youth Director. Applicants must be regularly attending church or participating in the youth activities of the said church at the time of application and verification. All applications will be reviewed and the director will call the pastor/ youth director for verification of the need and the applicants participation in church, then prioritize the applications. The director will notify the applicant. The recipients will inform the Christian Education Ministry Director of the camp of their choice, either Cragmont Assembly, Black Mountain, North Carolina or Camp Vandemere, Vandemere, North Carolina. The Director will then send the monies to the appropriate camp directors. The families or churches will provide any additional monies the children might need.
If you know of a child who attends your church and would not otherwise be able to attend summer camp, please call us for an application, print the one to the right or have the parent fill out and submit the online form below for each child. All applications are due by Dec. 31st of the year prior to the camp season.
If you or your church would like to make a contribution to this fund, please contact us or send it to: OFWB Christian Education Ministry 201 W. James St.,

Please indicate that funds are for camp scholarships.
With the 2020 Camping Season being cancelled due to Covid 19 the Board of the OFWB Christian Education Ministry decided to take the allocated scholarship funds and extend a generous donation to Cragmont and Camp Vandemere. We tried to the best of our ability to cover the amount that each camp would have received from the camp through our scholarship program. We could not implement this program without the help of our churches, auxiliaries, and individuals who support this effort. A sincere thank you to those who help us by sending in special donations. If your church or auxiliary would like to send a donation for the 2021 camping season it would be greatly appreciated.

Please contact your pastor to have him or her do their part.
