Camp Scholarships are presented each spring to children ages 9-18, 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 regularly attend church or participate in youth activities of the said church.  All applications will be reviewed and the director will call the writer of the letter for verification of the need and then prioritize the applications.  The winners will be notified and the scholarships will be presented at the Annual L.I.F.E. Conference in March.  The winners 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.  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 fill out the one here for that 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.

This year our ministry awarded 55+ scholarships to camp.  We try very hard to provide scholarships to all who apply.  We hate to see any child miss out on this opportunity because they could not afford to go.  We cannot do it without the help of our churches, auxiliaries, and individuals who support this opportunity.  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 this project it would be greatly appreciated.
