Why Go To A Christian Camp?
Backwoods Christian Camp’s motto, “A Christian Camp for Every Child”, is being seen not only as a motto but as an attitude. In 2006 our board made it a goal to help start 100 new camps in the next 200 years. Taking the Gospel around the world to young people through Christian camps has proven to be a wonderful way to reach the lost. In the last four years we’ve had a part in 239 souls putting on Christ at 11 different camps in 5 different countries. We have multiple sites requesting our help and we’re trying to coordinate with them for the future. Apart from our local site located in Lineville, AL, we currently have camps in Cambodia, Guyana, South America, Sevierville, TN and Tanzania, Africa. Want to start a camp? We’d love to help! Have a look at one of our Mission Camp brochures.

Our Boosters are dedicated individuals that support the camp financially on a monthly basis. Each month they receive a letter in the mail which includes a brief news letter describing the ongoing work at BCC and a self-addressed return envelope. If you’re interested in becoming one of our Boosters PLEASE contact us!
1. Make this a family event and let everyone in on the blessing of giving.
2. Have a congregational Baloney fellowship and encourage one another to support Backwoods.
3. Don’t like baloney? Substitute some other low budget meal.
4. If you absolutely can’t donate now, do it another time. The online donation capabilities will stay on the website.
5. Don’t want to give up a restaurant meal, but still want to give? Great!
Baloney for BCC is an opportunity for all of us to make a small sacrifice to help insure that camp is able to keep on blessing lives. Many of you and your congregations already support the camp financially, and without your support, Backwoods could not continue to exist. Your help is greatly appreciated! God bless.
