Our annual Walk-A-Thon is held each year on the last Saturday in April. This is the camps single largest fund raiser. Simply put, people young and old alike, seek sponsors to walk in a 5 mile Walk-A-Thon in order to help Backwoods Christian Camp. While it lasts, “Matching” funds are available to match dollar for dollar what our walkers raise. Without these donations and matching funds, scholarships couldn’t be given to needy children, the cost per person for a week at camp couldn’t stay as low as it has and the camp’s expenses would be near impossible to afford.
To reward our hard working fund raisers, prizes are available for those who raise the most.

Baloney for BCC
How can eating a baloney sandwich help Backwoods Christian Camp? It can, if you decide to participate in a special fundraiser. Here’s what you do: 1) Choose any meal that you normally would eat out, 2) replace it with a baloney sandwich, and 3) donate to BCC what you would have spent at the restaurant. You can donate by clicking the “donate” button on the website.
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.
