Red Springs Mission Camp
Red Springs Mission Camp is a 52,000 square foot facility operated by North Carolina Baptist Men. The newly remodeled facility can house over 200 mission volunteers. The purpose of the Mission Camp is to provide a place where volunteers (men, women and youth) can use their God-given skills to rebuild homes and touch lives in the name of Christ. Most projects involve the building of new homes and renovation of existing ones in and around Robeson County. Working with local government, local churches, and other individuals, projects are identified by the camp leadership and preparations made for each team's service. Other evangelistic and outreach ministry opportunities may be set up as well upon prior arrangement with the Mission Camp director.

Teams serving at Red Springs Mission Camp have the opportunity to make an impact on people's lives. The Mission Camp Leadership will identify a project based on the current need and the skills of your team. While the service provided by teams is important in and of itself, the opportunity to build relationships, pray for, and minister to the local homeowner is the real purpose of the Mission Camp.
Volunteers are well taken care of at Red Springs. Bunk-style lodging is provided to accomodate male and female volunteers. An industrial-sized kitchen and large dining hall provide a very satisfying dining experience. A open lounge area provides a great place to swap mission stories after supper or early in the morning. There is also a chapel, shower facilities, and a large warehouse for tools, equipment, and supplies.
Director Larry Osborne, his wife Teresa Osborne and Assistant Director Windell Hunt (left picture) provide leadership at the Red Springs Mission Camp. Larry and Teresa live and works at the camp along with their daughter, Mackenzie. Windell serves as a pastor in Lumberton. An important part of their jobs include building relationships with folk in the area (right). Volunteer couples such as Greg and Pauline Quinn , of Calvary Baptist in Winston-Salem, (center) volunteer many hours running the warehouse and/or other needed tasks. Their service make things run smoother for the volunteer teams.
