Boys Camps - Information Packet
Camp Caraway Summer Programs are operated by Baptist On Mission (NC Baptist Men). We have been leading summer camp at Caraway since the summer of 1963. The Caraway experience is intentional about creating teachable moments through every aspect of camp. We use every activity, whether recreation or a worship service, to teach and equip children and young adults with Biblical truths. Through our strong emphasis on relationships and community, our quality staff strives to build a positive relationship with each child while modeling a godly lifestyle 24/7. At Caraway, our games and and recreation support teamwork and individual growth. During our daily missions time, children are challenged and encouraged by seasoned missionaries to follow Jesus Christ's Great Commission to make disciples as they go.
