Camp Dickenson: This Sunday Celebration

Camp Sunday    . . . .  all about Camp Dickenson

New Life on the New

                              Come and joins us in fellowship and celebration on Sunday, March 8th.

Following the 11 o’clock worship service we will provide lunch and give you time to meet Camp Director, The Rev. Michael Snow, time to learn more about Camp Dickenson, as well as a time to register for summer camp.


We will be serving a classic camp lunch.

Hot Dogs with all the fixings

Baked Beans fixed just right


Smoores “YUM!”



The Rev. Michael Snow, Camp Director , will be available to answer your questions about Camp Dickenson , whether questions about summer camp, about the current capital campaign, or about the construction going on at the camp.

During Worship Service there will be a special offering for Camp Sponsorships , giving deserving youth who may otherwise miss that joy, an opportunity to attend camp this summer.  We want to see every Child that desires to go to camp to be able to go to camp this summer.

Funds from donations at lunch will be used for our project to be built on Mission weekend April 24th thru 26th.

For Summer Campers there are several discounts available. Please see me Camp Sunday to see what is available for you.

Just like the last couple of years they want everyone to register on-line. I will be glad to help anyone that needs help with this.

See you on Camp Sunday .                                            Tommy Graham

A Little History . . . 

This past year at Camp Dickerson 440 children attended camp. This was an increase of 42 over the previous year. Most significant is that 17 young people made first time commitments to Christ and 63 reaffirmed their faith.

Churches of the Wytheville District have given generously to the New life on the New! Capital Campaign to construct a new pool, an all-purpose worship/recreation center, and new camp cabins. We are now at 60% of our $750,000 goal with our eyes still on the challenge goal of $1.5 million. Gifts of $223,332 have been received with pledges of $209,255 for a total of $432,587!

The Wytheville District has offered Christ through camping ministry since the 1930’s. In 1970, Mr. W.L. Dickenson gave his family’s home place to the Wytheville District to offer Christ to the children of the area. His generosity supplied the beginning of the ministry at Camp Dickenson .
