2019 Mock Camp Fire at Annual Conference

This year, during the SC United Methodist Annual Conference in Greenville, SC Camps & Retreat Ministries hosted a mock camp fire for folks to enjoy a little bit of Asbury Hills right there in the Greenville Convention Center.


Complete with ‘flames’ and a little smoke, folks stood around the ‘fire’ singing songs and telling camp stories. We encouraged everyone to stop by for songs and stories but we also held a drawing for a pair of round trip air fare tickets. Everyone was able to enter the drawing at our table in the exhibit hall. We had a great response to the drawing with over 150 entries!

Congratulations to Joann for winning our drawing!


Once the drawing was over, we encouraged folks to stick around for a few more songs, stories, and s’mores. We couldn’t quite give the full s’more experience since the fire was fake but we did have all the ingredients to get as close to the real thing as we could!


Thank you to everyone who joined us for our mock camp fire. We are so thankful for this ministry and truly appreciate each person who helps us keep it going!

Golf Tournament 2019

We just wrapped up our 7th annual golf tournament! Here are some photos and details about our fundraising event.


What is our golf tournament? It is an annual event we put on right before the SC United Methodist Annual Conference. We encourage folks to come a day early to Annual Conference and play a round of golf. All the proceeds for this event go towards our camper scholarship program.


Thanks to our golfers, sponsors, and volunteers, we were able to put a significant amount towards our scholarship fund to help campers attend camp who otherwise wouldn’t be able to.
