Search your hearts to see if God is calling you to help with camp. 
Many positions are available:  cabin leaders, junior cabin leaders (must be at least 15 years old), kitchen help, Bible study leaders, crafts and recreation leaders.


Each adult who is accompanying the children at camp must have a nationwide 
criminal  background check from a reputable company (i.e.:  Missouri Highway 
Patrol) completed and on file at the association office.  

Adults who do not have a background check on file will not be allowed to stay at camp.

It is a requirement by the 1000 Hills Association Camp Board to have this on file at the 
association office.  If you have had a background check in the last 2 years,
you may send a copy to place on file.  Background checks should be renewed every 2 years.

2016 Report of the Camp Team Coordinator


We had a great camping season this year and it was my privilege to once again serve as the Coordinator of Camp Team.

Youth Camp was once again held jointly with the Linn-Livingston Association during the week of May 30 – June 3. Praise God that attendance from the THBA greatly increased. This year we had:
5 Workers
28 campers 

Children’s Camp was held from July 18-22. Sarah Mires from FBC Kirksville was the Camp Director and Pastor Matt Tanner from FBC La Plata was the Camp Pastor.
We had 
134 people on campus:
93 campers
4 pre-campers
37 Cabin Leaders & Staff

There were:
13 Decisions for Christ
1 Re-dedication
3 Baptism requests 

We had several other children who had questions about the faith and need our prayers

These are tentative camp dates that will be considered for approval by the Grand Oaks Baptist Assembly board in their October meeting: Youth Camp July 3-7, 2017,   Children’s Camp July 10-14, 2017 

God blessed in many ways and we say with the psalmist, “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy” (Psalm 126:3).
