The Youth Department urges all Pastors and Youth Leaders to review the Flyer, Application and Waiver information regarding Camp NBC Mississippi.
Camp NBC is sponsored by the National Baptist Convention USA, Inc. and has been created as a result of the partnership between the National Baptist Convention and the Bass Pro/Cabela's Outdoor Fund. This event is for children who attend National Baptist Convention churches and are between the ages of 7-17, however young adults are welcome to attend as volunteers. Your youth groups are sure to have an educational and fun experience, as well as enjoy God's creation and the fellowship with other youth from across the State.
Camp NBC is totally free of charge, but churches are responsible for the transportation of their youth group. Lunch is also provided but attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch if they have dietary or allergy restrictions.
Attached you will find the electronic flier, group registration document, and waiver. Participation waivers do NOT have to be submitted ahead of time, but each youth participant will need to bring a waiver on the day of the event that is signed by a parent or legal guardian.
The location for Camp NBC MS is Turcotte Lake State Park in Canton, Mississippi.
We would like to have 250-300 children and youth and 40-50 adults/chaperones registered on or before the registration deadline. Please note: the registration deadline for this event is May 29, 2019. These spots will be filled as we receive registrations and registration will close once we reach that capacity limit or the deadline. Churches that are able should begin registering right away.
We will need volunteer help in these key areas: Camp Gear Relay Race, S'mores station, Safe archery, Registration, Fishing support, and Group chaperones. We will have two planning conference calls for all registered volunteers as we approach the event date, so please be sure to include volunteer information on the registration forms, so that they receive communication in regards to conference calls and meeting details.
