About Camp Meeting
The “Old Fashioned Camp Meeting” has been a source of encouragement, conviction, inspiration and for many, a place of salvation. In the early days, camp meeting was a moving, evangelistic event.
Wherever there was an area ripe for harvest there was a call for a camp meeting. Hickory, Statesville, Lenoir and High Point were some of the first camp meetings in North Carolina. The first camp meeting in South Carolina was near Spartanburg in 1905. At every camp meeting there would be a call for and recruitment for calporteurs. Many church members in the Carolinas had their first contact with Adventism through the books and tracts of the colporteur.
J.C. Noggle, who was a member of the Hickory church, shared his experience in a video report of traveling from Hickory to attend a camp meeting in Charlotte. Mr. Noggle recalled going to camp meeting, in 1921, in a covered wagon. It took two days, with a stopover in Lincolnton, to make the 58-mile journey.
Today there’s still the encouragement and inspiration, the difference today is the convenience of speedy travel. Now many more people are able to come receive the blessings of camp meeting.
In the Carolina Conference there are three camp meetings. The Conference-wide camp meeting is held in a beautiful mountain location of Western North Carolina called Lake Junaluska. This spiritual event lasts for an entire week. There are also two one-day camp meetings: Eastern Carolina Camp Meeting held near the coast in Greenville, North Carolina, and Lowcountry Camp Meeting in Summerville, South Carolina, near Charleston.
We would love to have you join us for one or more of these Carolina Camp Meetings! Please see the links on this page for more information on speakers, lodging and more...
