Camp Meetings

Special Events

Education Day
Thursday, July 21

Thursday at Camp Meeting is a special day where we celebrate our Christ-centered Adventist schools within the Oregon Conference. We currently operate 13 pre-schools, 26 kindergarten-8th grade, three kindergarten-12th grade, and three 9th-12th grade schools within Oregon and southwest Washington. Our enrollment is projected to top 2,500 students this coming school year and our goal is to teach each student about God's love and the plan that He has for their lives. Thursday evening we will be featuring some of our amazing students as they share through music and stories. Also, please stop by the Education tent to learn more about the opportunities available for your child or children of your church family.
