Camp Oak Hill will always be a place where people are safe and joyfully experience the love of Jesus Christ, impacting the community for generations.
Camp Oak Hill shares and models the love of Jesus Christ through intentional relationships while providing safe, challenging and joy-filled experiences.
In 1976, three years after Oak Hill High School closed its doors, the property was purchased and given to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes of the Carolinas, Inc., in memory of J. Gregory Poole, Sr., a member of the first graduating class of Oak Hill High School. The class motto – “Building for Character, Not for Fame” – provided a vision for the founders, and became the formative mission of what would one day be Camp Oak Hill.
The first summer camp session was held in 1976 and brought 33 boys and girls for two weeks of fun and fellowship. Four all-weather tennis courts were built, and a financial contribution provided funds to renovate the old high school gymnasium building.
