Problems are to be solved. This feels like a place I can deal with issues and find answers for my life.
Trips provide opportunity for hands on learning. Whether it is the Suwanee River in Georgia, or hiking the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania boys get to see, touch and experience.
Cameron Boys Camp, a ministry of Baptist Children's Homes of NC, may offer your family the hope that you need.
The purpose of Cameron Boys Camp is to provide troubled boys in North Carolina, between the ages of 10-15 years old an opportunity to work out big problems and find a new direction for their lives.
Life goals are set using an outdoor setting, the fun and adventure of camping, and a team consisting of the boy, his family, camp staff, and peer groups.
Cameron Boys Camp helps boys grow emotionally, socially, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
The family also grows as they participate in goal setting, counseling, family conferences, and home visits.
All working together, a boy reunites with his family better able to succeed in his community.

Group games, fishing, swimming, crafts and personal time fill their weeks, providing a well-balanced program.
- The program is COA Accredited.

- Chiefs: As authentic, adult role models, chiefs wear many hats – from counselor to friend to teacher. Solid values and strong standards are the backdrop of a chief’s life. Chiefs become deeply involved, daring to change and grow themselves, to help the boys succeed.
