2018 Memorization Scholarship

Each summer we are pleased to offer a scholarship for campers and counselors who memorize a large portion of the book or topic we are studying.  In summer 2017, we were able to award $1,400 in camp scholarships to students who did our memorization challenge!

This summer our theme is CULTIVATE. We will be studying the Fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

The memorization passages for this year are below:

Galatians 5 - $50 camp credit

Galatians 5 & 6 - $100 camp credit

Galatians 5 & 6, I Corinthians 13 - $150 camp credit

We hope that this is a blessing to students who invest time in memorizing. The biggest blessing comes from treasuring God's Word in our hearts.

Rules:  Passages can be quoted to an Oakridge staff member in person (no later than the first day of camp) or over Skype, and must be all in one setting.  Must be able to quote the chapter with only three prompts or errors.  If you try once and have trouble, you can try one more time later that day. Translation options to receive the scholarship are: KJV, NKJV, NIV, ESV, ASV. 

Our year-round staff will be memorizing these passages too! As you memorize, remember to keep reviewing what you have previously learned so it will be easier to quote as a whole!

Camp Love Story: T & C

We wanted to share this encouraging open letter with our Oakridge friends and supporters! God powerfully uses relationships to bless His people, and in this special case He used camp ministry to help two people find their future spouse and grow spiritually! We are blessed!

My Amazing Oakridge Family,

I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me over the years!

When I came here to work back in 2013 I was such a different person, but through your friendship and guidance I have grown into the woman I am today. You all taught me how to work hard and serve the Lord with your whole life and I am so blessed to know you all! Not to mention without coming here I never would have met my husband!

Tyler and I are so grateful for everything you do here for God’s glory! We truly believe in the work you do to show kids, teens, and adults alike the love and power of God’s calling on our lives. So we wanted to show you in a monetary capacity that we love and support you and that we believe God has amazing things planned for this camp as well as the new locations.

We could never pay back all you have done for us but we know that our contribution will be put to good use!

Save me a slide on the new waterslide!

Love and blessings,

Chelsea S

Thank you to everyone who supports the work of Oakridge to make stories like this possible!
