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!
