Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina: Wilderness Camping Programs

Cameron Boys Camp (Boys) and Camp Duncan (Girls), year-round wilderness camping programs based in North Carolina, are seeking a full-time counselor/teacher. We are an intense, relationship-based ministry to at-risk youth (11-15 year olds) in a wilderness setting. Living in the outdoors year-round, fishing, climbing trees, paddling 200 miles down a river in Florida or Georgia, camping by a lake in North or South Carolina, and backpacking the Appalachian Trail in Virginia – all are part of the camp adventure.

The heart of our ministry is building a daily partnership and relationship with youth. Three counselor/teachers or “Chiefs” provide the primary care and leadership for a group of 10 boys/girls. They live with the group in a primitive campsite setting with a rotating work schedule of 5 days on and 2 days off. The Counselors purpose is that of helping troubled youth confront and resolve past issues and current life conflicts while developing healthy relationships and living habits. The “Chiefs” facilitate a group process where problems are resolved as they arise and a caring, helpful environment is developed in the group.

Our History

Cameron Boys Camp and Camp Duncan for Girls are ministries of Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina (BCH). BCH is a nonprofit child care organization providing residential programs and services in 21 statewide locations.

Our Mission

The outdoor residential wilderness camp provides a year round program helping boys and girls and their families overcome personal and family struggles. Campers live in groups of ten with three counselors, called “Chiefs”. With the help of their peers and Chiefs, campers learn discipline, positive behavior patterns and self-worth.

Cameron Boys Camp and Camp Duncan for girls are licensed, non-public schools educating boys/girls through an experiential curriculum that serves as an alternative to the traditional classroom environment. ​The Christ-centered camp program provides children and their families an opportunity to work out challenges and problems in order to experience healing and transformation. Camp’s approach involves the entire family in order to build successful relationships between the camp staff, the family and the camper.

Our Values

Christ-Centered. Intentional Relationships. Goal-oriented Change. Experiential Education.

Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina: Wilderness Camping Programs - What We Do

The heart of our ministry is building a daily partnership and relationship with youth. Three counselor/teachers or “Chiefs” provide the primary care and leadership for a group of 10 boys/girls. They live with the group in a primitive campsite setting with a rotating work schedule of 5 days on and 2 days off.

The Counselors purpose is that of helping troubled youth confront and resolve past issues and current life conflicts while developing healthy relationships and living habits. The “Chiefs” facilitate a group process where problems are resolved as they arise and a caring, helpful environment is developed in the group.

The counselors lead the group in having adventures, following an educational planning process, establishing routines for living. They will also lead songs and devotionals during share time, chapel and Vespers services. As positive relationship develops, the mentors find opportunities to share their faith in Christ or help them grow in their spiritual lives that can meet the deep needs in the campers’ lives. We plan for the youth and their families to be reunited and help them tie in to a local church.
