I had the privilege of speaking on Monday and Tuesday at the 35th annual Hillsboro Family Camp in Hillsboro, Ohio.
This is a camp that attracts thousands of people from all around the country to a campground in Southern Ohio for a week of preaching, singing, camping, Bible Study, devotions, and a whole lot of fun.
This is a huge event. I was told that there were about 600 teens at the evening teen sessions, hundreds of children in the kids’ program, and over 1000 at the evening adult session. Thousands of people camp out all over the valley, shower in bathhouses (or in their really nice RV’s), cook over camp fires, and listen to a lot of good preaching throughout each day.
I was blessed by the singing, the preaching, and the opportunity to meet a lot of nice Christian brothers and sisters.
Some of the people at Hillsboro are fond of saying that Hillsboro Family camp offers some of the sweetest fellowship this side of heaven.
From what I experienced this week, I’d have to agree.
If you and your family like camping out and are looking for an opportunity to be spiritually refreshed, you might want to go ahead and mark your calendar for the week of the last Tuesday in July and reserve your space in that beautiful valley in southern Ohio.
