Thursday, July 18 | All day event
Our 32 schools and 17 preschools are on the front line of mission, charing the love of Jesus every day with our students and our communities. Stop by the Education Tent to learn about our schools, inquire about scholarships, or participate in our 5th Annual Scavenger Hunt (more information in the Gazette). You won't want to miss Thursday evening in the main tent, as students, teachers and principals share what God has been doing for His kids.

Thursday, July 18 | At the evening meeting in the Plaza Pavilion
We have an opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of students! We have received a “double match”! For every donation to the K-12 Scholarship Fund that comes in before, during, and for the month after camp meeting this year we have a supportive church member who will “double match” your donation up to $50,000! This will help students attend your local Adventist school and learn about Jesus every day. Remember, for every $1 dollar that you give, $2 additional dollars will be added up to $50,000! Let’s make sure to reach our goal and we can help our precious young people get to know their best friend Jesus. Thank you for believing in our young people and for your ongoing support. The offering this evening of camp meeting will go towards this scholarship fund, or you can give online at www.OregonAdventist.org. Just look for “Donate” in the top right corner, and choose “K-12 Scholarships.”
