Founders' Celebration 2019

As part of our 2019 Harvest Day Celebration, we honored the families of our Founders.  Our Founders are the men and women who served on the Camp Dixie Committee which became the Camp Dixie Board between the years of 1966-1970.

This group sought God’s direction as they stepped out to make bold decisions concerning the ministry of Camp Dixie that put it on a new growth path, moving the location from Wilmington to the current location in Fayetteville.   They worked tirelessly to get the camp ready for use,  raised funds and put in countless hours on work days.

background on our location

The locals refer to Camp Dixie as "Page's Lake", as they knew it back in the mid-1900's before it became Camp Dixie in 1967.  This brief presentation will give you a bit of background on our location as gleaned from Bladen County Agricultural maps from the late 1800's and from a series of colorized postcards published between 1925-1945.
