Camp Happenings

  • Justin Perkins hired for Director of Ministry position

    After a lengthy search, we are excited to welcome Justin Perkins to our full-time staff as our new Director of Ministry.  Justin, Kelsee and family will be moving from Canada to Camp Dixie near the end of June.  We look forward to Justin’s ministry among us. 

    Justin is stepping into the position formerly filled by Lana Jernigan who has been with Camp Dixie since 1983. At the beginning of 2020, Lana announced her decision to step down from her role as Director of ministry at the end of March 2021.   Since March, she has been serving full-time as a Consultant for camp preparing for the reopening of our 2021 Summer Camps. She has been an advocate for Christ in the lives of campers and staff, and we wish her the very best. 

    Please keep Camp Dixie, Lana, and Justin in your prayers during this transition time.

To show our appreciation, we are inviting you to be our guest for an afternoon of outdoor recreation at Camp Dixie in Fayetteville, NC! Soar off the BLOB, enjoy the kayaks & canoes, ride the go-carts, or have fun at the pool & Giant Waterslide. A picnic lunch is included in this FREE event for Youth Pastors only!
