On Mother’s Day morning, I was reading from 2 Corinthians 9:10-12 when God spoke to me. He said, “Son, I have given you seed that I want you to sow.” I asked, “What seed is that, Lord?” He answered, “I gave you land.” I replied, “Yes, Lord, you did. What do you want me to do with it?”
It was then that He gave me a powerful vision as if I was watching a movie unfold. In the vision, dozens of disadvantaged youth were gathered in our woods and taking part in outdoor challenges centered on learning the truth of Christ. And thus, Camp Zion was born. – Righ O’Leary
Camp Zion is an outdoor experience day camp that reaches out to fatherless, underprivileged youth in East Tennessee. We also disciple youth groups and other local youth while inviting sports teams, families, and corporations to participate in Christ-centered outdoor activities. Camp Zion falls under the auspices of Feeding the Orphans, a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry that exists to be advocates for the fatherless of the world in Jesus’ name.
Camp Zion focuses on youth experience, adventure-based outdoor activities designed to instill leadership, team-building skills, and self confidence while learning essential biblical truths. Each activity throughout the day will relate directly back to Biblical principles allowing the youth to learn the TRUTH through experiential teachings.
