To Let Christ Be Known Around the World

SBCA Purpose Statement

As an organization, SBCA exists to provide personal, practical, and professional support to camp and conference center administrators and support staff in their day-to-day work and to further their professional development.

Our History

SBCA was established as a 501(c)3 in 1999 with the purpose to educate regarding effective management of Southern Baptist camps and conference centers through a variety of seminar-style programs; to provide Christian inspiration through worship, fellowship, sharing of experiences, and prayer for one another; and to grow in love and appreciation for one another in the unique ministries that are shared.
