Pumpkin Patch
All October Long

The camp is a beautiful place to be in the Fall, and we will have hundreds of pumpkins available for purchase during the month of October at our very own pumpkin patch. There will be a wide variety to choose from in all sizes and shapes. The pumpkins will be for sale by donations only with the proceeds going to the summer camp scholarship fund.


The pumpkin patch is located near the camp entrance across from the camp office. You can pick out your pumpkins, then make your donation at the office. The office is open Monday-Friday 9:00-5:00, and a donation drop slot in the door will be available at all times.

Bible Studies
Mondays, 7:30 pm

For many years now O.A. Fish, founder of SMCC, has been leading a weekly Bible Study every Monday night at the Camp. The Bible Study begins at 7:30 pm and is open to anyone who would like to attend.


Occasionally the Bible Study is cancelled due to scheduling conflicts, so it's always a good idea to call ahead if you plan to attend for the first time. O.A. can be reached at the Camp Office: 828-245-3322.

Due to COVID-19, the Bible study is live stream only. You can find it on O.A. Fish's Facebook page every Monday, beginning at 8:00 pm.

Annual Banquet

The event begins around 4pm with our Open House. There is a drop-in reception at the chapel room of the Joy Center. This is a great opportunity to meet Camp Founders O.A. and Charlotte Fish, Executive Director Steve Collins, and the other staff members. All facilities will be open for those who would like to view the camp themselves. There will also be guided tours offered throughout the afternoon.


The Banquet meal is served around 6:05 pm in the gym area of the Joy Center. The program following dinner includes presentation of the Summer Camp program from Steve Collins, and a special message from O.A. Fish. There is no cost for those in attendance, an opportunity will be given for a love offering. Dress is casual.


We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to see how South Mountain Christian Camp has continued to grow into a ministry dedicated to the Glory of God.

This is a great way to find out what SMCC is all about. If you're already familiar with our ministry, this is a great chance to see what's new at Camp. This might also be the perfect time to introduce a friend or business associate to this ministry.

You're Invited!
