CAROLINA BIBLE CAMP
MOCKSVILLE, N.C. — More than 800 guests attended the recent fourth annual Carolina Bible Camp Bluegrass Festival.
The event is the nation’s only bluegrass festival held at a Bible camp, promoting Bible study and wholesome recreation, organizers said. Worship assemblies are a cappella.
“This year’s festival was our best attended so far,” event chairman Greg Brewer said. “We’re getting the word out about the festival and about the camp.”
The festival raises funds to ensure no child is turned away from camp because of an inability to pay.
