Campers on Mission

Campers on Mission is a national fellowship of Christian campers who want to share their faith while camping or participating in missions activities. Membership is open to Christian campers of all denominations.

A love of the great outdoors and Christian fellowship are two characteristics of Campers on Mission. Whether backpackers hiking mountain trails, families on vacation or senior citizens motoring the highway, they look for ways to tell others about Jesus Christ and God's love.
COM participate in short-term missions projects across the US and Canada. Typically, these projects last a week or more. They could be anything from construction, disaster relief work and Backyard Bible Clubs to projects at state fairs, campgrounds, NASCAR races, parades or truck stops. In many creative ways, COM combine their their love of the outdoors with ministry across North America.

South Carolina chapter of COM will not cover members going on mission projects in the event of an accident. Members should carry their own insurance. For supplementary accident insurance from Gallagher Insurance Services, call 803-758-1400 or e-mail and request travel insurance for North American mission groups.
