SCBaptist College Students on Mission

Across continents and borders, SCBaptist college students spent the summer sharing the Gospel.

Our family of ministries mobilized 347 students this summer alone through the Palmetto Collective, BCMGo, and our summer camps, Camp La Vida, Camp McCall, SummerSalt, and KidSalt.

Serving at Camp

Camp La Vida, an auxiliary ministry run by the WMU, had 24 students serve on staff, representing 15 colleges and universities. Over 1,400 campers attended Camp La Vida, a missions discipleship education camp in Fairfield, SC. Of Camp McCall’s staff, 39 were college-aged students from SC. During the summer, Camp McCall also sent out 17 staffers on nine different short-term mission trips. Over 2,300 attended ten camps held during the summer, breaking the record for the largest number of campers since 2013.

SummerSalt and KidSalt both operate on Charleston Southern University’s campus and are staffed by 25 college-aged students. Over 3,000 campers attended five weeks of SummerSalt, and nearly 1,000 campers attended two weeks of KidSalt. Whether in Winnsboro, Sunset, or North Charleston, SC, over 7,700 campers were exposed to the hope of the Gospel.

Sent on Mission

Students were also sent across the country and the globe on a mission to transform lives with the Gospel. Palmetto Collective, a program focused on equipping college juniors and seniors from campuses across SC to be missional leaders, sent students for both full summer and short-term projects. 14 students served internationally, and 15 served in North America for the entire summer. For short-term projects, 20 students served internationally, and 16 served in North America. Palmetto Collective sent students to many locations, including Los Angeles, Greece, North Africa, and Boston.

On campuses across SC, BCMGO encourages college students to participate in missions both locally and globally. BCMGO sent 177 students on short-term and full summer trips to locations across the country, including Denver, Salt Lake City, and New Orleans. Globally, they sent trips to France, North Africa, and more. They participated in community outreach like soccer camps, supported church plants and planters, and shared the light of Christ with those they met.
