For more than 65 years, CampWorldLight has inspired campers of all ages to find their own purpose in God’s mission. For many that meant accepting Christ as Lord and Savior; for others it is being called as missionaries and mission leaders. Through these years, Camp WorldLight, formerly known as Florida WMU Camp, has maintained a tradition of touching hearts and changing lives. Ruth Bagwell, Florida WMU Camp Director from 1964-1983, once shared the critical nature of Florida Baptists’ camping program with her counselors. “In your hands, you hold the treasure of a priceless relationship: the friendship and confidence of young girls. It is a fragile trust…and it is fraught with peril…and opportunity.” This pearl of wisdom still holds meaning today. Today, several dozen camp alumni are now serving as missionaries across the world.
Camp WorldLight is a program of the Women’s Missions & Ministries/Missions Education Team of the Florida Baptist Convention and is supported by the Maguire State Mission Offering.
Camp WorldLight exists to enable campers to experience Christ through the uniqueness of the camp setting, and to respond to His unique, individual plan for them to radically impact their world with the Good News of His gospel.
