Carolina Cross Connection operates out of five camp locations throughout western North Carolina. Campers will stay at one of these locations during a camp week, working in the surrounding community. Each location offers a unique, rural setting for a week of service. Amenities differ, depending on the camp. Camp assignments will be made in March, after all group registrations have been received. Carolina Cross Connection cannot honor requests for specific location assignments. Submission of registration materials indicates your group's ability and willingness to attend any of the locations.
