Camp Willow Run
Posted on February 11th, 2014

Camp Willow Run is an interdenominational Christian camp located on Lake Gaston in Littleton, NC. Established in 1968, it hosts approximately 2000 campers each summer and offers fall and winter retreat opportunities as well.
The three fold purpose of CWR is to “win youth to Christ, help mature those who are already Christians and demonstrate that you can be a Christian and have fun.” They offer summer camp opportunities for grades 3-12. Activities include swimming, sailing, canoeing, basketball, high ropes, climbing wall, and more.

College students coming from campuses mostly in North Carolina and Virginia staff CWR each summer. This is a great opportunity for those college students looking to mature in their faith and get a taste of Christian ministry.

CWR holds the distinction of being the place where Pastor Mike and Courtney first met, as well as being the place where Pastor Matt and Cheri first met! Pastor Tim also worked at CWR, but, for better or for worse, did not meet Anna at CWR!

CWR also now has a sister camp right next door with a focus on elementary age students – Camp Willow Springs (CWS). CWS is opening its doors to its first campers in the summer of 2014.
