This too shall pass! Kids will need to get outdoors with friends more than ever.
With the loss of summer camp for 2020, Camp Caudle will not only lose the opportunity to share Jesus with campers and be involved in the maturing of faith for staff, but also we will lose our anticipated registration fees instrumental in operating the ministry. Please prayerfully consider making a one time donation or becoming a monthly camp partner.

A Full Scholarship is $250
We work hard to provide a fantastic camp experience filled with Fun, Friendship, and Focus. We do not turn kids away from this great experience because of financial need. Each year we raise scholarship money that goes specifically to campers who cannot afford to come.
The Don and Margaret Helms Welcome Center
Thank you for helping us Continue the Dream!
Construction is complete on the Don and Margaret Helms Welcome Center. This is central to our camp in both location and function. Housing our administrative offices, camp store, and canteen.
Don Helms was known throughout this community as a dreamer, a man of vision and foresight. He was among those who dared to dream of a Christian youth camp here in the river valley that would serve not only the body of Christ, but also be an outreach tool for underprivileged youth in this region. His dream is being realized at Camp Caudle, but the dream is not over...
As Don himself wrote:
"When you stop dreaming about the future, the future is in trouble.The primary dreamers of the 1970's are now in their 70's or older, or deceased. many of them have crossed the stream but their dreams are still alive and well."
Don served on Camp Caudle's Executive Board of Directors from its inception until his passing. We will miss him as our mentor, financial advisor, and friend.
"A handful of people saw a Christian summer camp in a deserted field where cabins, a kitchen, and a couple of other buildings stood, with roofs falling in and trees growing out, near a creek just a mile west of Scottsville. After years of free labor and hard work, that old dilapidated area is now one of the finest camps in Arkansas."
"It is the result of people dreaming about what could be rather than looking at what was true. A walk of faith and not by sight."
Contributions to the Don J Helms Continue the Dream Campaign contributed greatly towards present growth of camp. Don loved camp just as you do. With our gifts combined, we will realize the vision of Camp Caudle being here for many years to come. Currently, we are dreaming about our new functional Office and Lake View Cabins.
"Dreaming is just another way of planning for the future. If anything is to be accomplished in our future, someone had better have a dream and be working on that dream. It may take 20 years for the dream to come true. Without a dream, nothing will happen. My challenge to you is to start dreaming if you're not, and continue dreaming if you are."
Lake View Cabins
The Lake View Cabins will sit just to the left of the drive as you pull down into camp and will overlook Lake Papa Crow. Each cabin will be approximately 1200 square feet. They will sleep 16 campers and 2 counselors, have two bathrooms inside, and a front and back porch. The estimated cost for each cabin is $95,000.
Your donation is tax-deductible and makes a huge impact on what we do here. We rely on your generosity.
