Camp Tuk-A-Way | Blacksburg | (540) 961-4100
In Scripture 50 years, a Jubilee, was a time of special celebration. “And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.” Lev. 25:10. Debts were forgiven, people returned to their homelands and celebrations were held throughout the land. We, too, want to keep that Jubilee tradition and celebrate 50 years of changed lives all because of the vision of those early leaders. That vision of ministry to young people has been passed down to each generation of campers that have come to know and love Camp Tuk. A big part of the celebration this summer is making sure that the vision is passed on to the current generation of campers so that they in turn can be a part of the Dynasty that is Camp Tuk-A-Way. “And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” II Timothy 2:2. Do not miss this great Celebration of faithfulness.
