Mississippi by Air: Camp Zion, Myrtle
A while back, I ran a newspaper clipping post from 1923 Vicksburg Post recounting the editor’s trip over the city in an airplane. I mentioned that I had started to accumulate aerial view postcards and that I needed to start posting them every once in a while. Well, here’s perhaps my most unusual Mississippi aerial view, and since it’s camping season, it seems appropriate.
CAMP ZION, Calling America Back to God. The purpose of camp is to get a better knowledge of the Word of God, the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers, and to pray for revival in America. Baptist Power Conference meets week after 4th Sundays in January and Baptist Youth Conference meets week of July the 4th every year. Camp is free to all who attend, including meals and beds. Camp is located at Myrtle, Mississippi, on Highway 78. Camp is owned and operated by Myrtle Baptist Church, Percy Ray, Director.
