Scripture Memory Camp

Earn a Fun Week of Camp by Memorizing Scripture!

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." (Psalm 119:105)

Scripture Memory Camp is an opportunity to step away from the busyness of everyday life and enjoy a week of fun, fellowship, and—most importantly—Scripture. Each morning begins with a lakeside devotional and Bible study, followed by an afternoon of recreation and fun. In the evening, campers gather in the gymnasium for singing and a message from God’s Word. You’ll meet new friends, grow in your memorization skills, and have a blast with special activities. Don’t miss the fun!

Scripture Memory Camp is designed for the young and the young at heart! Campers ages 3-18 memorize Bible verses to earn a full week of camp. Parents and other adult memorizers are also welcome.


Scripture Memory Camp is held at Southland Christian Camp in Ringgold, Louisiana. Learn more about Southland's camp facility here.

Youth ages 9-18 stay in dorms with counselors for the full camping experience while adults stay in the motels. Cabins and/or motel rooms are also available for families who would like to lodge together. Children ages 8 and under must lodge with parents or sponsors. Ages are based on the first day of camp: July 4, 2022.

Lodging is first come, first serve and will be prioritized based on needs (elderly, teachers, accessible, young children, etc.).


Camp is scheduled for July 4-8, 2022. Camp will start with Monday afternoon check-in and supper. Camp ends with Friday breakfast and morning departures.

What Does Scripture Memory Camp Cost?

Basic Scholarship for ages 3-18

With a Basic Scholarship, you can attend camp for just $110 ($25 deposit + $85 due at camp). Memorize all the verses for your age level and recite them as you learn them to your adult hearer. Your hearer will report your verses to SMF via the Online Certification Dashboard. All verses must be reported by June 15, 2022.

Cumulative Scholarship for ages 3-18 – optional, higher level

Pay only your $25 deposit (no balance due at camp). After completing the Basic Scholarship, make an appointment with your pastor or church leader to recite all your age-level verses in one sitting. This is a higher level than the Basic Scholarship, but cumulative recitation will help you retain your verses in long-term memory! Click here for the Cumulative Certification Form. You are allowed up to two helps per lesson. When your pastor or church leader signs the Cumulative Certification Form, return it to SMF. All forms must be received by June 15, 2022.
