Nehemiah Work Days
Rapidan Baptist Camp could not continue without the help of willing volunteers. Twice a year the camp hosts a Nehemiah Work Days, where volunteers come help with various projects on the campsite for a few hours.
Just as the people in Nehemiah’s day built the walls of Jerusalem in record time by focusing on the portion assigned them, so a single person can make a huge difference at Rapidan Baptist Camp, even in the smallest job.
Dates: May 3 & 4; October 11 & 12
When: Work starts around 9 AM. You are free to leave whenever needed, but we generally finish around 3 or 4 PM.
What: Work, fellowship, and food.
Lunch is provided. Please call our office at (540) 672-0426 to let us know you plan to come so we can be sure to have enough food. We look forward to serving shoulder-to-shoulder with you!
Team Rapidan is an organized group of volunteers that love Camp Rapidan and who are willing to get involved when needs arise. To learn more or to sign up, click here.

Would you help the camp raise an average of $11 per year doing something you already do? Here is how it works.
Step 1: Instead of using Google or Yahoo as your search engine, go to www.goodsearch.com.
Step 2: On the line that reads: “Who do you goodsearch for?” type in Rapidan Baptist Camp and click verify. (It should return Rapidan Baptist Camp, Rochelle, VA.)
Step 3: Bookmark www.goodsearch.com and use it each time you need to search online.
The camp will receive on average .01 per search. If 100 people make an average of 3 searches per day, that would generate $1,100.00 per year – $11.00 per person, per year. You can even follow our progress click the “Amount Raised” button below our name.
There is also a toolbar that you can download to your browser to make searching and helping camp easier!
Memorial Gifts are a great way to honor a loved one or friend. When you choose to send a gift in this way, you can designate your gift in one of three different ways. One, you can help with the general budget needs of the camp. Two, you can contribute to the camper assistance program, which will allow campers to attend camp who may not have the financial means to come otherwise. Three, you can contribute to the future development and improvements of the camp. Memorial contributions will be noted in future editions of our newsletter.
Fundraising for Your Ministry
A great way to be a blessing to the ministry of Rapidan Baptist camp and to help your organization is to spend a weekend working at Rapidan on a special project or two.
Here’s how it works: your group finds people to sponsor them for every hour they spend working at Rapidan Baptist Camp. For example, if your group schedules Friday and Saturday as work days, and someone sponsors one of your workers for $1.00 an hour, that person could earn $16.00 for 16 hours of work.
So as not to be misunderstood, we believe strongly that all of your tithes should go to your local church. The gifts that are sent to Rapidan should be those funds which are given above and beyond your tithe.
