Rules of the Camp
SLEEPING: The accommodations at Camp Zion are different from most assembly grounds or camps. The sleeping quarters are big open buildings filled with double-decker cots. All the men and boys are together in one big barrack-style building and all the women in another barrack-style building. There are no rooms for families, for husband and wife to stay together, or individual groups. All stay together in one of the buildings. Men and women separate.

MOTELS: Motels are available in the area: New Albany-6 miles. Tupelo-30 miles. Holly Springs-20 miles. Ripley-18 miles. Pontotoc-20 miles. New Albany, Tupelo, and Holly Springs are all on HWY 78 which is 4 lanes, 70 MPH, running between Memphis and Birmingham.

MEALS: Meals are served family style in a big dining hall with everybody eating together at the same time. Much of the food is given by Myrtle Baptist Church and interested friends. Churches and individuals bring jellies, preserves, pickles, canned vegetables and meats to help the Camp to provide the meals. This is all placed on the altar and dedicated before we prepare it and serve it.

SERVICES: The services are conducted under a big tabernacle which seats over 2,500 people. The services are conducted all day and at night. The services consist of preaching, praying, singing, testimonies, and Bible Study. The services are conducted just as the Holy Spirit leads and not by a printed program.
