Come join us for the Feast of Sukkot in the idyllic Appalachian foothills of Sassafras Mountain.
This bucolic camp is nestled in the SC mountains, with greenery, woods, the sound of the trout stocked creek that runs on along the property, and the large mountain rock face in the background. From the camp it’s a four mile drive up to the top of Sassafras Mountain, the highest point in South Carolina, with its new observation deck with stunning views.
The camp has a pond, a fire pit, two play ground areas and a putt putt mini golf course. The spring fed pond also collects waters running off the mountain, and is stocked with bass, crappie, brim and catfish, in addition to the occasional trout. One does not need a fishing license for this pond; fishing is included in the camp.
This feast site welcomes feast goers with various backgrounds and encourages everyone who would, to share and be involved using your gifting, talents, abilities and understandings. There will be two family style Shabbat meals provided featuring many organic ingredients and also a gluten free option at each meal. A children's ministry is also available for children ages 4-13.
We will have breakout sessions throughout the week as well as live music, mid-rash sessions each morning, and lots of time to fellowship with friends and family.
This festival is one of the festivals mentioned in scripture in Deuteronomy 16 and Leviticus 23.
During Sukkot, God specifically asks that we not appear before Him empty handed. There will be opportunities throughout the week to give offerings. Some of the funds will go directly to Rocky Bottom Camp for the Blind. Some funds will go to scholarships to help families who would not otherwise be able to attend. And still others will go to replenish the funds of the organizations putting on the feasts so that more of these feast days can be celebrated in the future.
Deuteronomy 16:16 Three times a year all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks and the Festival of Tabernacles. No one should appear before the LORD empty-handed:
2 Corinthians 9:7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Please come prepared to participate and enjoy God's wonderful creation while we celebrate His wonderful Feast!
