Recently we stopped by the grounds of the Cypress Methodist Camp. We were passing and looked to see if the wildflowers had taken the meadow over. We missed it.

I did get to shoot a wide image capturing both the tabernacle and camps.

As a review;  this site was started in 1794, traveling preachers held week long meetings in rural locations like this. Campsites such as this one formed because worshipers would stay in tents for days to experience the revitalizing preaching while also enjoying a sense of community. Hence the name ‘revival meetings’.

The wooden cabins are still called tents and some are hundreds years old.

Each year, in September, a week long camp meeting continues the tradition.

There are several campgrounds like this still active in South Carolina.
