The 90th Homecoming celebration at Oak Hills held August 26th-28th was a tremendous success. The weekend was a unique blend of rich history, live music, fabulous food, poignant testimonies, and just plain frivolity, with almost 200 alumni, staff, faculty and students coming together. Attendance this year was enhanced by the intentional timing of the event to allow current students and alumni to mingle and share perspectives from the past, as well as the present.
Alumni to Celebrate Oak Hills’ 90th Anniversary
CELEBRATING THE PAST
90 years ago six men met under a large oak tree and prayed, “Lord, give us this land.” They asked God to give them this piece of land for a Christian camp and training center. They raised $250 to purchase 14 acres of shoreline on Lake Marquette. The dream was fully realized the next summer when Camp Oak Hills was born, followed two decades later by the opening of Oak Hills Christian Training School.
