Burnside Camp Meeting was founded in 1932 by H.L. Gregg and J.H. Rupert. It is an independent Church of God campmeeting, held on the last Friday of July for eight days thereafter. This is a family campmeeting with services for all ages.
FROM THE BEGINNING:
Founded in 1932 by H. L. Gregg and J. H. Rupert.
Groundwork for the campmeetings was laid in the early 1900’s when J. E. Rupert, along with H. M. Riggle, established the congregation of the Church of God in Burnside.
An organization meeting was held April 14, 1932, and the first campmeeting was held August 17-26, 1932.
H. L. Gregg donated a tract of land for a camp site in Burnside Township.
A blue print was prepared indicating sites for a tabernacle, dormitories, the cook house, cottages, etc.
The lumber for the tabernacle came from the J. H. Rupert farm in Emlenton.
A building in Emeigh was dismantled and the lumber used to build the girls' dormitory (which has since been razed  and replaced).
