Our Mission Statement


"The Mission of the Coalition for Appalachian Ministry is to make a positive impact wherever Reformed tradition

and Appalachian culture come together by networking with church and community to provide educational and

service opportunities

CAM Cabin Crafts is a fair-market outlet for handcrafts made in Appalachia, which encompasses all or parts of 13 states.  

CAM Cabin Crafts is much more than a retail store.  Your purchases help over 120 crafters and artisans in Appalachia provide basic

necessities for their families.  We carry NO IMPORTED ITEMS.

The purpose of CAM Cabin Crafts is:

*To serve as an OUTLET for regional crafters and to promote their work.

* To ENCOURAGE crafters and artisans in their skills/craft/work

* To provide an ATMOSPHERE in which the realities and values of the Appalachian culture are lifted up and resources for EDUCATION in that culture are available.
