LONE WOLF, Oklahoma -- The Quartz Mountain Christian Camp is asking parents to pick up their children at the Church of Christ in Hobart.

Children at this camp are from western Oklahoma and northern Texas. There are a total of 217 children and staff who were evacuated from this camp Wednesday afternoon due to the wildfire on King Mountain near Lone Wolf.

Unfortunately, many of the camper's personal belongings are still at the camp and they are unable to return at this time due to the fire.

The camp's director said they were allowed to return to the camp last night around 8:30 p.m., but were evacuated again at 2:00 a.m.

This camp's final day was originally scheduled to end Friday.

The Southwest Baptist Assembly Family Camp remains sheltered at the First Baptist Church in Hobart.

Nearly 200 people from four churches were at this camp when they were asked to evacuate on Wednesday. Members of a Kansas Church left to return home Wednesday night. Members of a Church from Amarillo left Thursday morning to return home.

Members of the Calvary Baptist Church from Oklahoma City remain in Hobart along with members of a Church from Dallas.

It's unclear if this camp will stay another night at the First Baptist Church in Hobart. This camp was scheduled to end Saturday.

American Red Cross teams are back on the mountain with firefighters providing beverages and food to the first responders. Volunteers also provided dinner and breakfast to the campers who have been displaced due to the fire.
