It seems like summer is still a long ways away, but it is never too early to start thinking of Summer Bible Camps.  There are a couple of different options for youth ages 3rd grade through 12th grade in our area.  

The Presbyterian Camp called Lakeshore Center at Okoboji and the Lost Timber Bible Camp in Chandler are just a short distance away.


Somtimes parents look at the cost of camps and feel that thye cannot afford to send their children to camp.  There are several different options available to help bring the cost of camp to an affordable amount for everyone, no matter what your income.


Our church provides $100.00 per camper and the Presbyterian Women's Association provides $25.00 per camper.  The Presbytery of Minnesota Valleys also has a $75.00 scholarship available for each camper. (The Presbytery scholarship should be applied for early because there are limited funds available.)  Also, the camp at Okoboji believes that every child should get to attend a camp like Lakeshore no matter what.  Thanks to many gifts to their sholarship fund, assistance is available for all campers.  Lost Timber Bible Camp also has assistance available for campers.  


The brochures for the Lakeshore Center at Okoboji are available on the table in the entryway.  Or you can go to their website


Information for the Lost Timber Bible Camp information is available on line at
