Two Sites?

Ingham Okoboji is blessed to be a two-site ministry. That means that we have two different locations- Ingham Lake Bible Camp, and Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp. This allows us to offer different programs at the same time, and gives us the opportunity to reach even more people with the Good News of Jesus Christ! 

Check out each site: 

Ingham Lake Bible Camp


Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp

Can non-Lutherans Come to Camp?

Definitely! We welcome campers from all Christian backgrounds, as well as campers who do not yet have a faith.

Food allergies and dietary needs are a very real concern for a growing number of our campers. We accomodate for most food allergies and dietary requirements to keep our campers healthy while joining us. Please make sure to note specific allergies or dietary needs on your registration form so we can best prepare for your safety. 

Please call us at 1-800-OKOBOJI with any questions or concerns. 

Do You Have Handicapped Accessible Housing?

We have many housing options for campers with special housing needs- including housing with ramps, no stairs, and accessible bathrooms. Please make sure to note your special housing needs on your registration form, or give us a call at 1-800-OKOBOJI. 

Do You Have WiFi?

WiFi access is available for our adult campers and retreat guests. You may request the password upon arrival at the Welcome Center desk. 

Please note: high usage and our location may mean that our internet could run slowly- please take that into account!

How Can I Send Mail to my Camper?

Camper mail is always lots of fun for our campers! To make sure that your camper receives their mail from you, please be sure to send it early in the week, or even send it before the camper joins us at camp.

Camper Name

I'm Registering Online- Do I Have an Online Account?

If you've been a camper with us before, or if your children have been a camper in the past, chances are that you have an online account! 

Your online account is a secure way to register for camp- and the account saves most of your contact information so you don't have to enter it again. You can register more than one camper, register for more than one program, manage camp opportunities for your whole family, and make payments using your online account. 

Not sure if you have an account? Forgot your username or password? Give us a call at 1-800-OKOBOJI!

What is Your Cancellation Policy?

Most Camp programs require a deposit. All deposits are non-refundable. Your deposit may be transferred to another program within the calendar year (for example, if your camper can't come to Trailblazers #1, you can transfer the deposit to Trailblazers #3 within the same year). 

The only exception to this policy is if a camper isn't able to attend due to illness or injury. (We reserve the right to require a doctor's note before deposit is refunded.)


For non-programmed retreats, please contact our Retreat Coordinator for full Retreat cancellation policy- call 1-800-OKOBOJI.
