Camp is a great place to meet new friends, discover more about what it means to be a Christian, and find out how the Almighty God wants to be in a relationship with you! With hilarious skits, personal messages, fun at the lake playing games, and hanging out, this will be a week you never forget! 

 

A Note about Confirmation Camp: Held in conjunction with Junior High camps, Confirmation Camp at Okoboji is designed for pastors, youth directors, and other confirmation leaders to lead their own teaching time if they so choose, or have camp staff lead our summer Bible studies.

Senior High Camp at Okoboji- July 12-17

 

This year, campers will engage in dialogue about some of the central ideas of our Christian faith. The Alpha Youth series provides an opportunity for youth to understand the basics, gain a strong foundation in truth, and be able to communicate faith with others. Here are some highlights:

 

· DEEPER, STRONGER FAITH

· DAY OF SERVICE

· FUN, FUN, AND MORE FUN

· LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

 

Building a strong faith foundation is a great step in becoming a leader in your youth group, church, and community. However, one of the most exciting parts of the new Senior High Camp vision is that after you go through the week as a camper for the first time, you can return as a leader for other first-time campers. This returning role will include specific leadership training, special Bible studies and discussions, surprise fun activities, and an opportunity to use your gifts and talents to serve in some capacity. Don’t wait, register today!
