Organized in 1988, the Auxiliary is associated with Camp Okoboji.
The Auxiliary serves at the direction of and in cooperation with the Camp Okoboji Board of Directors. The purpose of the Auxiliary is to serve as a “helpmate” to the Board of Directors; to Pray for, Promote, and Participate in God’s ministry at Camp Okoboji.
