The cost for this camp includes the privilege to enjoy and participate in the Camp Program for the week (including an outing to Arnolds Park), room and board for the week, the use of the Camp and sports equipment, and insurance for costs of injuries not covered by your family policy.

Honors Camp is a camp within a camp. The purpose of Honors Camp is to offer a special program of activity, study, service projects, and fun for 40 responsible young ladies and gentlemen who have completed the 9th grade (entering 10th grade in the Fall of 2019). Due to available housing, our Honors Camp is limited to 40 young people. The Honors Camp Program focuses on Peer Ministry Training, Team Building, and overall equipping and strengthening the Christian foundations of young people. In addition, Honors Campers will participate in special service projects as an opportunity to give back thanks for the blessings Honors Campers have been given through their Camp experience. For these service projects, Honors Campers will need to bring with them work clothes and work gloves.

No Cash will be accepted at the Camp Store after Registraton Day until the closing on Saturday morning. Your cash will need to be deposited in the bank. Daily bank hours are offered for you in the camp store. All unused money in your account will be refunded to you on Saturday morning.

Need a ride to camp? There will be a bus that starts in Miller, SD, and will end at Camp Okoboji. The route will be determined based on where riders are from. The cost is $15 one way and $25 round trip. Contact Pastor Brown at Zion Lutheran Church in Mitchell, SD with any questions.
