Thrivent Matches $1 For Every $2 On December 1
Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to make our community stronger one act of giving at a time. Camp Okoboji is honored to be one of Thrivent’s 2020 Giving Tuesday partners! Together, we’re raising funds to further the Kingdom of Christ through Camp Okoboji’s ministry! Camp Okoboji has been an integral part of many families, campers, and guests’ lives since 1940. For decades, those staying at Camp Okoboji have been REFRESHED IN BODY - reuniting with friends, engaging in recreation, and having access to West Okoboji Lake - AND SPIRIT - summer Sunday services, evening Campfire devotions, youth discipleship camps, and family discipleship camps. We are focused on improving our facilities - dorm cabin conversions, Family Ministry Cabin updates, long range planning - and our discipleship experiences - enhancing Family Ministry, providing a second Cub Week, developing new programs like Music Therapy Camp for Veterans. This Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for you to ensure that Camp Okoboji continues to be a heritage for thousands of households and campers! Here are three great ways for you to support Camp Okoboji in the next couple of weeks:
