VOLUNTEER DAY AT CAMP OKOBOJI!

August 24, 2019:  VOLUNTEER DAY

Preparations have begun for our next Volunteer Day at Camp!  We anticipate growing our Volunteer participation and would love to host many of you to help us beautify, repair and assist us in improving on our Value of Excellence at Camp!!  We will provide overnight lodging and all meals for volunteers who come to assist.  Again it will be a Saturday Volunteer Day with Day Camp activities and daycare provided for our younger families.  While parents assist with volunteer projects, their children will be introduced to Camp with crafts, games, and other activities.  Volunteer Day would be a great opportunity to create a group servant activity or a youth servant event and grow community within your congregation!!  Please encourage groups from your congregation to come and enjoy a fun day of serving their Lord at Camp Okoboji!  Advance sign up with the office would help with arrangements for lodging and meals.  We do have groups planning to come and volunteer for multiple days and longer stays and we welcome this approach, also.  Longer stays for volunteering can be arranged through the office.  Also, if groups want to volunteer throughout the year, please feel free to make arrangements through our Camp Director, Kellie Jones.

KIDS COME FIRST NEWS- AUGUST 2019

Summer has been a blast down at Kids Come First!

         This summer we’ve had the opportunity to care for 25 or more kids daily! On our busiest day, we had 39 kids!  All of the Kids Come First staff love watching these children learn and grow into wonderful humans.  Our kids LOVE playing in the new playground and enjoy all the time we are able to be outside.  We have taken the older kids on scavenger hunts and tried some interesting science experiments.  We’ve also been working on some math problems and have two boys that are math geniuses!  The kids have enjoyed having water days and they loved going to Vacation Bible School.   We still have so much to do before summer is over!
