We have two weeks of camp ministry coming up soon! The first week in August, kids ages 8-12 from the Red Lake Indian Reservation will come to Camp Oak Hills in Bemidji. CIM staff Corey & Ellie St. Peter will team up with the staff of Camp Oak Hills for a week full of fun and truth! This is the 13th year of this particular camp, and it is the result of many more years of faithful ministry before that. Last year just about 100 campers and teen helpers from Red Lake attended. Our theme this year is “Equipped”, focusing on the armor of God and prayer. This year we are short staffed, and will be able to host 40-50 kids.
Then a couple weeks later we will invite kids from Cass Lake on the Leech Lake Reservation. This is the second year for this ministry. A team all the way from a Chinese church in New Jersey comes to staff this week with the St. Peters. We are expecting about 15 campers.
With volunteered time and scholarships for the campers, we are able to offer the week at a cost of only $10 for each kid. If you would like to help financially, you can donate online at http://www.campoakhills.org/Donate.html.
Praise the Lord for camp!
