Bible Camp Welcoming Campers

Posted: Updated:

The Upper Missouri Ministries summer camp has been around for over 60 years. After a lot of updating and the addition of some brand new features, the camp is ready for another summer.

There are many opportunities for children to learn and grow at the Upper Missouri Ministries summer camp.

"(There’s) wonderful food, wonderful fellowship, and they get to learn life lessons like how to share, how to clean, things that kids maybe have challenges with. You learn social skills. They have to communicate one on one. There are no cellphones here. And they certainly learn a lot about God, through experience" explained executive camp director, Nick Johnson.

A counselor spoke of his favorite aspects of working with the campers.

"Definitely the relationships you build with them. It may be only a week, but they definitely last longer than that. It’s nice being that role mode for them, and also to be the one to show them the way of Christ. It’s great" said counselor, Reid Halvorson.

Nine-year-old, Gage Bushman, spoke of his favorite experiences from his week at Upper Missouri Ministries summer camp.

"My week here was great. We got to go to the beach, we got to read the bible and we got to play games. It was really fun. I’m going to come back a lot of times” said Bushman.

One current counselor is actually a former camper and explained why she came back to work at the summer camp.

"I think just growing up here and this is really where I grew in my faith. This is really where I learned about Jesus. I just feel so connected to God here” said counselor Kayla Rust.

Kayaking, a ropes course, and many other fun activities are offered for children of all ages.
