Club Hollywood is a brand new event in 2016 at Lake Okoboji United Methodist Camp and Retreat Center. Youth from age nine to sixteen can attend this Adventure Camp on July 18-23. The movie-themed week will enable young people to meet new friends and “enjoy the latest Hollywood Blockbuster!”
Adventure Camps are offered each year with exciting themes. Campers stay together in cabins and have access to a variety of summer activities from crafts and games to swimming.
Upgrades provide “super-charged additions” that take Adventure Camp “to the next level!” Available for an additional fee, campers who choose an upgrade will have access to the aerial course and a trip to a local amusement park beyond normal camp programming.
The mission of the camp is “to provide sacred space where Jesus Christ transforms lives, persons grow in Christian discipleship and leaders are developed to empower their local churches in the world; and to facilitate this mission through Christian hospitality.”
Parents can rest assured that the camp’s facilities and programming are accredited by the American Camp Association. Financial aid is also available for campers.
The Iowa Conference is investing $100,000 in 2016 for the ministry of Camp Okoboji. These funds are made possible by the apportionment gifts of local United Methodist churches throughout the state.
