Optional Ways to Give to Otyokwah Camp and Retreat Center
As much as anything, we need prayer for this ministry. We would love to have a group of people committed to regular prayer for Camp Otyokwah. In order for you to be specific in your prayers, we would like to be able to periodically send you specific needs and concerns via our e-newsletter. Please contact us and provide your email address indicating you would like to be one of our prayer partners.
Each year we rely on the generous support of camp friends to help make this ministry possible. These sacrificial gifts allow us to keep summer camper fees at a reasonable level where all young people can attend overnight/residential camp. It would make it very difficult for children and youth to attend summer camp if we had to charge them what it actually costs to operate the facility and program. Every year we seek to raise at least 10% of our operations budget through contributions.
Because of the generous giving of Great Lakes Conference individuals and churches, as well as gifts from other friends of Camp Otyokwah AND because of a larger than anticipated settlement from the insurance company, all added to the generous gift from the Great Lakes Foundation –
Hopewell Hall (the new dining hall) at Camp Otyokwah is now paid off and camp is DEBT FREE!!
Some folks have been asking “What is the next project?” “Where can we continue to give?” We are launching into the next project which will be to build a new SHOWER HOUSE to replace the current one. (Actually, we are moving to the next step of the original campaign.)
More information will be forthcoming to begin our solicitation for this project. We anticipate a generous participation from all who have been involved in this Campaign to build a better Camp Otyokwah. We will continue to… “Build the Future Together, Now!!”
Camp enabling items such as vehicles, equipment, tools, supplies, etc. are very much appreciated and play an important role in how we maintain a lower cost structure in the operation of Otyokwah Camp and Retreat Center. Some items on our current wish list include:
backpack leaf blower
digital video camera- Donated!!
snow blower – Donated!!
Gifts of stock may be made to Camp Otyokwah by contacting us at (419) 883-3854. Please consult your tax advisor regarding the benefits of donating appreciated stocks.
However you choose to support Camp Otyokwah, please know your love and dedication to the ministry is extremely appreciated!
