an unforgettable summer experience


where campers explore exciting activities


in a caring, Christian environment

Lake Okoboji United Methodist Camp

Just off the shores of West Lake Okoboji lies over 100 beautiful acres of camp, conference and retreat opportunities in the heart of the Iowa Great Lakes Vacation land.

“An Unforgettable summer experience.”

Our mission 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.
