Summer Camps


Summer Camps in 2024

The Lake Okoboji United Methodist Camp is ready for another fantastic summer. We are looking forward to morning wake up calls, afternoons at the Lake, evenings around the campfire, and everything in-between. For over a century, campers have been coming to Lake Okoboji UM Camp. We know this summer will be the best one yet!

Week-long campers ages 9-17 can experience the famous Adventure Camps, the biggest and best way to experience camp. Adventure Campers take part in the exciting Okoboji Journey Program each full day of camp. If you’re looking for a little something, extra make sure to check out the Adventure Camp Upgrades (Go-Karts, Amusement Park, Teen Week, and Aerial Park) that allow you to take your event to the next level. 

For younger campers aged 6-9, Short Stacks camp is a huge hit! Two action packed days and nights at camp filled with classic camp activities. We also offer Day Camp events for a fun-filled day of activities and faith development.

You’ll find opportunities for the entire family at Okoboji, too! Guardian & Angel overnights are a long-standing and ever popular choice for our youngest campers to experience Okoboji with a special adult Guardian. The Okoboji Family Camp is for families of all ages and sizes to come together for an exciting two-night adventure that will create lifetime memories!

You won’t want to miss out on some of the exciting year-round events like the annual Sled Head Breakfast during the Okoboji Winter Games. Come get a taste of what camp is like, at our Neighbor Night Summer Kickoff, where we start the summer off in style.

Generations of youth and adults know that the Lake Okoboji United Methodist Camp has been a place set apart to make new friends, learn new skills, develop self-confidence, and grow together in faith while amongst caring, Christian staff. Come see for yourself why Lake Okoboji United Methodist Camp is the place to be this summer!
