Individuals, families, and businesses that partner with Prairie River Camp play a major role in the success of the ministry.  Whether it is a one time gift, monthly support, or donations of material goods, we would ask you to consider partnering with the ministry of Prairie River Camp.
Financial Support

Scholarship Fund

Each summer, over 80% of the students who attend Prairie River Camp receive a scholarship of some kind.  Many of these students receive full scholarships.  Without these scholarships, these students would not be able to experience a life changing week at camp.  Financial gifts given to the Scholarship Fund go directly to sending young people to camp.

General Operating  Fund

Without a scholarship fund we wouldn't have nearly as many campers to serve, and without a operating fund, we wouldn't have have anything to offer the kids once they arrived.  A healthy general operating fund enables us to keep the lights on, provide delicious food, and meet a variety of other important needs. The salaries of our staff are also taken from the general operating fund.

Construction Fund

Construction projects are ongoing at Prairie River Camp.  Currently we are in the middle of building a dining hall and storm shelter facility. We also have plans for construction of a lake as well as several more buildings.  All money donated to the building fund goes to finance the construction of these projects.
