Mission for Me Camp
Children or grandchildren can accompany adults and enjoy camp on campus at the southern site at DWU, Mitchell, South Dakota. “Missions For Me” is a camp for elementary students who have completed grades 2-5.
Campers this year will learn that each person brings abilities and disabilities to God’s kingdom. Activities will include creating craft and art projects, learning songs, participating in worship, playing outside, and making friends. Campers have their sessions while the adults are in classes, but will stay with their adult guardians in the dorm at night. Colleen McKirdy leads “Mission and Me” camp.
Faithful Servants Camp
“Faithful Servants” camp is for youth completing any grade 6-13. Faithful Servants camp will be available at Southern Mission u Adults do not need to accompany participants. Overnight stay is available with chaperons for true “camp on campus” experience.
