Work Day

How do you prepare for a thousand kids anxiously waiting to come to camp? You have a work day!

Cabins are cleaned, benches are repaired, walls are painted, gardens are planted, and much more is accomplished. Warm caramel rolls, chocolate chip cookies and a hearty lunch give fuel to the workers who give their time, talents and endless energy to ready the camp for summer. The 2023 Work Day is set for Saturday, June 3, 2023 at 9:00 am. JOIN US!

Quilt Auction

The Metigoshe Ministries Quilt Auction is an annual event held to raise funds to provide stipends for the nearly 45 college-aged staff hired as summer counselors.

Local churches, women’s groups, and individuals donate handmade quilts, afghans, wall-hangings, etc. to be auctioned off live during the event. Smaller items like framed photographs are placed on tables and sold through a silent auction. If you would like to get involved or need more information, please call the camp office at 701-263-4788. The 2023 Quilt Auction is June 24, 2023 at 10:00 am.

Want to donate a quilt to the auction? Please download this form to submit your quilt to the auction. Quilts must be at the Christian Center on or before May 5 in order to be in the auction. Quilts received after this date will be auctioned off at the next year’s auction.

Mother the Camp

Help fill your Bible camp’s pantry by “mothering our camp.” Any of the items listed here are food stuffs we eat a lot of at camp.

Your donations add up to a significant cost savings. Drop off your groceries at the Christian Center, summer camp at Pelican Lake, or at your church in the month of May.

The next time you are grocery shopping for your family, keep an eye open for the big #10 cans of fruits, vegetables, and sauces. The large cans are easier for us to store, and when those hundreds of hungry campers come through the line, those big cans are easier to open and serve!

NOTE: We now have special ketchup and mustard dispensers. That is exciting, so we will not need ketchup and mustard as a Mother the Camp item.
