Get connected!

Does your church have a camp booster? A booster is a volunteer who has a passion for camp ministry and who is called to promote camp in your congregation. We would love to add your booster to our contact list! To learn more, email Beth Fredrickson at bfredrickson@harborpointministries.org.

Raise local scholarship funds!

If you would like ideas for how to raise money to help your church’s campers go to summer or retreat programs, reach out to Beth Fredrickson at bfredrickson@harborpointministries.org for ideas.

Pray for camp!

Each spring, Harbor Point Ministries invites volunteer prayer partners to pray personally for one staff member at either camp during the summer. Prayer Partners may select their camp or staff person or receive a random assignment. They learn their staff person’s camp, name and position, as well as mailing and email addresses. To get your name on the summer 2020 list, click here.

Visit with camp!

The camp ministry is delighted to visit with your congregation on a Sunday morning or during a midweek family or youth program. To learn about options for church visits reach out to Beth Fredrickson at bfredrickson@harborpointminstries.org.

Governance

Both camps are governed by the Harbor Point Ministries Board of Directors. Board members represent all the churches of the Central Conference. The churches gather for the Harbor Point Ministries Annual Meeting each spring in conjunction with the Central Conference Celebration/Annual Meeting.
