Then submit a copy of your registration form showing the name of the camper, camp session name, camp date, and balance due.

NEWS FROM THE ISLAND
Summer Registration: It might be freezing outside but we're planning for Summer 2024! Registration will open up on January 2nd. Our registration is completely online on our website. If people have questions about registering, they can contact the office at 218-583-2905. ALL program descriptions will also be on our website. We will be sending out summer brochures in January as well.
Summer Staff: The summer staff application is open! We've posted the link on our Facebook and Instagram pages and also on our website. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! Each year we struggle to fully staff our summers but the more people we have advocating for young people to work at camp, the better our recruiting goes. To view the positions we're hiring for, go to www.islandcamp.org/summer-employment. There's something for everyone!
Confirmation Weekends: Confirmation Weekends are weekends that are fully programmed. In other words, Olivia plans and executes everything from the songs to the games to the campfire devotions! These weekends are great for smaller confirmation classes because multiple churches come and the kids are able to socialize and meet other confirmands. If your church is interested, they can contact Olivia at email@example.com.
End of the Year Gifts: We are hoping to raise $100,000 before the end of the year to fully cover our operating costs! Right now we have raised $50,883.99. Please consider giving a year end gift or a gift towards the ERC renovation (more info about that below).
ERC Renovation Update:
GOAL: $2-2.3 million
$1.2 million available now for construction

$280,304 raised toward the matching grant so far
Give today at www.islandcamp.org/renovation! Send in a check or give with credit card over the phone. Please specify that you'd like your gift to go towards the ERC matching grant. Direct questions to Stacy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
