Red Willow Ministries offers programs for any time of the year! We have facilities that are open during any type of weather or season. Camps and retreats are offered year-round for all ages. We are very ecumenical in our service to all Christian organizations. We also serve non-church groups contracting with the camp for meetings, banquets, weddings, and family reunions.
Red Willow Bible Camp is…
- An outdoor ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) supported by the Eastern North Dakota Synod and its 200+ congregations.
- A ministry that seeks, through Christ-centered programming, to meet the needs of the people of these congregations and surrounding communities.
- A camp, conference, and retreat facility established in 1926 to serve youth and adults in the region. The camp can accommodate 90 overnight guests during the summer and 50 retreat guests year-round, presently serving approximately 2,000 individuals each year, with four full-time staff committed to the ministry.
- 500 acres of beautiful rolling hills and prairie with waterfront on Red Willow and Trinity Lakes (eight miles north of Binford, North Dakota) including a retreat center, ten summer cabins, a waterfront area with canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, and a pontoon, a pool, a miniature golf course, the Memorial Chapel, group challenge course, outdoor worship areas, arts and crafts cabin, hiking trails, and more, making this a place to gather, worship, learn, grow, share, serve, and recreate with others.
But it is more than just a place, it is the countless disciples brought together with a common goal of sharing the Gospel story with young and old alike, serving Christ’s church with the gifts and resources we have gratefully received from God.
