Big Sandy Camp desires to provide an environment free of distractions so that the Lord can do His work in the lives of individuals that are attending camps and retreats. One distraction can be the breakdown of our equipment, for example, a hot water heater.

We have started PADDLE 365 as a “donor’s club” to support the ongoing ministry of the Camp. The purpose of this donor club is to provide a way for a donor to participate on a regular basis to support the ministry. The funds raised through PADDLE 365 will help the Camp with ongoing building repairs and maintenance so that we can provide a clean, quality, and safe environment for our guests.

We ask that a donor give a minimum of $1 per day for 365 days. Additional donations on a regular basis are welcomed.

We are praying for 365 people to join to make one person a day, so each day of the year is covered by a donor. The Camp will pray for the donor on the date of their choice during the year. Donors can request up to three different dates (see link below) in order of their preference. The Camp will schedule one prayer date, selected from the donor’s dates. We will send the donor a Camp update on a quarterly basis.

Donations can be made through our online donation site by contributing weekly, monthly, and/or a onetime gift. We will accept donations via a check and sent to our address at 52511 185th Place, McGregor MN 55760.

We have many exciting things going on at Big Sandy Camp! God is at work and we are watching to see what He has in store for us in the days ahead. We have got a few things on our wish list that we are hoping to purchase as the funding comes in. If there is something on this list that you are interested in donating to the ministry, or if you know someone who would be interested, please let us know so that we can work together to continue to improve Big Sandy Camp!
