COVID-19 Response

Dear Campers,
As many of you are aware, Coronavirus (COVID-19) is making news, and to date there are no reports of COVID-19 at Camp JIM. The health and safety of our guests has been and will continue to be our utmost priority. We have preventative measures set in place that align with CDC and MN Department of Health guidelines to mitigate the risk of transmission.   At this time we are monitoring the situation closely have decided to continue to take registrations for upcoming summer camps. In the event we have to cancel, we will offer you 3 options:  1 full refund, 2. leave monies in your account for a future event or 3. donate part of all of your fee.   We hope and pray you all stay safe and healthy and praise God for his sovereignty in all things including this pandemic.

In regards to Youth Camps:  We are equipped to provide safe, quality youth camps, pending the MN Governor allowing camps to happen. 

As on May 25 we will be allowed to have day camps, but we are still restricted from having overnight camps.  The governor has stated that the situation is fluid and may change either way. 

Currently Youth Camps will happen, but will be limited to a day camp.  We are working on those details at this time.

Overnight camps are for now closed, but may change as the situation changes.   As we get to the date scheduled we will contact registered campers to advise and will offer refunds if needed.

Thank you all so much for your patience during this time,
The Camp JIM Staff  5/22/20

Summer Camps 2020

Our theme this summer is "Stick to the Mission" with the theme verse of Joshua 1:7

“Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.”
