It was a beautiful day for our Sweet Corn & Quilt Festival with 850 attending on Sunday August 13, 2017. The day was filled with community and creation as people gathered to celebrate Bible Camp. People hung out under trees and talked about their lives and shared their story.

As people gathered in the Chapel for worship, all were invited to praise God for 1,469 campers this summer (the 2016 total was 1,301). Then it was off to the Lodge for the Sweet Corn Feed that included mouth watering sweet corn, beef on a bun, and fixings.   As people sat, they chatted and shared conversation with new people and old friends.   They shared their favorite camp story and many listened to summer camp missionary stories from this summer.

Finally at 1:30pm, the Live Auction began.   And oh what fun it was for 2 hours of bidding and celebrating.   The beautiful quilts and story of life changing camp inspired people to bid generously as they gave to their camp. With your help UMM was able to raise $ 53,000 in one day .

So Thank YOU for your generosity to the 1,469 summer campers. With your support, it is possible for us to continue to change the lives of each camper who attends your camp. We appreciate your participation in Upper Missouri Ministries and look forward to continued support and growth in our ministries in the coming years.


Upper Missouri Ministries is located on 203 acres on the shores of Springbrook Dam. The shore line surrounds most of the camp site, which is on a peninsula nestled in the coulee bottom.

This is a perfect setting for kids and families to experience the Love and Grace of Jesus through time in creation and community that allows faith in Christ Jesus to be sparked.

Children (of all ages) are in need of a place to slow down and reconnect with nature and other people. And we all need to reconnect with the Love and Grace of God found in Jesus. Time at Camp UMM provides experiences in services, worship, study, and quiet time. Campers return to their homes, families, and communities with faith in Christ Jesus that is sparked and with tools that will allow them to weather the storms of life.
