There are lots of ways to give toward the ministry at Crescent Lake Bible Camp. Check out some of the options below, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.


MICHAEL RHODE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
(EST. MAY 2006)


Michael Rhode was a friend and employee of Crescent Lake Bible Camp. He had a true servant's heart and, above all else, desired to see children come to the Lord. His ambition was to serve God while working at CLBC full time. On March 2, 2006, Mike passed away at the age of 21. Because of Mike's love for children, it was his family's desire to see a scholarship fund established in Mike's name. The Michael Rhode Memorial Scholarship is now used to send children to Camp who otherwise couldn't afford it. This gives those kids an opportunity to hear the Gospel.

If you would like to contribute to the Michael Rhode Memorial Scholarship Fund and make it possible for children to attend CLBC, please click on the "Donate" button to make a donation online.


COLIANNI-GEIGLER TREK YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP FUND



The writers of The Trek have written a program called "BASICS" which helps At-Risk / Adjudicated youth make the decisions they need to turn their lives around. So far, none of the At-Risk youth who have completed the program have reoffended! All tax-deductible donations to this Fund are used to provide scholarships for some very special students to get them to Camp!

Contributions can be mailed to the Crescent Lake Bible Camp office at:

2750 Bible Camp Road
Rhinelander, WI 54501

or contact us at (715) 203-0500 to learn more about how to donate to this scholarship fund.


Amazon Smile


Looking for an easy way to be part of the ministry at CLBC? If you shop on Amazon, you are half-way there! AmazonSmile allows you to select a charity, such as “Crescent Lake Bible Fellowship Camp” and every time you purchase, Amazon will donate a portion of that sale to us. It is a great way to do something for God’s Kingdom while buying simple things like books, music and even toilet paper! Just look for the “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” label.


Capital Projects


Crescent Lake Bible Camp is in the middle of a period of unprecedented growth. God has been doing some amazing things and we would love to have your help as we begin to minister to new groups, including At-Risk / Adjudicated Youth, Active Older Adult, area schools and Special Needs populations, just to name a few. Our current needs for capital projects include:


ADAPTIVE PROGRAM EQUIPMENT
($13,000.00)

Some time ago, we had a boy come to camp who was visually-impaired. He wanted to participate in the programs, just like all of the other campers his age and so, with a lot of creativity on the part of our Maintenance Staff, we created audible targets for Riflery and Archery; adapted our Primitive Hunting curriculum and more! But our goal is not to have to create "temporary" solutions; instead we would like to purchase the materials that would allow anyone to participate in any of our programs. To do this, we have come up with a list of Adaptive Program Equipment that we want to be able to use with our camping seasons. Can you help us as we change our programs to allow everyone to participate at the same level?


ADAPTIVE WATERSKIING PROGRAM
($58,000.00)

At Crescent Lake Bible Camp, we don't want anyone to be unable to participate in our programs! After long discussions with Dale and Desi Haskins, our Waterskiing Ministry Coordinators, we have decided that we would like to purchase a ski boat and specifically equip it so that it can serve youth and adults who, because of limited ability, may not be able to participate. The gear we would purchase would allow "partner" skiing to assist the visually-impaired and even adaptive gear that allows campers in wheelchairs to participate! Can you help us as we strive to make Crescent Lake programs accessible to everyone who wants to attend?


CABIN UPGRADES
($70,000.00)

Crescent Lake Bible Camp has already raised $26,000.00 through the generous donations of our supporters and, in fact, a number of project have already been completed. We have done renovations to the Bathhouse, Jones Cabin, Arena and we have replaced a number of the roofs. We still have a long way to go, however, and we could use your help! Here is a hands-on way to make a difference in someone’s life and to help us share the love of Christ with youth and families for years to come!


WHEELCHAIR-ACCESSIBLE PONTOON BOAT
($32,000.00)

As stated above, we are trying to make Crescent Lake Bible Camp programs available to anyone who wants to attend, regardless of ability! We have already missed out on opportunities because our regular pontoon boat cannot accommodate children in wheelchairs. We don't want to turn anyone away or have to tell them that they cannot participate! Can you help us by contributing to the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible pontoon boat that will open up the beauty of Crescent Lake to all of our campers?

Wish List


ANTIQUE TOOLS
(PRICE VARIES)


We have continued to expand our outreach through the Northern Lakes Impact Center. Because of their work, we have had literally thousands of youth, adults and families visit Crescent Lake Bible Camp - people who may never have come otherwise. To help them with their project, we are seeking any antique hand tools for their "living history" programs. Any donation - in any condition - would be greatly appreciated!


BRAILLE COMPASSES
($69.50 EACH)


Each year, Crescent Lake Bible Camp and the Northern Lakes Impact Center work with youth and adults with different abilities. It is our goal for everyone to be able to participate fully in all activities. Because of this, we need to purchase some special equipment. One of the items that we would love to have available would be two braille compasses for our Compass Course.These are available from www.moontrail.com.


SILVA COMPASS KIT
($285.60 + S&H)


Our partnership with the Northern Lakes Impact Center has given us some great opportunities for program growth. If you look at our Family Camp schedule, you will see a lot of "new" activities that come from NLIC curriculum. To help them out, we're looking for someone who would be willing to provide a compass kit for teaching youth, adults and families. You can find out more about these kits at www.cspforestry.com.


UTILITY VEHICLE WITH SNOW PLOW
($15,000.00)


During Summer Camp, it's often difficult to drive large trucks through the camp area. With youth, adult and day campers in the area, it would be a blessing to have a smaller maintenance vehicle that would allow us to get tools and materials into the cabin areas without blocking access or requiring the staff to drive full-sized trucks through the areas where campers are. This Utility Vehicle will also be used to groom the cross-country ski trails in the winter as well as plow areas that are hard to reach with the full-size truck.


GOLF CARTS
(NEW OR USED)


Crescent Lake Bible Camp has a beautiful facility, but with the long distances between parts of camp, we need to be able to respond to emergencies quickly and with the proper gear. Currently, our golf carts are used by our Health Officers to haul the “big green bags” full of band-aids, ice packs, and other higher level equipment necessary to properly attend to injuries and medical needs. The carts are also used to transport water jugs so that our campers are kept hydrated and healthy. These carts are reaching their age limit and need to be replaced. For the style we need, a donation of $3,000 will allow us to add one new golf cart.


LAWN MOWER
($13,000.00)


Crescent Lake Bible Camp is blessed with the right balance of manicured lawns and wild forests, but to keep it looking nice as well as perfect for those nice afternoon walks, we need to replace our current mower. We are looking for help to secure funding for a new zero-turn radius deck mower that will enable us to keep CLBC camper-ready for the next decade (or more!).


SWIVEL ROCKERS
($300.00 each)


The front porch of the Dining Hall is a great place to rest, relax and catch up with family and friends. We would like to make it even more comfortable by adding adirondack-style swivel rockers!
