We can’t wait to welcome you!
As you prepare for a faith-filled experience at NeSoDak, here are some tips and information to assist in the process. Medical information and scholarship forms are submitted online to assure security and privacy. To fill out the health information, please log-in to your registration account (use the login button at the top of the website.) More fun and helpful information is found below. Please contact us if you have any questions about you or your child’s faith experience.
Please know you and your child’s safety and faith development is our chief concern. Our goal is for each camper to have fun, grow in leadership, develop and nurture friendships, and to strengthen their faith. We promise to do all we can to make that happen. Please call with any questions you have about this faith-filled adventure. And thank you for sharing your precious child and time with us.
While at NeSoDak, we are blessed to have the excellent young leaders sharing their faith. Your child will be part of a cabin group with a counselor always present. Grace-filled Christian community, friendship, and teamwork are emphasized. Active Bible study, creative devotions and worship leadership opportunities are included as part of daily faith nurturing. Our year-round staff will also be present throughout the week providing leadership to our summer staff. They can be reached at 605-947-4440

Depending on your camp program, you will find yourself spending your time at camp in either our 10- cabins or in the Sorensen Lodge. All week-long youth campers will spend their time in cabins, while intergenerational programs and family camps will spend their time in the Sorensen Lodge or cabins.
Arrival: Check-in is at 4 pm. Please wait to arrive until that time as our staff will be preparing for your arrival prior to registration.
Departure/Closing Worship: Our time comes to a close with closing worship at 11 am on your final day of camp. If you are attending a partial week of camp, please see your registration for date in which your program ends.
Campers will have an opportunity to purchase food, drinks and souvenirs at the camp store each day. T-shirts, sweatshirts and other clothing range in price from $12-$35. Campers will set up a canteen account during check-in. Purchases will be deducted from the account throughout the week and the balance will be refunded on the last day of the camp session.
