Christian Ministry: Camping Ministry Concentration

Why should I choose the Camping Program? This program is designed for students who desire to work in a Christian camp or related ministry. This program is offered in cooperation with Camp Forest Springs located in Westboro, Wisconsin. The camp site covers over 500 acres along the shores of James Lake. The camp program is strongly evangelical in faith and practice and is operated under very capable leadership. While the students are completing the first two (or three) years at Grace University, they make application for admission to Camp Forest Springs. Those selected spend a year in training at the camp site in Wisconsin. Students return to the University campus after the training at Camp Forest Springs if any requirements remain.

What type of degree will I earn at Grace University if I enroll in this program?
Graduates of the Camping Program will earn a Bachelor of Science degree.

What kind of jobs would be available to me after I graduate from Grace University with this major? 
With the Christian Camping Ministry degree Omaha students are exposed to a carefully designed program, which gives them hands on experience pertaining to the operations of a year-round Christian camp.
