With over 50 years in existence, the ministry of Big Lake Youth Camp continues to inspire thousands of campers, staff, families and friends each year. Here are ways you can help continue Big Lake’s legacy:
Support Big Lake’s Winter Ministry
Yep, ministry at Big Lake doesn’t just happen in the summer. Donate now to help us buy things for our winter ministry! Many of our winter vehicles are in an end-of-life condition and require more maintenance than they are worth to keep working.
The ultimate goal is to implement a consistent upgrade/replacement plan for our equipment. This will ensure that BLYC has effective and operational equipment.
To learn more about the plan to update the equipment to support the winter ministry, please click here.

Support Abba’s Child
Help fund Big Lake’s Abba’s Child program, a one-week overnight camp featuring support-based counseling for kids who have had an immediate family member pass away. We can only offer this program free of charge to grieving children because of donors like you. To learn more about our Abba’s Child program, please click here.
Support Kids With Campership Funds
We want every child to have an opportunity to attend Big Lake Youth Camp and we want their experience to be life-changing. Through the BLYC Campership fund you can help us support kids coming to camp and the program that makes Big Lake so special. Each year we spend tens of thousands in scholarships and even more than that in providing creative, innovative and necessary improvements to camp. Your donation is vital to empowering life-changing experiences for campers.
