On May 28, 2017, Camp Okoboji dedicated the Discover Center, and opened a new door to its future.

Discover was introduced in 2015 as a project to replace several older buildings. Its purpose is twofold. First, it provides a new and excting activity center for campers and guests.  Second, to offer comfortable and flexible housing for summer staff and groups. 

The Discover Center offers resources for outdoor education, the creative arts, and learning opportunities in a modern state-of-the-art facility. It is hoped that a common question of guests coming to camp will be: What will I discover next?

Discover impacts both the camp environment and the Okoboji community as a wonderful place to gather, learn and grow with Jesus at the Lake.
