2024 Auxiliary Quilt Auction
The Camp Okoboji Auxiliary serves as a 'helpmate' to the Board of Directors - to Pray for, Promote, and Participate in God's ministry at Camp Okoboji. For decades, the Auxiliary has hosted a Quilt Auction & Craft Sale, which has contributed to the Camp Okoboji Auxiliary funding nearly $1,100,000 worth of projects and initiatives at Camp Okoboji. Please come and join us as we admire the beautiful quilts that were made and donated, and help support the Camp Okoboji Auxiliary in its mission at Camp Okoboji.

Date & Time
The 2024 Camp Okoboji Auxiliary Quilt Auction is June 1 starting at 12:30 P.M. in the Christian Life Center. 

Quilt Submissions
Unless special arrangements are made, quilts along with their Quilt Description Form should be received at the Camp Office by DATE TO BE DETERMINED to be photographed, processed, and posted. 

Quilt entries of all sizes are welcome. Buyers are gnerally looking for standard size bed quilts. Approximate quilt sizes are:
  • Twin (66" x 88")
  • Full (81" x 96")
  • Queen (90" x 102")
  • King (102" x 108")

Tied, machine-quilted, hand-quilted and hand stitched quilts are all welcomed. Quilts that are a specific bed size sell better than those that are a random size.
