Reaching The Native American People Through Relationship Evangelism

Dakota Sonshine was founded as a non-profit organization in 2001 and is dedicated to reaching out to the Native American people by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through relationship evangelism and through our annual summer camp program. We host missions projects for churches and host groups for local missions outreach annually.

3.       Camp sponsorships:  We offer camp at a minimal cost so that everyone has a chance to attend regardless of financial means.  We raise funds throughout the year for our 4 day/3 night camps that run from 5 to 6 weeks each summer.  The cost of camp is approximately $50 per camper.  Our goal each year is to provide camp for 60 campers per week plus 12 camp staff at a cost of $3000 per week.  If you or your church would like to sponsor a week of camp please contact us.  If you would like to sponsor a portion of camp you may; 1 day of camp is $750 or sponsoring half of a camp is $1500.  Sponsorships are due in May so that we can prepare for camp beginning in June/July.  Camp sponsorships help cover many aspects of camp including food, maintenance, first aid supplies, animal care, grounds keeping, utilities and event upkeep.  Sponsorships are important for us to keep camp going during the summer months.

4.       Summer mission teams:  Each summer we have construction needs and outreach needs.  Teams from around the US come to sponsor and construct new buildings or camp elements or just to help us maintain the property.  Teams also help us hand out camp materials and sign children up for summer camp.  If you’re group is interested in joining us for a week please contact us to find out how you can become involved.  Cost for staying on the Dakota Sonshine property with meals provided is $150 per person.  This covers the cost of meals plus utilities during your stay.
