make an eternal impact

Give the gift of camp.

Summer camp rates do not reflect the actual cost associated with running this year-round ministry. Historically, we've been able to keep registration fees low thanks to the generosity of individuals, churches and other organizations dedicated to the continuation of Camp Judson's ministry. 

There are many parents who would love for their kids to experience camp, but simply cannot afford it. There are families whose children are in desperate need of connection, rest and growth. Come alongside youth and families to provide for them to come to camp!


A partnership with purpose.

Camp Judson launched the Holy Cow Project nearly two decades ago to raise additional revenue for operating expenses. Project founders envisioned a sizeable herd that would provide camp with a steady stream of income. The annual sale of calves from the herd has generated more than $500,000 since 1992.

The project's success rests on a three-way partnership among camp, donors and ranchers. Churches, families and individuals donate money toward camp's purchase of new cows, and ranchers feed and care for the animals.

It costs approximately $1,000 to purchase one cow. Calves produced by these "Holy Cows" are sold every year, and all the proceeds benefit Camp Judson.

Today the herd is 100 strong.

If you or someone you know might be interested in purchasing or caring for a cow, please contact Camp Director Tracy Koskan at (605) 574-2314 or

campaign to build a new roger williams lodge

This campaign isn't merely fundraising for a new building. It's about reaching more kids with the good news of Jesus Christ.

In 1955, Camp Judson's chapel and meeting spaces were constructed and named in honor of Roger Williams, the founder of the Baptist movement in America. For nearly 70 years, Roger Williams Lodge has provided the backdrop to stories of faith, friendship and fun at Camp Judson. But today, this beloved building can no longer keep up with the size and scope of camps and retreats. That's why we're asking for your help to replace this aging facility with a new 20,600 square foot, two-story building.  We need to raise $4 million in capital campaign gifts to pay for construction.

Roger Williams Lodge has long served as a central gathering place for campers. The construction of a new building will not only revive its traditional role of bringing guests together under one roof, but also support and sustain Camp Judson's year-round ministry to youth, adults and families.

We invite you to look at the floorplans below for a better idea of what we're planning to build in place of the existing Roger Williams Lodge.
