Thanks to donations made in memory of loved ones, we are well on our way to filling the first Memorial Plaque. Thank you to all who have participated in this program.

WBC’s vision is “To Connect the Word of God with the World of God” and to provide campers a chance to relax and escape from their routines, have fellowship with one another, and open their hearts and minds to God all in the great outdoors. The WBC grounds have a long and cherished history and have provided over 100 years of memories that have been written into the hearts and minds of those who have passed through the gates. WBC is looking to the future as we embark on fund raising efforts and programs in support of the WBC Capital and Improvement Fund. We ask you to join us in “authoring” these next chapters for WBC through your financial gifts.

One of the first fundraising programs we are excited to introduce is the WBC Memorial Plaque Program. In this program you will have the opportunity to memorialize an individual, family, organization, or Bible verse of your choosing.

  • Donation = $200 per plate

The Lake Ripley Institute Pledge Commitment

A ringing bell, the chapel, the smell of the campfire, fellowship with friends—new and old—these are a few of the wonderful memories many of us share at Willerup Bible Camp. For over 100 years, Willerup Bible Camp has been a cherished and special place and it remains so today. Those of you who reserve a special week, weekend or evenaday to travel to camp continue the time-honored traditions set by generations before.

We thank everyone for their prayer and support over the years, and as such would like to offer an update on the many improvements that have been made over the years through generous contributions and by those who have volunteered their talents.  A few significant improvements include:

  • New roof and gutters on the Dining Hall, Chapel, and New Dorm building

  • Fresh paint on the building and other restoration projects completed

  • The remodeling of the Olsen Cottage

  • New Porches on Staff Cottage, Olsen Cottage, and The Chapel

  • New lake front entrance

  • DNR restoration project on hill side

  • New floors and bathroom updates in the main level of the New Dorm

As you can see, your support is making a difference and is allowing new generations the opportunity to nurture their faith and enjoy the Willerup Bible Camp experience. Thankfully, many traditions and unique camp experiences have not changed over the decades.

As we are a non-profit organization, please consider making a financial contribution, so we may continue to offer this special place to all. Our hope is that you would prefer to donate continually during the year through an automatic transfer to the Lake Ripley Institute Improvement Fund.  All contributions would be tax deductible and a receipt would be provided annually.  

If you would like to make a donation, please visit our Contract page and submit the form for more information.

Remember, no amount is insignificant!  If you can give $5, $10, $20, or more monthly, we will be blessed. Again, we thank you for your prayers and continuing support of Willerup Bible Camp.

Willerup Bible Camp endures today, and with your prayers and financial support will continue to do so for generations to come.
