Bingle Bible Camp 2024

June 12 – 19

Since 1953, when Rev. Bert Bingle first committed our property to be a Youth Camp, the Bingle Board and Staff have been committed to providing youth and adults with a wholesome, fun, safe and spiritually renewing place to be during the summer and winter. LightShine has been helping them build and repair many of the camp structures. Here are photos of the work they did building a new Boathouse for the camp last year

This camp is 346 miles from our LightShine Alaska Missions Base. There are several other teams working in different parts of the state during this week. This team will be flying in and out of Fairbanks which is the northernmost “larger” city in America.  You will see some amazing things while you help this important Bible camp at Harding Lake south of Fairbanks. You might even stop and see Santa at North Pole! We plan to finish the interior of the boathouse by building and installing racks for boats and other equipment, install a “man door,” build access stairs and then demolish the old structure. This vital work will help this Bible camp provide more tools for their ministry to children and youth in Alaska.

What do I do next?

The cost of this trip is $1975. Our trip cost covers everything you need once you leave your home until you return. The total is determined by analyzing the cost of team assignments from previous years (things like your airline ticket, ground transportation, three meals a day, and many administrative fees that LightShine incurs).

Take Time To Register

If you want to be part of this team, please complete this Registration Form with a $40 registration fee. This fee covers the cost of a LightShine Alaska team shirt and locks you in as a team member. Once you are contacted by your team leader and your place is secured on this team, you can begin raising financial support by sending out support letters to your family and church friends. Simply have them send missionary support to us for your trip costs. Your team leader will help you develop your support letter and include two important dates for your supporters to note. The first financial deadline for half your support ($987.50) is due on May 3, 2024. This first deadline is very important to keep because it will enables us to purchase your airline tickets. Once airline tickets are purchased, there is no backing out of the team. The second deadline for your entire amount is May 17, 2024. Please note that these deadlines are strictly enforced. Not keeping them will cause us to ask you to step down from this team and consider another future team. Please take time to review our “Policies” page for more information.

Get Started!

The earlier you register the sooner you can start raising your financial support. We encourage you to get this out of the way early so you can enjoy the experience without any distractions. You will be so glad you did! A side benefit on this trip is seeing God’s beautiful creation including mountains, moose and maybe even the northern lights.

This will be a life changing experience for you and will give you a new perspective on helping those who are really in need!
