Trout exists because of the support and contributions of thousands of people. From the tireless efforts of the camp’s founders in the 1940s, to the camp staff serving every summer, this is a meeting place with God that has been built by God’s people. We hope you’ll consider giving to Trout Lake Camps and joining the generations of others who have helped make this a meeting place with God.

So many people look back on their time at Trout Lake Camps and remember the friends they met and the life-changing spiritual decisions they made. We call it "a meeting place with God" because so many people did in fact meet God for the first time at Trout Lake.
That's why many families decide memorial gifts should be designated to Trout Lake Camps. It's a place that has made a spiritual impact in their family and they want to see that impact go on for generations—and stretch into eternity.
If you're considering a memorial gift our goal is to make it easy for you during that difficult time.
We want to serve families and make the memorial process as smooth as possible. We send receipts for tax-deductible donations directly to individual donors as well as provide donation records to families so they can thank individual donors at their convenience.
Throughout the year we have specific needs that can often be met through items being donated to Trout Lake Camps. These cash or non-cash gifts are tax deductible and ensure that the ministry at Trout Lake continues.
If you are interested in donating something on our 'wish list' (or if you have something not on the list you think Trout could use), please contact us.
Trout's Current Wish List:
- Vehicles under 100,000 miles (minivans preferred).
Trout Lake Camps is looking for mini vans and pickups with less than 100,000 miles to meet our maintenance and programming needs. Vehicles should be in good working order. Donating a vehicle is simple and all donations are tax deductible. If you have any questions please contact us.
In order to maintain and enhance the ministry at Trout, Project 365 is an effort to encourage 365 financial partnerships to give $1 per day into the work at camp. This extra financial capacity will ensure that much of the needed work around Trout is completed so that effective ministry will continue for years to come.
