We’d like to invite you to partner with us in keeping Camp Elkanah’s landscape and facilities in top shape. Our buildings and grounds are the venue through which all our programs proclaim the gospel. Our goal is to make camp as presentable and beautiful a place as it can be, so that God will be most glorified. That means mowing lawns, painting buildings, cleaning windows, and a great many other things are acts of worship at Camp Elkanah. We would love to have you join us and serve in this way. To get started, you can fill out the volunteer contact form (click here) or call 541-963-5050.

3. Pray, pray, pray!!

“You know the value of prayer: it is precious beyond all price. Never, never neglect it.” – Sir Thomas Buxton

“Units of prayer combined, like drops of water, make and ocean which defies resistance.” – EM Bounds

At Elkanah, we wholeheartedly believe in the mighty power of prayer. To do work for God’s kingdom requires much prayer. Please consider joining Elkanah by committing to pray regularly for our staff, programs, and finances. You can keep up with current prayer requests by subscribing to our quarterly newsletter, the Elkanah Enquirer.
