What's Included


Camp MiVoden (ID) Project is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects.

Nestled in the mountains of Idaho and on the shore of beautiful Hayden Lake, Camp MiVoden is the summer home for hundreds of campers each year. Along with being a summer camp, MiVoden is also a retreat center that welcomes church teams, youth groups, and Pathfinder clubs. The large numbers of annual visitors have caused much wear and tear on the facilities, and repairs are needed. Volunteers will assist with several renovation projects including rebuilding some of the dock, repairs in the Equestrian Center, flooring and trim remodel in one of the cabins, cleaning up grounds as well as many other maintenance items.
