Camp Wakonda is in Oxford, Wisconsin and 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.

This camp project will include building pole sheds for the primary children’s division, juniors and teens. Rebuilding the gift shop and medical building, repairing and painting cabins, remodeling bathrooms as well as landscaping.
