About Win-Some Bible Camp

Win-Some Bible Camp was founded at the Freedom grounds by Avery Wetzig (an ASSU missionary) in 1947. ASSU and InFaith (formerly American Missionary Fellowship) held camp there under the directorship of Neal and Esther Alexander until 1984, and the camp was officially named Win-Some Bible Camp in the early 1970's. In 1985, Arvid and Bonnie Ellis took over as directors of the camp, and ran the camp together until Arvid went home to be with Jesus. Bonnie has continued to run the camp ever since, and many different missionaries and lay workers have helped out over the years. Brett Belleque and family have been involved with camp for several years. Bonnie retired in October of 2021, so this year, 2022, one of the lay workers will be directing the camp. Maxine Rozendaal will be camp director this year. She has co-directed camp with Bonnie since 2019. Many campers know her as "Max" as she has been involved with junior and primary camp since 1999 playing piano, leading the "bells", running the camp store and taking pictures.

"Camp is held during the summer months, and we desire campers to find Christ as Savior and encourage those who know Him in their walk with the Lord." 
~ Bonnie Ellis, Former Director 

The camp is located near Chariton, Iowa, and serves children and teens across the state.

Win-Some Bible Camp holds camps every summer. You can find this year's camp dates here.
