Ministry Bound is a ministry of Ironwood using the camping ministry to teach individuals desiring to go into camp work the
philosophy, principles, and purposes of camp through practical classes, hands-on ministry experience, and exposure to a dedicated camp staff.
The purpose is to train and equip godly camp workers for the glory of God.
This one or two-year program is designed for college graduates who desire to use and develop their skills for the purpose of
working in a camping ministry. Participants attend weekly meetings in which members of the Ironwood team will explain philosophy
and specific areas of camp in which they are involved. Also, they take a camp “field trip” once a semester to examine other camps and will join Ironwood team
members on an assortment of meetings and trips that they will take. Participants choose a specific concentration (track)
in which they will work and serve while learning more about camp. The program is designed to immerse a person in the camping ministry by allowing him to get
practical, hands-on training in a particular area while at the same time using the things he has already learned.
