Camp Ray Bird

Posted by iusbvision on April 18, 2006

The mission of Ray Bird Ministries, Inc. is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the “at-risk” children and teens of the Michiana area, nurture those believers through memorable camping experiences and prepare them for participation in local churches.   Ray Bird Ministries serves the economically disadvantaged children and teens of the greater South Bend area.

On December 8th 1914, Mr. Ray Bird backed by a few concerned citizens opened the doors of the City Rescue Mission to South Bend’s homeless and needy citizens.  As years passed the camp evolved to meet the needs of each passing generation of needy children.  The need continues and the program has continued to change and grow to meet today’s needs. Camp Ray Bird is looking for summer staff workers to be counselor, lifeguard and cooks. 

Volunteers are always appreciated for  kitchen work, grounds maintenance, new building projects and they are always looking for help to maintain and upgrade the grounds and facilities.  Work groups stay for free in exchange for the work.  This is an excellent way to build teamwork and teach service.  For more information or to fill out an application, go online to
