New dleveltopment Park River Bible Camp invests in land By Tynan Nelson for The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Park River Bible Camp re- cently purchased a piece of land directly adjacent to the north side of the eastern end of camp as an investment for its Endowment Fund. The land was purchased as a physical investment for PRBC's Endowment Fund. According the Bible Camp's Development Director Mark Hensrud, the Bible Camp will be using the land while paying a type of rent back to the En- dowment Fund that is equal to what the current rate of return is for a certificate of deposit which will be somewhere be- tween 2 percent to 3 percent of the cost of the land per year. The only change from this pur- chase to the Camp's operating budget is a line for the rent of the land, which will be less than $3000. To those who are familiar with the layout of Park River Bible Camp, the land includes the the eastern loop of the Na- ture Trail and directly east of the High Ropes Course. The Bible Camp had an agreement with the previous owners to be able to use the land as part of the Nature Trail and the Camp's ministry. The immediate benefits for the Bible Camp from the land purchase are more control and security of the Bible Camp's border. According the Direc- tor of Ministries Scan Barn- heart, the land will allow the Bible Camp to provide even more security and safety for the youth that attend the camp, which is a great benefit. According to Barnheart, the Bible Camp has several possi- bilities for the land in the fu- ture. They include developing it and adding campsites, a place for a more rustic pro- gram, more High Ropes and Challenge Course elements, and new cabins. The staff and members of the Bible Camp are very ex- cited about the safety the land provides for their ministry and programs but also to the pub- lic. The Camp's Nature Trails and campgrounds are open to the public for camping, walk- ing, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing.
