Bishops Appeal


Bishop Sally Dyck is pleased to announce this year’s Bishop’s Appeal will go toward the Northern Illinois Conference Outdoor & Retreat Ministries, which operates two camps and retreat centers in Dixon, Illinois and Williams Bay, Wisconsin. The money raised will help support two urban summer week-long programs and provide opportunities to children and youth who otherwise may not financially be able to attend camp. 

The goals include: 

  • Growing Chicago Southern Camp into Chicago Metro Camp (Chicago Southern and Chicago Northwestern Districts) serving 100 youth per week. 
  • Launching a new Rockford District Camp.
  • Developing two weekend "winter camps" for each of the above Summer Camp Districts that reinforce the summer time "mountain-top" experience with a mid-year rejuvenation. 
  • Revisiting and expanding earlier efforts with weekend Restorative Justice and Social Justice Retreats.
