Development Council

History of the Development Council

In 1985, the Development Council (DC) was created to help support the camp financially and assist in volunteer work.

In 1992, the DC requirements were revised to reflect a renewable 3-year commitment of regularly praying for Camp and financially giving a minimum of $500 annually. DC members were also to be advocates for LOMT in their local congregations as well as help raise money and awareness by inviting friends to the BBQ and annual Auction.
