Description: Match your interests and gifts to the major that best suits you through Prairie’s Bachelor of Arts in Ministry (BAM) designed to build your confidence to minister in any environment; providing you with an in-depth knowledge of the Bible and practical leadership skills to do ministy while equipping others for ministry.

The BAM Camp Ministry program combines experiential and classroom instruction. Much of the program is in an actual camp setting allowing students to learn leadership, administration, discipling, Bible teaching, and other skills within a reality experience. Students learn to use the camp as a tool for ministry (both technical/hard skills and soft/relational/interpersonal/communication/ leadership/ group skills necessary to lead others). Strong emphasis is placed on developing a philosophy of Christian camp ministry so you can run your own camp. The third or fourth year is spent at Camp Forest Springs (Wisconsin, USA), allowing students to gain extended hands-on experience in camp ministry while earning academic credit to fulfill program requirements.
