Meet Our Board
Bob Schwalm - Board Chairperson
Carol Bailey - Secretary
Myrna Zinkiew - Treasurer
Myrna has been involved in Madge Lake Bible Camp since the beginning. In 1954, her husband Walter's friend Jack Shakotko had a great vision to start a children's camp. They traveled together scouting a good place and came across a site which is now Madge Lake Bible Camp. Children's work has always been important to Myrna. From her own experience she knows God can convict a child at an early age and they can understand God's Word. There are many areas at camp that one can work in. Each area is very important. Little things for God can become big things in a persons life. Myrna has enjoyed all areas of the camp. First it was a Counselor, Nurse, Cook, and a couple times a speaker. She has loved them all.
"Reaching children for God should be our number one goal . I encourage everyone to spend a day at camp."

For quite a few years, Rick's church in Swan River has been renting the camp for their family camp. A few of their children were campers at MLBC as well. They could see the great things God was doing in their lives. About 10 years ago, Rick and his wife Debra started helping in the kitchen and with maintenance. Somewhere along the line he discovered he could also help in another way - by keeping the camp's bikes in good working order.
Rick started serving on the board around 5 years ago. What he finds most rewarding at MLBC is being a part of a team that is working together with Christ to build His kingdom. One of his fond memories that he has of camp, was when they were helping cook during Ranch camp about 10 years ago. Their youngest daughter Nicola was with us, who was seven at the time. She was too young to be a camper, but everyone included her and let her have some involvement in the fun. Heath Butler took Nicola under his wing, well, actually it was on his horse and taught her a lot about riding. This was very special to her and blessed them as parents. It didn't surprise them that after that she wanted to get a horse to keep in their back yard!
