This is our 13th year, and we want to keep the cost down to $100/camper.

A $50 deposit will hold your spot at the camp. Each camp session is limited to the first 50 campers who sign up. An adult leader/driver is required for each 5 campers. Another $50 will be due by the end of June. Besides food and lodging for a week, this fee includes a camp T-shirt.

A Typical Day

A typical day includes meal preparations, personal devotion time, work at various ministry sites, rest and free time, club time that includes worship, games and reflection on the day’s activities.

While you are here, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Abraham Lincoln. We are 2 miles from New Salem where Lincoln lived during his young adult life. We are also 25 miles from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum!
