Why Go to Camp?

No matter your age, spending a week at camp is going to be a transformational time. Most importantly, it’s a fun escape from home quarantine with campfires, swimming, canoeing, fishing, exploring the woods, and more!

 

Beyond that, you will make friends with people your age from diverse communities all over the Chicago area. This opportunity to disconnect, slow down, and focus on nature will melt away stress and offer tools to care for your mental, spiritual, and physical well-being. Through conversation, play, and reflection, you just might find the Holy Spirit moving in your life. Come join us!

"Stop and Consider the Wondrous Works of God!" 

Job 37:14

Need a Scholarship?

At $300 per participant, the ABCMC summer camps are an incredible value! We want to make sure camp is accessible to all youth, no matter of circumstance. The region is offering scholarships to reduce the cost to $175 for the first youth and $50 for each youth in a family after that. (1 youth= $175, 2 youth= $175+$50= $225, 3 youth= $175+$50+$50= $275, etc.) To Apply:

               1. Send an email to ambern@abcmc.org and CC your local church pastor. Indicate which camp(s) and how many youth are                       requesting scholarships.

               2. Your Local Pastor confirms your church affiliation

               3. You will receive instructions on how to register for camp at the scholarship rate. 

               4. If additional support is needed, follow up with your local pastor to explore what options your congregation has                                     available.
