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!"
