Camping and Retreat Ministries   

Our Mission

EB WorshipThe Illinois Great Rivers Conference camping program is an extension of the local church’s disciple-making process. Its mission is to provide transforming:

  • settings for re-creation
  • intensives for spiritual formation
  • hospitality to all.

In fulfillment of the camping ministry's mission, programming at both East Bay Camp and Little Grassy Camp makes the most of their locations on lakes, which, along with plentiful timber, invites guests to explore God's creative genius in a leisurely manner, enjoy prolonged experiences of Christian community, forge relationships with God and others through worship, study, mealtimes, and play, and foster growing relationships with Jesus Christ. 

The Illinois Great Rivers Conference camping program extends, also, to Beulah Holiness Camp in Eldorado, IL, through a lease agreement with the Beulah Holiness Camp Association.
