2021 Beulah Youth Institute BC233$275.008 - 13 6/20/2021 - 6/26/2021 Register  

We want to invite you to join us at Beulah Youth Institute for a week of Christian growth and community.  Each day will be filled with worship, individual and small group Bible study, food, fellowship, and making memories!

You will have the opportunity to choose between six to eight seminars daily as well as a wide variety of recreational options.  Our seminars cover a wide range of topics and although most are co-ed, there are options for gender-specific topics offered on certain days.  Seminars are an opportunity for you to learn more and grow deeper in an area of your choice.  Our recreation options include, but are not limited to, team sports, tournaments, individual games such as cornhole, board games, card games, and crafts.  After recreation and/or evening activity there will be some down time, so you are able to get cleaned up for our traditional evening worship.  Dress clothes are NOT required for evening worship; however, traditionally our students enjoy getting a little dressed up for the evening services.

While many churches attend as a youth group bringing their own sponsors and staying in church-owned cabins, we also offer dorms and dorm sponsors to accommodate campers coming without their youth group or sponsors.  So please do not hesitate to join us!

If you are interested in Beulah Youth Institute but still have questions before making your final decision to register, please e-mail Lauren Cole at youthmarionagate@gmail.com.  I would be happy to answer any and all questions to make your 2021 camping season the best it can be!

We will also have special evening activities and devotions each night of camp.  Come prepared to make new friends and renew old friendships from previous years.  Join us for the most exciting week of your summer!

2021 Beulah: The Beginning BC213$105.002 - 4 7/2/2021 - 7/3/2021 Register  

Join us this year at Beulah the Beginning Camp for “MIC DROP 2021”.  We worship God in church with songs of praise, but that is just one part of worship! Worship can happen anywhere, at any time, in good times and bad times, with our whole life, and even when others don’t.  Regardless of the circumstances of our lives, we are called to worship God!  Worship can happen when we sing, when we pray, when we dance, when we show love to others! 
 
At Mic Drop 2021, our kids will experience and learn that every day we can praise God in some way.  We invite your kids to join us at camp for hands-on Bible stories, energetic games, creative crafts, movie night in the Tabernacle, wild & wacky games, and meaningful worship. We’re going to have a blast this year as we learn to be bold, strong, spirited, joyfully, sincere, and true in our worship.  We hope your kids can join us at Beulah the Beginning Camp for Mic Drop 2021!

2021 Beulah Junior High Alive BC243$180.006 - 8 7/13/2021 - 7/17/2021 Register  

Our theme this year is “Songs in the Key of Life.” We will be diving deep into new and familiar songs we’ve heard on the radio or in church, and finding how the lyrics might connect to Scripture. Our verse for the week is Psalm 46:10 which encourages us to take the time to be with God and to listen to what He may be speaking to us, especially through song! Get your creative minds ready and we can learn together! We are looking forward to a week full of worship led by Harvest Ministry Team, as well as our awesome speakers and seminar leaders. Join us for a time of catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, and growing in our relationship with God! Come and make memories with us as we work in missions, create art, play games, and so much more! This will be a week that you won’t want to miss! Join us!

2021 Catch the Spirit EB394$425.007 - 12 6/13/2021 - 6/18/2021 Register  

For nearly 40 years, CTS has been making memories, growing faith, and building lasting friendships (along with cardboard boats) at East Bay Camp. This summer promises the same and much more. This weeklong camp has all the usual stuff you’ve come to count on: swimming, boating, campfires and songs, hikes, crafts, and of course lots of time to hang out with friends - old and new! But let’s just say at CTS we tend to do things “a little differently.” The staff of Catch the Spirit are already preparing for your arrival, and we can’t wait to see you this summer!

2021 JR Program Team EB320$630.0011 - 12 6/13/2021 - 6/18/2021 Register  

Link to apply is: https://forms.gle/eSF9zvz4b3Dg5a1G6

Formerly called RISE Camp, this program has evolved quite a bit from its origins. Being a part of the Jr Program Team means that you are a critical part of our summer team and our success as a ministry. JPT members will be facilitating discussions, activities, and crafts for our Day Camp program during the day and reflecting as a team at night for personal faith development. Don’t worry though, JPT members still have lots of fun. Our goal is to give our Jr Program Team an opportunity to try, discover, shine, and grow.

The dates listed are for JPT week - the week of the summer we pour into our Jr Program Team’s faith development, leadership development, and prepare them for their responsibility. It is expected that each JPT member return to camp at least one other week of the summer, but that week is up to you as a family. There is no cost for this additional week (or weeks). Volunteer hours are available for JPT members as needed.

The first step in this program is to apply (not register). Not all applicants will be selected for this program, however, we encourage all interested to apply - you may be surprised where God takes you when you step out in faith. After application, there is a brief interviewing process, followed by the registration of our top 10 candidates. Yes - only 10 applicants will make up the Jr Program Team.

Four spots are available for 2021. Space is competitive - apply early.

Most importantly, campers will develop a sense of God’s presence in our natural world! But don’t worry, campers will still get to go swimming and spend a bit of time in the A/C. Join us for an adventure unlike any other!

An adult must accompany the youth.

Campers young and old will learn about prayer and community while having a great time playing, swimming, and singing here at camp. The perfect family get-away. This year’s curriculum is called “This is Our Prayer.” It’s an awesome curriculum where we will learn about why we pray, all the different ways that we can pray, and what prayer means in our relationships with God. 

This weekend is geared towards our youngest campers; however, campers of all ages are welcome. Portions of this weekend are more structured than others to respect the needs of all kinds of families. Much like a cruise ship, there will be stations for different kinds of activities, different age groups, and different interests available throughout the weekend. These stations and flexibility allow your family to tailor this experience just for you!

Our June Family Adventurers will be staying in our new cabins in Aldersgate. Each family unit will get their own sleeping area and bathroom. All beds in this area are twin sized. Aldersgate is known for being across from the pool. The GPS address is 24306 Ron Smith Memorial Hwy, Hudson, IL 61748. If this location changes, staff will be outside to redirect you.

Price: $155.00 per person - early bird discount available if registration and full camp payment (less 25.00 per person) by April 15.
