Camp Schedule 2011 

Located approximately 2 miles south from the intesection of Walnut Street (IL Rts 1 & 24) and Second Street (Woodland Rd), Prairie States Christian Camp is situated in a secluded, peaceful, wooded acreage bordered by Sugar Creek.

The camp is owned and operated by a co-op of area Christian Churches/Churches of Christ to provide a place for Christian training, fun, and fellowship.  Camp sessions are age specific with Day Camps for the youngest, Camp Weeks for Elementary through High School ages, and Family Camp Weekends when families can either use the dorm facilities or bring their own campers or tents.  Campers from all the churches in the co-op, as well as from outside our brotherhood have a chance to meet and build friendships that will last for years.

Each day of camp is planned with focus on developing an awareness of Biblical teachings, Christian values, teamwork, and having fun.  Missionaries from various Missions are featured every week and share with the campers the cultures and lifestyles of the people they work among.  Activities include ballgames, swimming, mini-golf, use of various on site playground equipment.  The Camp Cooks prepare great meals, and there are Canteen Periods for purchase of treats.  Each day climaxes with Evening Chapel followed by the Evening Fireside Devotions just before Lights Out.
