Thank you for visiting our site and uncovering a true treasure of Eastern Iowa!

Our 74 acres encompass hiking trails, grassy playing fields and spacious campground with our main campus nestled quietly hilltop among abundant timber and rock bluffs near the scenic Maquoketa River.

We are open year round and host multiple opportunities for all ages including summer camp, spring and fall youth retreats, family camp and mission group experiences. Check out our site and contact us to set up your “Adventure of a Lifetime”!



To provide sacred space where Jesus Christ transforms lives, persons grow in Christian discipleship and leaders are developed to empower their local churches in the world; and to facilitate this mission through Christian love.
