CAMP CAREW

Camp Carew is a church camp operated by our presbytery.  The camp is located on Little Grassy Lake, near Giant City State Park and the Shawnee National Forest.  This setting provides an extraordinarily beautiful place to retreat from the world, gather with companions in the faith, and to allow God to nurture and renew us.  You can find out more about Camp Carew at www.campcarew.com

 

The purpose of Carew’s camping program is to allow children and youth to experience the Christian faith in fellowship with others as they also learn more about the faith through the teaching of the staff.

 

Over the years our church family has had many children and youth participate in the weeklong summer camp programs at Carew and we have had members of our church family work on Camp Carew’s summer staff.  We have also provided Carew with soccer goals and the church bell that rings to call people to meals. 

 

Camp Carew has been expanding in recent years to make it a year-round retreat center.  Still more needs to be done in this area, so currently people may not schedule personal retreats and conferences at the Camp.  Our church is currently exploring the possibility of building a structure at Camp Carew to help their expanding vision of what God can do there.

The community food bank is located in the Salvation Army Store.  There is a list of the items most needed in the shopping cart, but all food is accepted.
