Camp Summit’s peaceful setting makes it the perfect location for your next church leadership weekend, scrapbooking retreat or family reunion.
Located four miles south of New Windsor, IL, the Christian youth camp sits on 65 peaceful acres and features a 4-acre lake for fishing and boating, hiking trails, wilderness camping and many outdoor activities including a low ropes challenge course.
The air-conditioned lodge has a wrap around deck and is handicap accessible. The lodge sleeps 70, but we are licensed for 110. The dining room features a full commercial kitchen, and there is a large meeting space with a fireplace.
Scheduling your next retreat at Camp Summit also helps support the mission of YouthHope to provide hope to low income kids, teens and their families. Urban kids have an alarming deficit of experiences outside their neighborhoods and housing complexes. Cookouts, retreats or a whole week at Camp Summit are vital to their development and pursuit of God. These children are forever changed by the experiences camp offers them.
The children who attend Camp Summit, do so at no cost to them thanks to the support of donors and the income from your rental.
