Indian Creek Youth Camp is a “Christian” camp operated and staffed by members of the church of Christ. Campers will receive religious instruction during each session.  Our curricula are taken directly from the Bible, not from any “denominational” creed or doctrine.  Campers are ONLY presented information and are not “pressured” by teachers, counselors, or staff to make religious decisions or commitments.

Check-in and Drop off:  2pm on Sunday.  PLEASE DO NOT GO DIRECTLY TO THE CABIN AREAS!!!

ALL campers must be checked for head lice BEFORE going to the cabin area.

Pick up: Friday between 10 and 12 noon.  Early check outs must be coordinated with the week’s director or the camp administrator.

Please drive with extreme caution during “check-in” and “pick up”.   There will be many people walking around.  Many of them will be excited children who aren’t watching for moving automobiles.   Parking is allowed in the cabin areas only during “check-in” and “pick up” times.

What to expect:

Most camp days begin around 7:30 a.m. and end about 10 p.m. or later.   There will be 3 well balanced meals and 2 canteen times (drinks at both times; one will also include a snack) are provided each day.  Our camp store will also be open periodically during the day where other snacks and supplies can be purchased.  Purchases can be made in the camp store (Trading Post) with cash, check, or credit/debit cards.  If you think your child may have trouble keeping up with cash during the week, you should make arrangements with their counselors to have them keep their money safe.  You might also consider purchasing a VISA gift card and write their name on the card with a permanent marker. Each day will be filled with activities, sports, Bible study, singing, swimming, and more.
