SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION

Things to Know

Please take a few moments to review the information on this page.  Whether this is your first time at ICYC or you’re an ICYC old-timer, you need to check this to see what’s new or has changed.

 

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 curriculum is 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. In those situations, we will make every attempt to contact parents/guardians prior to proceeding.
