2018 Camp Carew CalendarPurpose

Camp Carew is a mission of the Presbytery of Southeastern Illinois. It is accredited by the American Camp Association. It is also a member of the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association.

We seek to help people deepen their awareness of God, each other, and the natural world by providing a camp program and a setting in which personal growth can take place. Our goal is that campers will strengthen their own sense of personal worth as well as their relationship to Jesus Christ and to others.

Activities at Camp Carew are directed toward Christian community. Through group living in the small unit, campers and leaders are challenged to work, plan, play, study, sing, pray, and worship together.

Camp Carew provides children and young adults with Christian summer camps and can host retreats for persons of all ages throughout the year. Established in 1952, Carew occupies sixty acres along Little Grassy Lake inside the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. It is nine miles south of Carbondale, Illinois.
