Regarding 2020 Camp Season

Dear Friends of Camp Carew,

 

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Camp Carew season has been cancelled.  We value the health and safety of our campers and our staff and will not do anything that medical experts believe would put them at risk.  Just as we cancel swim time when there is lightning and thunder, we cancel camp when there is a pandemic.  We will be offering a "Virtual Camp Carew" online beginning in June.  That virtual campground is currently under construction. Re-visit this Camp Crew webpage for updates.  Stay safe and remember that God loves you very much, and we like you, too.

 

The Camps and Conferences Board of the Presbytery of Southeastern Illinois.

Purpose

The Camp and Conferences Board seeks to provide settings in which individuals and groups can deepen their awareness of God, their compassion for one another, and their love for the natural world.

We strive to do this by building 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, the usual location for our camps and conferences, 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.

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.
