Camp Meeting

Illinois Conference Family Camp Meeting at Camp Akita is scheduled for July 27–30, 2022. The theme will be “Following Jesus Faithfully.” Following Jesus faithfully means we obey the words of Jesus and accept His invitation when He says, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). Take advantage of this time to step away from the daily distractions and pressures and, instead, enjoy community, outdoor activities, and worship. You can plan to stay for the entirety of the meeting or for a portion. If you choose to stay overnight, lodging is available through Camp Akita cabins, nearby hotels, or by bringing your tent or RV.
