Camp Manitoumi is a ministry of the Illinois-Missouri Association of Regular Baptist Churches. As an extension of the ministry of the local church, we offer a Christ-centered program of activities and Bible studies using the camping setting. Our purpose is to evangelize the lost and to promote Christian maturity through the camping experience.
With the original purchase of some 80 acres in 1956 and additional acquisitions in the 1970ís and 1990ís, the 130 acres offer a multitude of outdoor activities. Primary to the ministry is the teaching of the Word and circling the centrally located chapel is a well planned and efficient layout of buildings and activities facilities that make for a summer camp thatís a counselorís and camperís delight. While some 1,000 youth are ministered to each summer, the number of folk on the grounds in a year is over 3,300.
By using pastors and lay-people from our churches we offer ministry opportunities to many adults each summer. Camp Manitoumi is uniquely a ministry of the people and churches of our IL-MO Fellowship. Because camping fees are kept below cost, the ministry is dependent upon the support of our churches and friends.
