Camp Emmaus
Mount Morris, IL

Leaf Raking - November 13th


Camp Emmaus relies on volunteers to help rake up the leaves in the fall. We start raking early (8:30am) on Saturday morning and generally are finished before noon.

This is a great opportunity to get some fresh air, hang out with friends, and give back to the camp.
(Rain date: 11/20)

Bring a rake if you have one. In order to keep the camp wildlife healthy, the leaves need to be raked up off the grounds. Camp will provide donuts and various beverages throughout leaf raking.

If you have any questions, please contact the camp manager at 815-734-4268.

There will not be a Youth Retreat over this this weekend due to COVID concerns. Youth are still encouraged to come out and help rake leave on Saturday morning.

Leaf Raking Youth Retreat - Cancelled

After careful consideration Michelle Bowman and Ralph Miner who are the co-hosts of the Leaf Raking Youth Retreat have decided to cancel this event for 2021 due to the recent uptick in COVID transmissions. While we were very excited to provide an chance to gather together as a community to continue friendships made at camp and making new connections across the district, we only wanted to gather if we could do it safely. Due to the time of year, most of the activities would need to be indoor with limited ability to be physically distant. At this point you can still come out Saturday Morning and help out with the leaf raking, but we will not be offering lodging or meals. We are so grateful that we were able to have camp this last summer and look forward to seeing everyone back at camp in 2022. Please take care of yourselves, stay safe, and carry camp memories with you in the days ahead.
