COVID Update (June 2021)

The Camp Board wanted to give you a quick update on the Covid procedures for camp.  The Illinois governor recently loosened the Covid restrictions for people and businesses - which includes camps- throughout the state.  The camp board is pleased to announce that we will no longer require quarantine or Covid testing prior to attending camp.  There will be no enforced social distancing or mask wearing.  In short, the camp has returned to normal!  That being said, any camper, who desires, may  wear a mask. We  will still do daily temperature checks and surfaces will be sanitized before and after usage.  We want to assure you that we will place the safety of our campers and staff as our first priority.

We are excited to gather together and look forward to the  opening of Camp 2021!

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 is a Youth Retreat planned for this weekend; they will help with the raking. More information about that retreat and registration to come. Check back here and on Facebook for updates.
