Village Creek Bible Camp and Retreat Center is located on over two hundred acres of beautiful Iowan Land. The camp hosts several retreats throughout the fall and spring, as well as a variety of summer camps from June through September. The focus of Village Creek Bible Camp has always been to provide a place away from the distractions of every day life, where people can hear the word of God and encounter Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit.
The spiritual aspect of Village Creek Bible Camp is enough to keep people coming year after year, including the staff themselves! Many of the summer staff has stated that working at Village Creek Bible Camp has changed their life and perspective.
The spiritual aspect, however, is only one of the great reasons to make a visit to Village Creek Bible Camp. Another great reason to visit is because of all the wonderful fun and activities offered to camp. Summer campers have the opportunity to swim, fish, canoe, ride horses, hike, climb an exciting ropes course, camp out, make crafts, and jump on the bungee trampoline, play basketball, volleyball, floor hockey, and many other exciting games. The full time staff makes it a goal for each camp visitor to have quality time growing in Jesus, as well as fun filled activities to refresh and rejuvenate.
There are also skits, group games, and a beautiful environment where God’s glorious creation shouts of His praises.
The summer camps fill up fast, and there are early bird specials for those who are sure they want a spot. Summer camps include family camps, junior camps (ages 8-11), youth camps (ages 12-14), and senior high camps (ages 15-18). There are also specialty camps for home schooled children, horsemanship courses, and special family retreats throughout the summer and year.
The best reason to visit Village Creek Bible Camp is to learn and grow in Jesus. He is the reason Village Creek has been so successful and so many visitors attribute their pleasant stay to Him. Your relationship with Christ may be restored, or you may even start a relationship with Christ while you are there!
The next best reason to visit Village Creek Bible Camp is because of the quality people and friendships you will acquire. If you are someone who appreciates quality friendships and fellowship, you are sure to find it at Village Creek Bible Camp. Many life long friendships have been formed at this place.
Another great reason to visit Village Creek Bible Camp is to get away from the routine. You will find quiet serenity, or fun filled activities (your choice) and you will have time away from the highly stressful or mundane life you may find yourself in. You will also be able to return to that life rejuvenated and feeling fresh and ready to embrace whatever comes next.
