  • Jacket/Parka (water resistant)
  • Synthetic or wool base layers for top & bottom – it’s better to be warm than cold, you can always shed layers. Synthetic materials help to wick moisture away from your skin. Once again, do not wear cotton as a base layer.

What should I do with my stuff?

Remember, you are responsible for your possessions while you are visiting our resort.  Refrain from bringing any extra items into the lodge if at all possible, and use our $0.50 coin lockers (located throughout the facilities) to secure the items you must bring with you.  Skis and snowboards are prohibited inside the lodge and should be secured on the outdoor racks with personal equipment locks or dropped off at our Free Ski/Board Check located on the lower deck outside the Rental Shop.

Chicago Mission Camp 2018

Everything you love about mission trips and summer camp combined into one –
Chicago Mission Camp!

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who CALLED you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

Who: Middle School and High School students

When: June 25 – 29, 2018

Where: Chicago (Loyola University)

Cost: $375

($50 Deposit due February 1. Final Balance Due June 1)

**Online Registration Coming Soon**

McCracken Co. churches come together to serve and support the mission of North American Mission Board (NAMB) church planters in Chicago.

Each day students will be immersed in new cultures, great worship, biblical-teaching by our camp pastor, and have a variety of opportunities to serve on the front-lines for the Gospel in Chicago.

Why Chicago? In a city where 8.7 million people speak more than 200 languages, you can find most anything; anything, that is, except a lot of evangelical churches. Southern Baptist Church planters in Chicago are trying to change that. In this video, see how you can help them bring the gospel to one of the most unchurched cities in North America.

Eat, Sleep & Meet

Loyola University

Image result for loyola lake shore campus

We’ll stay on the beautiful and prestigious Loyola University Lake Shore Campus, located just north of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. The Lake Shore Campus (LSC) is conveniently located off the CTA Red Line – Loyola “L” station at 1032 W Sheridan Rd.  We’ll use the CTA each day as we travel to our church planter partners, where we will serve to strengthen the mission of their church.

Lake Shore Campus is the largest of Loyola’s four campus’. It serves as main residential and undergraduate campus; home to more than 3,000 students, and set along the shores of Lake Michigan.

Recreation Options

      Image result for loyola hala hall

For recreation options, we’ll use Halas Hall, Loyola’s state of the art fitness center. It has multiple basketball courts, a swimming pool, and an indoor climbing wall. Just steps outside, you’ll find the quad, which can be used for ultimate frisbee tournaments and other awesome games! Don’t forget to pack a swimsuit because there is even a beach just next to campus.

Worship and Teaching

Camp Pastor – Lester Cruzat

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, sitting and indoor

Pastor Lester received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Education from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, upon which he taught high school science for 6 years. Afterwards, he attended Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis and received his Master of Divinity while serving as a campus minister at Washington University for 4.5 years. After serving as a college pastor, Lester went on to lead New Life Church of St. Louis for 3.5 years before receiving a miraculous call to go back home and minister in the city of Chicago where he received a heart and longing for the people of the city to know the name of Jesus.

Lester is married to the love of his life, Grace. They are parents to Hannah and awaiting the birth of their son in September. In his spare time, Lester is an avid sports fan and player with particular interests in fitness, basketball, baseball, and rock climbing.

Worship Band – Graveyards to Gardens

Image may contain: text

“For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.” – Isaiah 61:11

Graveyards to Gardens is back this year to lead us in Worship.  They are a local group that not only come together to make G2G, but they also each serve in the local church.  They are talented musicians who have a heart for worship but more importantly a heart for Christ.  They serve as great partners in ministry as we strive to reach Chicago with the Gospel.


How much does it cost?

$375 per person (all-inclusive)

Includes a t-shirt, all printed material, most meals, travel while in Chicago, lodging, and activities.

When is it?

June 25 – 29, 2017 (Mon-Fri)

What does a typical day look like?

Each day students will start with opening celebration. Opening celebration is filled with worship, high energy games, and a message from our camp pastor that goes along with the daily theme. It’s the best way to start the day. Then students will head off to serve.  Using the on-campus CTA, students will travel as a group to their mission-site. Mission-sites are run in cooperation with our NAMB church planters. Students will serve in a variety of ways; from backyard bible clubs, to light construction, to neighborhood mapping. Everything they do will serve to see the Gospel proclaimed and the mission of the church strengthened.  Lunch will be served on site. Returning back to campus in time for some recreation and dinner, students will end the day in evening worship. Worship is the culmination of the day, here we will sing praises to God and be challenged by His Word. Afterwards, students will come together as a youth group for church group devotions. Late night activities will include basketball tournaments,  ultimate frisbee on the quad, swimming, and climbing the indoor rock wall.  Go to bed, wake up, and do it again!

Is there a theme?

Yes! The theme this year is the Call.

God has called us out of the darkness and into a relationship with Him. With that call He is also calling us to pray, give, and go. The daily themes are:

Day 1 – the CALL to respond

Day 2 – the CALL to pray

Day 3 – the CALL to give

Day 4 – the CALL to go

These themes will be reinforced each morning at Morning Celebration and each night during Worship.  They will also be reflected in students daily devotionals.

What should we pack?

See the Chicago Mission Camp packing list

Chicago Mission Camp Packing List 2018

What about my middle-schooler?

If you are worried that your middle-schooler might be too young for a trip like this, think again. All of the mission sites are middle-schooler friendly.  We travel in groups and have increased adult supervision for our middle school students.  The campus is secure and closed to outside guests.

Is it safe?

While complete safety can never be guaranteed, we can assure you that students will only serve in neighborhoods deemed safe by the NAMB Send City Coordinator.  Loyola University has a dedicated campus security team and students will never be allowed to leave campus unsupervised by an adult.  The area that Loyola University is located is one of the wealthier and safest parts of Chicago. Chicago is a BIG city. The crime that you are accustom to hearing about is far from where we will be. Not convinced? Ask one of the many parents that joined us last year!


(click the image above to register online)


We need a minimum of 6 homes to house all of our groups. Host Homes will need to have enough space for 6-10 students to sleep on the floor or in beds for 2 nights. If you are interested in being a host home for your students small group please let Joe Yarbrough (270-709-5900 or Heather Rudy(270-554-1441 know ASAP.


Our theme this year is “ONE.”

 Have you ever thought about how one moment can define history? Or how one decision can change a life? We know that it only takes one person to start a movement. There is power in one. And the power of one resounds through Scripture, and by studying ONE, your students will travel through the Word to discover a powerful message that God has for them: There is ONE God. ONE way to Him. ONE family united under His banner. And ONE mission we’ve been entrusted with. The study we’re going to be working through is called ONE and it’s an awesome look at the essential truths of our faith.

Every student who attends will receive an Amplify Hoodie. When you sign up online make sure you put down your correct size. All sizes are “adult.” The cost of the hoodie is included in your $50 for the total cost of the weekend.
