Family Camp

Summer 2022

Join us for an awesome week of Family Camp July 3-6, 2022! Join us for a week of setting aside time to grow as a family in your journey with Christ. Be sure to register early, as we expect both of our Family Camps to fill up this summer. Here's what you can expect. Each morning families will gather in the chapel for singing, skits, and sharing of God’s Word. Following chapel time, all the children will be divided according to age groups and will spend the morning with our amazing cabin leaders and experience a time of learning more about Jesus and experience some really fun activities! While the kids are hanging out with our staff, the adults will be hearing from our wonderful guest speakers, Scott and Wendy Rains.


Many activities will be offered during Free Time each afternoon. Families will enjoy swimming and relaxing poolside at our aquatics center, horseback riding, Rec Hall fun—carpetball, foosball, Camp Store, Art Fun, and Family Bonding time! If the water level is appropriate, families may canoe the river from Riverside to Story City. Otherwise families can always canoe at our lagoon! Evenings will be filled with many great family activities, including campfires and the Mime. Families will also experience Riverside’s FAMOUS parade and barbecue dinner. We hope to see you there!

PAYMENT PLANS: We are sensitive to the reality that many of our families have experienced a year of unknowns. If setting up a payment plan is helpful to your family budget, go ahead and begin the registration process online. When it is time for you to submit payment, please call our office and we'll work with you to set up a plan that works well for your family. 

2022 Pricing

Note that there are two different pricing options for lodging. All cabins have air conditioning. We also offer RV and tent camping, for those who wish to bring their camper or tents with them! Families may choose to share a cabin, but must be noted on registration form. The cost of the housing would then be split between the two families. The program fee is per family, so each family would still have to pay for the program fee. Feel free to call the office at 515-733-5271, if you have any questions at all.
