JULY 13-21, 2019

Family Camp is a time designed for people from all walks of life, demographics, and generations to join together for a time of worship, fellowship, community, and fun. Whether you come and stay on the grounds or drive in for a service, it is my prayer that you feel a part of something bigger than yourself and encounter Christ in a new way.

  • CABIN owners

    Enjoy this opportunity to step away from the busyness of everyday life and take time to connect with God. Join in for the Bible Study, Family Life sessions, evening gatherings at the Tabernacle, and a whole host of family fun activities!


    (note: cabins are full for 2019)

    We get many requests to rent a cabin for Family Camp and there is nothing we would like more than to accommodate everyone! 

    Prairie Camp owns thirteen cabins and we use these to house our many volunteer workers. Privately owned cabins are used by the owners during Family Camp. However, if someone is not using their cabin, they can make it available for others who would like to stay.
