Retreat & Camping Ministries
Rock River Retreat
Rock River Retreat is our 100 acre ministry center, just south of Webster City, IA. Rock River is intended to be a place for more quiet retreat activities. It is perfect for church leadership and spiritual formation retreats.
King's Kids Camp
The St. Louis area Free Churches run their own camping program each summer. This is a fantastic ministry that has now been going on successfully for over 15 years.
Camp Kidz Quest
On the other side of Missouri, our Kansas City area churches also run a camp each summer. Contact Rick Monson 816-694-6845 for information on this well-run and increasingly popular camp.
Hidden Acres Christian Center
Hidden Acres is located near Dayton, Iowa, about 75 minutes NW of Des Moines.
From a very modest start in 1979, it is now the largest camp in Iowa and one of the largest in the midwest. We like to think of it as the premier facility of its kind. With a campus that covers 640 acres, our Central District owned camp has modern and excellent facilities. They include a main lodge, a brand new inn, a new family life center with an expansive indoor pool, two full size basketball courts, and plenty of other recreation space. Outdoors there is a climbing wall, a lake for fishing and boating, and a toboggan run. Of course there is our well-known horse program, as well as hunting and hiking.
Check out Hidden Acres. It is one of the greatest district asset that your church can tap into.
