>>> Our Purpose 

Our Overnight Camps provide a unique experience unlike any other.  There is nothing quite like being on an “island”, away from the busy outside world, where kids build relationships with new and old friends and discover new things about their faith and themselves.  In the words of a very wise camper, “God is everywhere, but at camp, I just listen better”.

Camp Heartland is where relationships are made and we believe God changes lives through them. You’ll have a chance to hang out with new people, connect with old friends, and grow stronger in your relationship with Jesus Christ. Come spend a week at one of the best camps Missouri has to offer!

>>> Our Staff 

We search for servant-hearted and dedicated followers of Jesus Christ just for your child.  Our college staff are exceptional and dedicated to serving the Lord and our campers.  They are trained to bond their small group of campers in the time that they’re here, help them understand what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and model God’s love by unceasingly loving and caring for our campers.

>>> Activities 

Our overnight program is packed with activities and experiences you can’t get anywhere else.   Campers could be “walking on water” with our water walkerz in the pool, singing songs at the tops of their lungs in the dining hall, riding horses through our beautiful trails or going “GA GA” for Ga Ga Ball. No matter what they are doing, they are being loved and reminded of the real and tangible presence of God in their life.


>>> A Typical Day

Each morning campers will study the Bible with their counselor and family group, have opportunities throughout the day to share their faith with their peers and counselors and participate in our evening “vespers” or worship each night, enhancing what they have studied and helping them to further understand who they are as a child of God.
