Streator Baptist Camp

Streator Baptist Camp

"Be still before the Lord, all mankind ... Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him ... Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among all the nations. I will be exalted in all the earth."  Zechariah 2:13a, Psalm 37a, Psalm 46:10 

Streator Baptist Camp signStreator Baptist Camp and Retreat Center is located south of I-80 between I-39 and I-55, approximately eight miles north west of Streator. A winding creek rolls through the 120 acres from the main camp area, thru the woods, and spills into the Vermilion River that is the eastern camp border.

Christian Camp and Conference AssociationVolunteers
Volunteers have made many of the camp improvements a reality. Volunteers are needed in areas of carpentry, electrical work, kitchen help, flower gardening and miscellaneous maintenance. Volunteers may come singlely or as group, for a few hours or for a week. This can be a great church mission trip for adults, youth or the whole church. You can work hard and still mix it up with devotions, swimming, hiking, etc.

Free Stay
Free stay for pastors and their families when they come without their group.  Enjoy an inexpensive vacation - avoid burnout - spend time in prayer and Bible study.
