We are looking forward to a wonderful time of fellowship with all of you at Stronghold Camp and Retreat Center in Oregon IL. We are excited to host the young people in Stronghold Castle. Come and be fed spiritually and physically. We have exciting plans and ideas for this location with a medieval setting.

There is no cost for attending this camp, just get yourself there. We will make arrangements to pick up those who are flying and transport them to and from the airport. The two closest international airports with multiple airlines are Chicago O'Hare (ORD) and Dane County Regional Airport (MSN) in Madison Wisconsin. If your location allows for Allegiant Air flights to Rockford (RFD) that is the closest local airport.

Camp will start on the afternoon of December 27th and will end with lunch on December 31st. Come prepared for possible winter conditions (only God knows how it will be) as well as bring clothing for sports activities and swimming at the local Recreation Center. We are also planning on doing a service project to serve Stronghold so bring your Servant's Heart.

Please register prior to December 18th so that we can get a final count to the retreat center for food preparations. The camp is geared towards teenagers and up. As always all young adults and college and career age young people are encouraged to join this wonderful group.

If you have further questions or need more specific information feel free to call Kevin Dale at 815-761-5584 or email You can also reach out to Kelvin Martin at or 519-301-4900.

This is going to be a wonderful time of fellowship and connection. We are excited to see all of you.
