Camp Carew provides a setting in which the Christian faith can be experienced in fellowship with others.
We seek to help people deepen their awareness of God, each other, and the natural world by providing a camp program and a setting in which personal growth can take place. Our goal is that campers will strengthen their own sense of personal worth as well as their relationship to Jesus Christ and to others.
Camp Carew is a mission of the Presbytery of Southeastern Illinois of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). It is accredited by the American Camp Association. It is also a member of the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association.
Camp Carew provides children and young adults with Christian summer camps and can host retreats for persons of all ages throughout the year. Established in 1952, the camp is nestled in the beautiful woods of Little Grassy Lake inside the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. Camp Carew is built on sixty acres nine miles south of Carbondale, Illinois.
