Camp Appanoose Introduction

Welcome

Camp Appanoose offers year around adventures for youth and adults which broaden horizons and encourage personal development socially, spiritually, intellectually and physically.

At the heart of the camp is the passionate mission to introduce the next generation to Jesus Christ. Summer camps as well as year around activities combine to offer a wide range of challenging opportunities.

Summer camps and Surf Club activities throughout the year utilize interactive Bible study materials prepared in house. Seminars in a Biblical understanding of life and society are offered in Leadership Camp and at various times throughout the year.

Camp facilities are located at the west end of eleven thousand acre Lake Rathbun in the scenic rolling hills of southern Iowa. Adjacent to the camp and in the immediate vicinity are over thirty-thousand acres of public recreational lands.

Nearly unlimited possibilities exist for avid sportsmen or women. The camp maintains its own herd of horses, a number of canoes and kayaks, a one hundred meter target sport range, activity center, conference room and food service.
