Little Grassy Camp

East Alton First United Methodist Church is part of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference and we send our campers to the Little Grassy Camp.  We offer many different camps for our campers to go to.  Most of our members would agree that our camping ministry is a favorite, and memories of Little Grassy Camp brings a smile to their face for years to come.

The Little Grassy Camp supports summer programs for spiritual formation in the Christian tradition, which are open to all.

If you are interested in participating in any way, please reach out to our office to get in touch with our Camping Ministry Director.

The Illinois Great Rivers Conference

Our camping program is an extension of the local church’s disciple-making process. Its mission is to provide transforming settings for re-creation, intensives for spiritual formation, and hospitality to all.

In fulfillment of the camping ministry’s mission, programming at East Bay Camp, Beulah Holiness Camp, and Little Grassy Camp makes the most of their locations on lakes, which, along with plentiful timber, invites guests to explore God’s creative genius in a leisurely manner, enjoy prolonged experiences of Christian community, forge relationships with God and others through worship, study, mealtimes, and play, and foster growing relationships with Jesus Christ.
