Serving youth and churches since 1958, Menno Haven Camp & Retreat Center is located in the rolling hills of north-central Illinois. Here one may relax amidst the simplicity of the great outdoors, walk through the woods, sing around a campfire as the sun sets, paddle a canoe, listen to a chorus of frogs. Dedicated to providing a space for renewal and growth of body, spirit and relationships, we trust you will be blessed by your time here. We host a variety of church groups, schools, family reunions, businesses and special events in addition to operating our own year-round youth and adult programs. Menno Haven is a member of the Christian Camp & Conference Association and the Mennonite Camping Association, which is affiliated with Mennonite Church USA.
Associated with the Illinois Mennonite Conference, Menno Haven provides camping opportunities for our children, youth and adults. Our neighbors and our friends are welcome also. In addition, year-round facilities are available for congregations, family reunions, celebrations, conference and church-wide events.
Our official statement of purpose is to . . . “maintain and operate a Christian camping facility for the local churches of the Illinois Mennonite Conference, in order to more effectively serve the Church and to supplement her program of Christian nurture, worship, fellowship and evangelism.”
Our mission statement is . . . To invite all to experience God’s World and Christ’s Kingdom in a camp and retreat setting through opportunities for worship, fellowship, recreation, growth, and renewal.
