Camp Calvin Crest


Jon boomgaarden - Coordinator

Camp Calvin Crest is a 250 acre camp and retreat center near Fremont that is nestled in scenic fields, hills, woods and trails overlooking the Platte River. The camp provides a place for spiritual and personal growth year round for over 10,000 youth and adults every year. They host camps, conferences, retreats and programs for children, youth and families, and offer a wide variety of facilities, meeting services, delicious meals and staff support that make every event comfortable, unique, memorable and meaningful. The beautiful setting provides an environment that renews mind, body and soul.

The mission of the camp is providing quality Christian programs in a recreational environment, to equip people to walk with Jesus Christ, and to serve with a greater love for God and others.

The camp is in constant need to updating and repair and Presbyterian Church of the Cross Mission Committee plans regular work trips to camp Calvin Crest to assist. We typically complete a wide range of projects that help keep the camp going. In the past, we have hung drywall, painted rooms, repaired quilts, rewired and hung lighting, and most recently cut railroad ties and rebuilt a major retaining wall. Announcements are made in the fall and spring regarding when work trips are scheduled. If you are interested in learning more or in signing up for upcoming work trips, contact the program coordinator.
