About Us

Southern Illinois Christian Service Camp is a Christian campground supported by roughly 40 Independent Christian Churches/Churches of Christ in our region, from Mount Vernon down to the Paducah area. We are located on the edge of West Frankfort, Illinois and have been here since 1951. Our association was founded in the 1930's, and held camps near the Dixon Springs area until settling in our current location.


 Our main purpose is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our summer programs and offer a Christ-focused facility for use in Southern Illinois. Our summer programs begin in June and typically runs through the first week of August. We also look to support the area youth with a few events throughout the year. Additionally we offer our grounds for rental on a building by building basis. We are a Christian organization that centers around the person of Jesus Christ and the truth found in the Bible.


Our website includes all the information necessary for our summer programs including event dates, registration information, camp rules and forms. We offer information about our facilities and rentals for you to consider for your event. We also provide other ways to keep in contact with camp as well and current camp news. And finally, we offer information and ways that you can support the camp physically, financially, and by partnering in prayer with our ministry. Camp is supported primarily by the generous gifts and time of many volunteers. We hope you will visit us soon and become a part of the S.I.C.S.C. family!
