Camp Akita


Our Story

Camp Akita is a Youth Camp & Christian Retreat Center along the Spoon River in Central Illinois. Owned and operated by the Illinois Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. It is one of Illinois Conference’s greatest resources for reaching children, youth and adults. In addition to hosting an abundance of youth and Pathfinder events during the year, it is also home to the summer youth-camp program. 

Camp Akita is also a place for church groups, conference groups, youth teams, and families to come for a retreat.  Nearly every weekend people come to be refreshed by great fellowship and the camp’s natural beauty.  Many fun activities are also available including waterfront activities, a climbing wall, a high-ropes course, and mountain bikes.

Our hope is that the type of opportunities for training, ministry, and service for our young people in Illinois will abound so that they will be part of that “army of youth rightly trained”  to help finish the work God has given us as a church to accomplish.
