Deans Kenny Paoli, Dina Frye, Abby Frye, & Ryan Gahm

Youth in 9th Grade-Graduated Last Spring

Our BOND retreat is an escape for our senior high kids in the middle of their first semester. Our campers our always saying that they wish camp was longer. This gives us an opportunity to touch base, encourage one another, and bond (get it?) with friends we made over the summer.





Visiting us for the first time? No fear! Our friendly deans and staff will show you around, help you carry your luggage to your cabins, introduce you to your counselors and co-campers, and help you make sure your child's registration is complete including any necessary medication received. We're happy to help answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to meet you!


All of our deans are DCFS Certified Mandated Reporters and closely monitor each camper and volunteer. Our property is fenced in and monitored by our camp caretakers. For the safety of our campers, all campers are expected to abide by the signed Code of Conduct. Violation could result in the camper being removed from camp. This will be done are the parent’s expense, and there will be no refund of the camping fees. Willful destruction of camp property will be charged to the camper’s parents. In case of sickness or injury that would require emergency medical attention, the camper’s family health insurance is named as the primary insurance. Your camper's safety is always front of mind.


Your kids will experience an age-appropriate chapels that will teach them about God and His love for them. The teaching is interactive and utilizes multiple approaches for different learning styles. The goal at Rock River Bible Camp is for kids to understand who Jesus is and how He can make a difference in their lives. They will also have a lot of fun!
