BLACKHAWK BAPTIST CAMP
Blackhawk Baptist Camp consists of 160 beautiful wooded acres in Northern Illinois. We have served hundreds of children and youth since the camp was first established in 1959. As you can imagine, we are always working to make the camp a better place to reach out to tell others about Jesus Christ. Part of that mission is to have the proper equipment and facilities for the campers. The 2023-2024 ABWGRR special project will help support the camp mission by raising funds to purchase vital items for the camp. Our current freezer is 23 years old and our refrigerator is 40 years old. Both are too small to accommodate the amount of food for the number of campers.
