July 7-13, 2024
Theme for This Year (2023)
"The Crowd in the Cloud"
Our theme verses are Hebrews 12:1-2,
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God."
Our REGISTRATION forms from 2023 are here as an example, although some changes may be made for 2024.
Junior and Senior campers sleep in different dorms, are taught different lessons, but eat meals and swim (gender segregated) together. Our swim time in the lake is supervised by at least one trained lifeguard and counselors.
Camp Emmanuel is an association that leases a facility; we do not own our own campground. Since 2014, we have met at Yellow Creek Lake Camp in Claypool, Indiana.

Yellow Creek Lake Camp is a large, full-service camp with beach, zip lines, archery range, game room, and short hiking trail. We lease this camp for one week annually to conduct Camp Emmanuel. Camp Emmanuel is a separate organization.
Campers must be from participating churches or guests of those churches (they require a Camp Pastor's signature).
Please do not register for Camp Emmanuel through Yellow Creek Lake Camp. You must register using the Camp Emmanuel forms that will be provided on this site when available. Forms will also be available through participating churches.
Parents, please read the entire registration form before you sign and then please make sure your campers are bringing what they need! Click here!
The Camp Emmanuel Association
Welcome to our Camp Emmanuel website.
We are a Bible camp that leases a facility in northern Indiana, not far from Warsaw, Rochester, and Peru. Click HERE for map.
Camp Emmanuel Is...
1.) A great spiritual, social, recreational, and fun experience with new and old friends in a tried and tested environment.
We've been continuously operating since 1946, and we have a lot to offer youth between ages 9 through high school. We are firmly committed to the truth of God's Word. For many youth, Camp Emmanuel is the highlight of their entire year!
2.) The result of Bible-oriented local churches working together for the common growth of Christian youth and sharing the Gospel with those who have not yet come to faith in Jesus Christ.
3.) A faith-based ministry. Camp Emmanuel is free to qualified campers and supported by participating churches and individual contributions.To qualify, campers must meet a church attendance requirement, memorize the Romans Road verses from the Bible, and acquire the signature of a camp -involved pastor by the deadline date. Campers may also be guests of supporting churches. See registration form for details.
Camp Emmanuel is not a location but a Christian organization. In recent years, our Bible Camp leases Yellow Creek Lake Camp in Claypool, Indiana for one week. Although the campground is owned by the Church of God denomination, the Camp Emmanuel Association is made up on independent/non-denominational churches. We appreciate their willingness to lease out the camp for this week.
To find out more about the campground we will be leasing, follow this Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/yclministries . You cannot register for Camp Emmanuel through them! HERE is Camp Emmanuel's registration form!
We encourage members of our Camp Emmanuel family to volunteer to help maintain and upgrade the Yellow Creek Lake Camp.
