Camp Ewalu, located in Northeast Iowa near Strawberry Point, has a variety of camping opportunities for youth and adults each summer.  The camp is alive with enthusiastic counselors and staff, exciting recreational opportunities, and a faith-based environment that is centered on love, acceptance, and forgiveness.  A week at camp may include canoeing, hiking, evening campfires, archery, swimming in the pool, the ropes challenge course, outdoor cooking, and daily Bible studies.  

Camp Ewalu is made up of dense forests, open prairies, and majestic rock outcroppings that overlook the Maquoketa River which winds through camp on its way south to Backbone State Park.  Campers of all ages come to Ewalu where they may find themselves living in a tee-pee village, sleeping in a covered wagon, houseboating on the Mississippi River, rock climbing in Wisconsin, or even backpacking in the Rocky Mountains. 

"Camp is a place where kids can experience Christian community at it’s best." says Jesse Klosterboer, Ewalu Program Director, "It’s a caring environment, where kids grow in faith while having a great time supporting one another!"

Camp Ewalu offers week-long and half-week programs for elementary aged youth.  Junior and senior high programs include programs such as pioneer life, night camp, backpacking, canoe trips, rock climbing, houseboating, high school leadership training,and urban immersion trips to Chicago and Milwaukee.  A new program called "M.A.D. Camp" gives campers the opportunity to enjoy a week at camp developing skills in music, art and drama.  Electives during the week include guitar, photography, clay sculpture, and drama.

The camp also offers year-round retreat facilities for churches and community groups.  Fall, winter and spring dates are open to schools for environmental education programs and the use of Ewalu’s High Ropes Challenge Course.
