Camp Shalom Retreats


“There is something about taking time away in an atmosphere that stimulates people to listen, rest, talk, and refresh. This kind of experience can be therapeutic for tired bodies and frazzled nerves”
Larry Beatty, President of Jumonville Christian Camp

Charis HouseFacilities

Our facilities and beautiful scenery provides the perfect setting for fall, winter or spring getaways. Since we are conveniently located 45 minutes north of the Quad Cities and 30 minutes south of Dubuque. This makes our site ideal for day events, meetings, and weekend retreats. Come learn the secret and the peace of Camp Shalom.

Day Events are perfect for school groups. Camp Shalom provides wonderful hands-on environmental encounters for everyone! Junior and senior high groups enjoy combining team building and canoeing. Our staff is eager to work with you in shaping a great experience in the woods.

Meetings are more powerful in the woods. The distractions of the city are washed away in a time and place apart. Our convenient location makes Camp Shalom an ideal setting for day-long planning meetings or presentations.

Retreats help participants grow in amazing ways. Taking time away from a busy routine helps youth, adult and family groups build better relationships. Camp Shalom is the kind of place where discussion sessions, games, and outdoor experiences mix together to create new life in any group.

All reservations must be made through the Camp Shalom main office, call 563.323.2790.
