Summer Camp in Decatur IL

Illinois’s Trail Life Summer Camp in the North Central Region is located in the heartland of Illinois in Decatur.  Illinois’s Trail Life Summer Camp is intended to help grow and mentor our Trailmen offering experiences rich in adventure, character and leadership, with fun, friendship, and learning.

Illinois’s Trail Life Summer Camp is just that – a chance to enjoy camp the way of the Trailmen.   It’s a great first time camp for Hawks1 who have a registered parent attending along side them, and for the  Mountain Lions 2 to climb the rocks and get more experience before they step up to be Navigators.     

For Navigators and Adventurers, we offer the opportunity to work on required trail badges, or pick from one of the electives offered each day.   

Every Trailman at camp is guaranteed an amazing and unique experience in a safe Trail Life environment and FUN atmosphere.


Illinois’s Trail Life Summer Camp offers an amazing range of camp activities for all our campers.  Scheduled times for branch or trail badges will take place Monday through Friday.  Evening will consist of games and worship as group activities.​

Hawks and Mountain Lions will be placed on a track for branch work, service, and learning experiences that will help prepare them for moving to the next level in Trail Life.   ​

Adventurers and Navigators will have the opportunity to choose from a select group of elective and required badges.    

Woodland Track Opportunities may include:  Rocketry, Climbing, Slingshots, Swimming, Outdoor Cooking, Our Flag, Founding Fathers, Basketball, Baseball, Horsemanship, Ropework, Wood Tools, Fireguard, Service, Leatherwork, Wood Tools, Fire Ranger, Shooting Sports, Archery and much more.
