Disciples Crossing consists of two separate camps split by Highway 31: the “Main Camp” and “Creative Camp”. The Main Camp is the original property on the eastbound side of the road where the office is located and most events take place. The Creative Camp offers a more rustic camp experience with screened-in shelters, RV hookups, and more, on the westbound side of Highway 31. NERO: Border Lands primarily uses Creative Camp for our events, while Main Camp may be used for special events.
They offer guests programming that supports our organizational mission through faith-based and age-appropriate curriculum, as well as facility rentals for groups that wish to provide their own programming.
