Each year Camp Kearney serves hundreds of children from the 61605 area. Founded over 50 years ago, Camp Kearney is the result of a vision given to long-time South Side Mission worker Margaret Kearney. Her vision to provide a Christ-centered camping experience for children of South Side Mission became a reality through the hard work and generosity of many people. Over the years Camp Kearney has expanded its ministry and now offers a free week-long summer camp experience to around 400 children from inner-city Peoria and Rural Central Illinois each summer. An additional 600 children visit Camp Kearney each summer through our day camp program. The camp is free to all who come.

Camp Kearney is needing to replace and update the signs that welcome and direct people to camp. We will need to raise $4,000 to complete the project.

South Side Mission is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization blessed by the financial support of many generous individuals, companies and foundations.

Donations in excess of the goal will be directed to other Camp Kearney services.
