Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center is a 640-acre, year-round retreat and camping center in the heart of the Rock River Valley of Northwestern Illinois. We host congregations throughout Illinois and the St. Louis area for various camping programs. Your group can take part in a week full of activities lead by our qualified and friendly staff surrounded by our beautiful forest and prairie.

As a ministry of the ELCA congregations in Illinois; LOMC serves as the Church in outdoor settings, nurturing Christian faith and providing experiences connecting the Word of God with the World of God.
