Pack up your family and join us for a week of family camp at Cuivre River State Park near Troy, Missouri, from July 14-19, 2019. Everyone is welcome!

Cuivre River State Park is a beautiful park located 50 minutes north of St. Louis. We will camp at Derricotte Organized Group Camp.


This is your family vacation, so you are free to set your schedule in a way that works for your family. We encourage you to take part in the group activities because this is where community will happen.  Wednesday is a free day to do whatever you'd like. 

Morning Activities

Each morning from 9:30-10:30 AM there will be activities for children ages infant-12 years while the grownups take time to learn and connect. Families with children will take one morning of the week to hang out with the kids. 

Evening Session

Each evening from 7:30-8:30PM we will gather as a large group (all ages) for a time of worship, storytelling and fun! Rachel Henkle will lead music!

Chuckwagon Meals

The chuck wagon cook team will prepare delicious family friendly meals, leaving no food planning, shopping, or transporting food for your family!  

We will eat breakfast together every day and evening meals together each day except Wednesday. You will pack a sack lunch and snacks for each day after breakfast. 

Each family will take their turns helping the cook team prepare, serve, and clean up after one meal, or more if you like. This is often a highlight for families!  


A high value for this trip is to keep it affordable for young families. You and your kids will have no problem finding others to laugh and play with.
