Please note that Camp Illiana is not a campground for RVs or tent camping, but offers full accommodations for retreat/reunion/etc. rentals.

Rental Procedure

  1. Determine your facility needs – i.e. which buildings/lodges you will need.
  2. Check availability of our facility by calling our office at (812)254-3322.
  3. Determine your specific needs – i.e. meals, media, sound, set-up, adventure element rental (seasonal), pools (seasonal).

Two options are available for your convenience:
You may take advantage of the camp’s food service for a per person per meal charge. This charge varies according to meal. Food service is not available on Sundays. When more than one group is using food service it will be necessary to cooperate on the meal times.
You may bring your own food and cooks and provide the meals yourself in your lodge. You may also be able to rent the Dining Hall if you have a large group, depending on availability. The camp will provide all table service, pots, pans, utensils, ice, kitchen towels and dish soap, etc. If cooking for your group, you must bring anything consumable such as paper products, coffee, foil, and condiments. 
You must provide the camp with the number of people who will be attending 5 days prior to your retreat. If we are providing food service for you, this is the minimum number you will be charged for even if fewer attend. If a greater number attend you will be charged for the actual number. Please keep in mind that too many more people may cause us to run short on food.
The camp staff will gladly set up your lodge prior to your arrival according to your preference with tables, chairs, sound equipment etc.
You are responsible for providing your own sheets, pillow, blanket, towels, and toiletries. Lodge bedrooms have one full bed and several twin beds each. Hand soap, paper towels, and bathroom tissue are provided in the lodge restrooms.
Please go directly to the lodge you have reserved. One of the camp staff will greet you and give you any assistance you may need.
The camp has available for your use several kinds of program equipment. You may use our keyboard, video projectors, screens, coffee makers, and sound systems. We do request that all equipment be operated by or supervised by adults.
Choose from the High Ropes Course, Zip Line, Giant Swing, Rock Climbing Wall, and Challenge Course. Each is available upon request for $40.00 per hour per element, with a minimum of $40.00. Arrangements must be made at the time you sign your contract. Due to insurance regulations you may not use these elements on your own, camp staff is required to run them for you. There is also a liability form that each participant must sign before they will be allowed to participate. Late May through September the pools may also be available. Lifeguards/Adult supervision is required to be on each pool deck that is being used and is your responsibility. Also, at no additional cost, you may have a campfire. We provide the wood and light it for you at your convenience. You are also free to use the ball field, outdoor volleyball, and basketball court along with equipment. Boats are available for use but we require that an adult accompany children 18 and under.
You are responsible for providing insurance coverage for your group for the entire period of the retreat. Please have your insurance company provide Camp Illiana with a Certificate of Insurance prior to your visit. Camp Illiana’s insurance will cover only cases of gross negligence by the camp staff or facilities.
You are provided with a cleaning sheet detailing what is expected of your group in cleaning up before your departure. Check it off, sign it, and leave it with the camp staff. Damages should also be reported, and according to their nature and cause, may be billed to your group.
We are a Christian camp and wish for there to be Christian conduct exhibited at all times. Please be considerate of those who are renting the other lodges by not entering them and being quiet when near those lodges. Modesty and decency must prevail. Short or tight shorts, bare midriff, or revealing clothing are not preferred. Swimsuits should be one piece or a non see-through t-shirt worn over a two-piece for females.
  • We ask that you leave bicycles, scooters, skate boards, etc. at  home for safety purposes.
