Here is a little about us...
In September of 1962, the Waterloo Church of Christ (now River’s Edge Christian Church) invited men of the area Church of Christ / Christian Churches to a spaghetti dinner and a program. This was the beginning of the Area Men’s Fellowship. At this first meeting it was decided to have a project for the Men’s Fellowship. At the next meeting, the camp was chosen as the Men’s Fellowship project.
Several properties were investigated, but God opened the door for the Bristow property. Between October 1962 and February 1963, eight churches committed to helping the camp incorporate. The trustee board forged ahead with plans to hold the first camp on the grounds in 1963 but, due to problems drilling a well, the camp had to be postponed for one more year. Since then, many buildings were added and upgrades were made.
God has provided so many blessings for the camp and blessed the efforts of those with the vision to reach the lost. The Executive Board and Board of Trustees are committed to the future of the camp and any changes that will make the camp relevant and true to God’s Word. May the story continue for years to come! Thank you everyone – past, present, and future – for your love and service to NEICSC.
Hear from some of our campers, staff and volunteers!
Read a message from Juan Salas. He was a former camper and served as an intern for several summers.
Also read about our first featured dean, Jason Miner. He serves at the Mason City Church of Christ and is a 4th-6th grade dean at camp.
