Jensen Woods Camp

Camp Point, Illinois 

 

Imagine a place so serene, beautiful in every season and so peaceful that you feel one with nature and the Creator. There is such a cozy, secluded spot. It may be closer than you realize. A place where babbling brooks are nestled among trees galore, and two ponds provide the fun of fishing and kayaking.

It is an area touched by the hand of God. Everywhere you look you see the Master’s strokes, in the abundance of nature. Enjoy the opulence of God’s artwork. Now imagine yourself, one with your horse as you ride through 15 miles of magnificent trails that twist and turn throughout the beauty that is Jensen Woods Camp. Okay, now this will take some real imagination: your trail experience will only cost you a freewill donation. Your donation helps to preserve the beauty of Jensen Woods Camp. Don’t own a horse? Come walk our trails or schedule a guided horse ride through our 550 acres. Guided rides cost just $25 per person. Your ride will last 1 hour, but you need to allow 2 hours to assist in the grooming and pre-ride preparation. You will not be sorry you chose the horse trails of Jensen Woods Camp to ride on. Value, quality, and beauty are what make the horse trails at Jensen Woods Camp a memorable experience.

A variety of majestic trees, lovely wildflowers, and lots of wildlife can be found throughout the 550 acres of magical wilderness while you and your horse explore nature. Located in Brown County just 5 miles north of Timewell, Illinois it is a place to unwind, unplug and undo all the stress and worries of everyday life. Jensen Woods Camp is the perfect place to commune with nature and feel closer to God all while enjoying a relaxing, fun-filled leisure ride through our wonderful horse trails.  Jensen Woods trails feature creek crossings, hills, and meadows. The terrain is mostly rolling, with a couple of long hills. There is even a Native American Burial Mound. The footing is good, our camp horses are left barefoot. We have paddocks for horses or portable panels for stalls if you prefer.  The camp has a variety of lodging options including, 8 tree houses, (including handicapped accessible), 6 RV sites, 4 bunkhouse rooms with attached bathrooms, an A-frame cabin that sleeps 9, a caretaker house that sleeps 12, and areas for tent camping. Dixon Lodge offers a meeting hall, a new commercial kitchen, as well as an indoor chapel, a small kitchen, and handicapped-accessible restrooms. There are 2 outdoor chapels, a shelter house, 2 shower houses, and mowed areas for outdoor games and 2 ponds provide a place for kayaking and fishing. All options are offered for a nominal fee.

Jensen Woods Camp is a non-denominational Christian camp owned and operated by Jensen Camp Foundation. The Foundation worked extremely hard from 2014 through 2018, to save this camp from bulldozer destruction. JCF purchased and re-opened the camp on August 27, 2018, as a 501c3 charity.  Jensen Woods Camp had its origins in the heart of a Methodist man of faith who was deeply committed to camping as a vital means of making young disciples of Jesus Christ. The camp has been in existence for over 50 years. Thousands of volunteer hours and donated materials have been put into this majestic property.  It is a must-see and an experience you will not forget. Bring your horse and “Come Meet God in the Woods”!
