Great Oaks is a multi-purpose facility sitting on the bluffs above the Illinois River valley. Since 1972, Great Oaks has been serving the urban youth of Peoria. Over the past three decades, they have provided a free week of camp to thousands of low-income youth. In a safe, rural atmosphere, Great Oaks’ staff seeks to demonstrate the love of God to children who are surrounded by drugs, gangs, and domestic violence in their everyday lives.
