Resources for children


Elim Christian Services is no longer accepting new students in the residential program. The program will be closing by the year 2015.

Residential services in Elim’s Kamp Cottage are provided for children who are already enrolled in the program and at Elim Christian School. The school-residential partnership enhances and continues their education, even when they are not in the classroom.

Children already enrolled in the program are encouraged to reach their God-given potential in a Christian atmosphere that is encouraging and where they feel secure. We seek to provide that kind of environment at Kamp Cottage. It is also very important that parents/guardians remain a part of their child’s life. Regular weekend visits home are strongly encouraged.

Kamp Cottage is licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
