The Friends (Quaker) church camp at Camp Quaker Heights in Eldora, Iowa is a beautiful setting with great history. The camp sits on the bluff of the river with swimming, fishing and fellowship.

The men organized in 1946 with the development of a Youth Camp as their first and major project. Land was purchased near Eldora on Pine Lake in 1947. By 1963 Friendship Lodge (dining hall and kitchen), twelve cabins, a chapel, outdoor chapel, guest cottage and caretaker’s cottage had been built and the name Quaker Heights given to the camp. Many young people participate every summer in Youth Camps, making commitments to Jesus Christ and transforming lives.

Since 1948, Camp Quaker Heights has used the natural beauty of God’s creation to present the truths of the Christian life through Christ-Centered programs designed to minister to the whole person. Coed, ages 7 to adult. Recent improvements include completion of a full-sized basketball court. In 2006 the camp completed an addition of Tall Oaks Lodge, a 9 bedroom facility with a great room, fireplace, kitchen and fellowship. Available for rent by contacting the camp director.
