About Us

Homeward Trail Bible Camp occupies 12 acres of beautiful creek bottom ground 1/4 mile north and 1 mile east of Mason City, NE. Since 1952 we have served the surrounding communities with a campground that is focused on reaching people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are non-denominational and partner with area churches and individuals who share the same vision.  True to our name, we emphasize study of the Bible in a rustic and caring environment.

We offer youth camps in the summer months as well as various youth and adult retreats the rest of the year.  We own the rodeo grounds in Mason City and offer a rodeo camp at the end of June. You can also rent the campground or the rodeo grounds for a variety of events such as family reunions, youth group retreats, birthday parties, etc.  We can accommodate about a hundred people at one time and have a variety of activities that include paintball, indoor games, and a softball field.  Please contact us if you have any questions about our camping programs or renting the facility.

Cole and Jenny Leach are the current Directors of the camp and work year round alongside two other full time staff, Marshall Kohls and Philip Chase.  The camp is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers who share the same call of spreading the gospel.  The Leaches, Kohls, and Chases all raise their own financial support as full-time missionaries and count it a privilege to be able to serve the Lord at Homeward Trail.

Homeward Trail Inc. is a non-profit corporation and we rely on donations to continue to operate and grow.  We are extremely grateful for all who have partnered with us to allow us to continue to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ in central Nebraska.
