United Methodist Summer Camps

camp-2Summer camp gives today’s youth a break from the plugged-in, fast-paced life at home and immerses them in God’s creation. They learn life skills living outdoors and a different sort of ABCs – like Archery, Bible Study, Canoeing…

Camp is a life-changing part of young people’s spiritual formation. Between the Detroit and West Michigan conferences, the United Methodist Church has a diverse number of camping opportunities for all ages!

Look for adventure, horseback riding, water sports, nature hikes, swimming and more. Your children or grandchildren are nurtured in nature to appreciate God, friendship and the great outdoors. Registration information is in the community room and online at http://umcamping.org . Link to online Brochure (it will take a minute or two to download the PDF).
