Welcome to Judson Collins Center

Located in the Irish Hills of Southeast Michigan, Judson Collins Center offers Christian camps for children, youth, families and special needs adults in the summer, and retreat facilities for youth and adult groups year-round. As an ACA accredited camp you can expect quality care and attention from our well-trained, Christian counselors and support staff. We invite you to explore Judson Collins Center online and discover how we can serve you, your family, your congregation, or your group in camp and retreat ministry.

Judson Collins Center is a place where children, youth, and adults discover who they are in the context of God’s love; grow in their knowledge, awareness, and reflections of that love; and respond to God’s call to serve their congregation, community, and the world.
