What We Do
Summer camp, retreats and events, plus recreational vehicle (RV) and tent camping — Michigan Area United Methodist Camping has it all. Enjoy the glory of God’s creation in safe, clean, beautiful facilities all over Michigan: from the rugged northern woods, natural springs and the shores of Lake Louise at Camp Kinawind (Boyne Falls, MI) through the lower peninsula to the Irish Hills of Judson Collins (Onsted, MI) and the tall trees and cool breezes at Crystal Springs (Dowagiac, MI) and Wesley Woods (Dowling, MI). Experience the Great Lakes at Lake Michigan and Lake Huron Camp & Retreat Centers!
The summer camp programs of the Michigan Area United Methodist Camping ministry are about creating lifelong, life-changing memories for young people in a safe, fun, and caring environment.
Children (as well as adults at some camps) enjoy singing camp songs, sensing the sounds, sights, and smells of nature, creating new friendships, and discovering an ever-greater love for God in their hearts. Your child will grow in self-confidence, resourcefulness, and gratefulness as they encounter a spiritual awakening that will unfold over a lifetime. A variety of awesome, outdoors activities are available from archery to water sports. There also featured camps for adults and specially abled individuals! Learn more.
