Welcome to Camp Kinawind

Offering the classic north woods summer camp experience as a resource for growing faith in young people; Camp Kinawind is an all-too-rare treasure among Christian camps. Campers can kayak, canoe, sing, swim, worship, cook out, hike, and experience the challenge course while learning about God’s love for us. Horse programs are offered, and older campers have exciting opportunities to travel off-site to experience amazing wilderness areas in northern Michigan and beyond!

The program is designed to provide high-participation experiences for campers. Specifically through small-group living, where eight to 12 young people are paired with two counselors for the week, campers grow and learn by making age-appropriate decisions together about their activities for the week. Campers live in Christian community, enjoy outdoor camping and team-building activities.

Come join us for the experience of a lifetime!
