Welcome to Judson Collins Camp & Retreat Center

Located in the Irish Hills of Southeast Michigan, Judson Collins Camp & Retreat Center offers Christian camps for children, youth, families and 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 Camp & Retreat Center online and discover how we can serve you, your family, your congregation, or your group in camp and retreat ministry.

At Judson Collins you discover who you are in the context of God’s love; grow in knowledge, awareness, and reflections of that love; and respond to God’s call to serve.

I feel like a proud mama bear lately as our summer staff have started their fall, going with God, to be leaders in our world. Mark leading worship, Maggie moved to a new city, Brenna started teaching again in Spain, Gretchen rocking her freshman year at UofM, Kate starting her au pair year, Tylar leading a new church, and so much more! I am so happy for them growing in faith and love that our relationships go beyond camp. You should be confident that campers are in good hands while at JCC! These young adults are the ultimate role models. 😉 Keep them all in your prayers. ... See MoreSee Less
