Camp Changes Lives!

There are many ways to help support Judson Collins Camp & Retreat Center. You can volunteer, be a prayer supporter, donate an item from our wish list, sponsor someone’s camp by paying for a campership, or choose a designated support option.


One of the best ways that you can support Judson Collins is through prayer! The camp and retreat ministry in Michigan is blessed by churches and individuals that faithfully keep us in their prayers.

Sponsor a Camper

The skills learned, the development of faith, and the relationships fostered at camp are often life-changing stepping stones on the road to adulthood. Children come to camp from all walks of life, eager to learn, yearning to make new friends, growing in their faith beliefs, ready to take on new challenges and discover gifts they didn’t know they had. Can you help give a child this experience? You can send a check payable to MAUMC (Michigan Area United Methodist Camping) to 1000 Hane Hwy., Onsted, MI 49265 and designate “Camp Scholarship Fund.”



International Staff Support

Christian young adults from Europe and Australia come to be part of camp staffs to enrich our camp programs by sharing their unique perspectives on faith and culture. They bring us to the understanding that our similarities far out weigh our differences. Campers receive much from their relationships, including inspiration, global awareness, commitment to peace, and growth in hospitality. To donate toward International Staff, send a check payable to MAUMC (Michigan Area United Methodist Camping) to 1000 Hane Hwy., Onsted, MI 49265 and designate “International Staff Support.”
