We are exited to share some pictures of the recently updated Retreat Center. Thanks to the efforts and donations of many, the Retreat Center has all new windows, doors, flooring, exhaust fans, LED lights, has been painted, blinds and curtains throughout, a shelf to hang items in each sleeping area, two full beds added and a new microwave above the stove!!!

If you were looking for a place to host your youth group, craft getaway, small group meeting, family reunion, sorority or sports teams... Please consider coming to Lake Michigan Camp and Retreat. Our retreat center (which is open year-round) sleeps 30 people in two dormitory style rooms, and has a common area with a full kitchen.

Thank you to all of you who supported this project and a special shout out to our Nomads
and 29er’s who gave so much of their time and resources this summer/fall!

We are blessed!
