Camp Changes Lives!

There are many ways to help support Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat. 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 Lake Michigan is through prayer! The camp and retreat ministry in Michigan is blessed by churches and individuals that faithfully keep us in their prayers.

The Friends of Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat Center is a group open to all who are committed to the improvement and support of its facilities, ministries, and staff. Support could include spring clean up, taking photos, promoting camp at your church, or other ideas. Contact Dana Hunt, to learn more.

Wish List

We’re always on the lookout for various items, new, used, loaned. Please consult Dana Hunt, to learn more.


Our beautiful waterfront facilities offer children, youth and adults a unique opportunity to relax, engage their faith, learn something new and meet new people. There are always things that need repair and updating. There are always ways to help make Lake Michigan better for serving God and God’s people. Camp can change a life in ways only God can imagine — and that is powerful! Give online to a scholarship fund or the ministry annual fund to keep camp affordable for everyone!
