Support

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.

Prayer

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.

Become a Friend

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 Erik Bengston, info@lakemichigancamp.org to learn more.

Wish List

We’re always on the lookout for various items, new, used, loaned. Please consult Erik Bengston, info@lakemichigancamp.org to learn more.

Donations

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!

What a great day for this volunteer weekend. We raised 30 tents by 4 pm. That could be a record… Led by 10 Lansing Family Campers we had 36 people join us for the weekend from the Pentwater Service Club , Jackson Family Camp, and several others. Tomorrow we will put in a few more hours before everyone departs.

If you were not able to make it this time we will have another October 1 weekend. Enjoy a few pics from today.

Earlier this week the Nomads, Mission Volunteers started projects and last night and tonight we have had volunteers come in from Family Camp, First United Methodist Church, Jackson, Michigan , Whitehall, and Keego Harbor. More will be arriving tonight and tomorrow. Our seasonal staff Abby, Kelsey and Benito are back on site for another awesome summer!!! Here are some wonderful pictures of our volunteers helping to get our Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat ready.

We have plenty of space, lots of food and a great weather weekend if you would like to join us…
