Volunteer

Without our volunteers we would not be able to continue to grow in our efforts to make disciples of Jesus Christ. You can choose to join us for a work day, volunteer for a week of camp, or bring your group to do a work project.

Volunteers are always needed for short-term projects.  Spring, summer and fall are critical times in which volunteers can be utilized for gardening and landscaping. There are also simple maintenance projects to be completed during that time – including carpentry, painting and facility clean up.

To volunteer or learn more: Contact lakemichigancampdirector@umcamping.org.

Summer Camp Dean / Director (volunteer) – The heart of our summer camping youth ministry.  Recruit counselor and develop an unforgettable program that leaves kids: having grown in their relationship with Christ, having had the best summer of their life, and wanting to come back as soon as they can.

Counselors (volunteer for a week or make it part of a whole summer employment at the lake) – Come spend the best week of your year here at the Lake.  Show kids leadership, discipleship, and insane fun!

Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat Center

Many thanks to the mission workgroup from St. Matthew UMC from Livonia. These wonderful folks blessed us with a weekend full of projects including building a new fire pit at our Welcome Center, repairing items in the Retreat Center, Welcome Center and on our south beach stairway. They helped to winterize our Dining Hall, worked in one of our new cabins, spread the gravel for our new staff cabin and fed us! Wow!!!

Thank you: Joe Black, Karen & Gary Burdick, Maggie & Drew Doty, Jennifer Day-Dufek, John Everett, Barb & Bill Harlow, Dick Horie, Fabian Lanzy, Bill Marken
