High School Camps

 Michigan Area United Methodist Camping Board of Directors unanimously voted to cancel all 2020 summer youth camping programs. This difficult decision was made with much prayer, consideration for the safety of campers and careful review of available information relating to social distancing guidelines and COVID-19. With prayer and support from you — our camper families and churches — we can weather this storm and use this time to improve programs and facilities to serve you better.
