Sleep Outs on the Dunes

Faith Challenge

Grow friendships during funny and wacky games, unique crafts, or relaxing but wild days on the beach of Lake Michigan. Plus, built-in unstructured time to connect and be yourself without an over-scheduled nonstop day.

Sailing Camp

High School Faith Challenge Camp plus daily sailing lessons on beautiful Lake Michigan with certified sailing instructors each afternoon.Campers must be able to swim.

  • $519

Late Night at the Lake 

Are you a night owl? Does staying up late and sleeping in sound like your speed? How about Lake Michigan sunsets, star gazing, beach bonfires, glow games, and a small group atmosphere?  This is camp at a different pace.

 

Outdoor Encounter 

Experience the awe of being surrounded by trees and wildlife. Listen to the sounds of the forest and the waves of the beach. Explore the 150+ acres of the camp’s plants, animals, and nature connections. Rain or shine, campers will sleep in tents, in a hammock in the woods, or under the stars on the beach. Cook on a fire and learn basic survival skills.

Camping season is far from over at Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat. This weekend our campground was full and we were excited to have University UMC from Lansing as one of our special groups.

Still at least 7 weeks of open camping for you to experience one of God’s special places on the lake!

If you walked the campground last night you would have experienced International worship as we hosted numerous groups including a Hispanic Youth Group from Holland, Michigan, a Czechoslovakian small group from Chicago, Illinois and the Russian speaking Slavic Baptist Church Father/Son Retreat from Goshen, Indiana. No matter what language was being spoken, every one agreed, you experience God’s love at Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat. ... See MoreSee Less
