Camp Getaway

This camp is for the parents of children attending one of our youth camps. If you want your child to participate in the youth camp experience but are unsure about them sleeping at camp, this is for your family. Your youth will attend all youth camp events beginning with breakfast each morning and ending with fire bowl each evening. After fire bowl your camper will be escorted to your campsite for sleeping. Registration includes 6 nights (or 3 for mini) camp site rental for your RV or use of one platform tents and a continental breakfast on Saturday. Call it a day camp, call it a retreat, this is your time to have days to yourself!

Note: Parents will not be allowed to participate or be with youth during the day. Price is for one RV or one platform site and one breakfast on Saturday. Youth camps are at normal price. This is a two-part registration: Register your camper in the event he or she wants to attend. Register yourself as parent here, if you wish to stay in a platform tent.
For an RV site or to use your own tent, please call Lake Michigan Camp at 231-869-5627.
