Called By Name


Discover how God loves you and calls you by name!

The first thing that happens at camp is that your name is called. You are known in the camp community as welcomed, loved, and encouraged to be who God calls you to be. We can’t wait to meet you, know you and call you by name as a friend in Christ!

Choose a week of camp — or a half-week “Mini Camp” for younger children — based on your grade level in the Fall of 2022. Choose one of three locations. Every camp includes lots of outdoor fun, Bible study and devotions, great food, singing and praising God, and time to try new things. Trained staff and volunteers care for you and build a welcoming community. Specialty camps add specific activities; extra fees may apply.

Beautiful Setting in Southwest Michigan

Enjoy the newly refurbished swimming pool with slide, bath house, and chapel, as well as kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards. Campfires, scenic views and worship help every day become more sacred as campers grow closer to God in Jesus Christ.

Full week camps start at $420

Mini Camps (four days and three nights) are offered for the younger elementary camps who may not be ready for a full week away from home (grades K, 1, 2, 3 – depending on the week). $199


First Time Camper Rebate

We know that once you come to camp, you’re going to come back. So when you register for the first time, you’re eligible for the First-Time Camper rebate. Returning campers can earn the rebate by inviting someone new to camp — you both earn the rebate. $50 off full week events, $25 off mini camps.
