2020 Summer Camp

As of April 29: 2020 Summer Youth Camps Cancelled

  • With much prayer, consideration for the safety of campers and careful review of available information relating to social distancing guidelines and COVID-19, the Michigan Area United Methodist Camping Board of Directors unanimously voted to cancel all 2020 summer youth camping programs. This action impacts scheduled programs at Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat and Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center.
    Based on our survey of camper families, we share your disappointment that present conditions have forced us into making this difficult decision. Thank you for your patience and encouragement during this challenging time. We will work hard to return even stronger in 2021.
    If you have already registered for a 2020 summer camp event, we will contact you soon and you may choose to:
    Receive a full refund
    Apply your deposit or payments to a future program
    Generously donate part or all of your registration/deposit to the Camp of your choice.

Stay Safe, Rest in the Love of Jesus

We are disappointed to not be able to share together in the person the powerful love and joy we create at camp! Rest assured we are working toward making camp even better next year.

Michigan Area United Methodist Camping is committed to life-changing programming where children, youth and adults can:

  • Grow in faith and connect to God through Jesus Christ
  • Have fun and try new things from Archery to Zorbs!
  • Live in community with trained and compassionate counselors who will mentor your faith
  • Unplug from distractions
  • Be safe and accepted to build relationships that often last a lifetime
