Myers Lake Property
Myers Lake Campground has been sold with final closing documents signed in February 2020. The Michigan Area United Methodist Camping Board of Directors has committed funds from sales of camp properties to upgrades and renovations at its active sites.
Building a complete Master Plan for the organization is currently underway with Kaleidoscope, a nationally recognized firm that provides professional services to camps and retreat centers to help them thrive. Future expenditures for site improvements will be allocated after the Board evaluates the Master Plan and determines future needs and projects.
Most recently with the sale of Albright Park Camp & Retreat Center, the Board dedicated part of the funds to immediate improvements at Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center (Dowling, MI) and Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat (Pentwater, MI).
Myers Lake had been closed since 2019 when the Board made significant changes to the camping program due to financial constraints internally and at the conference level of the United Methodist Church.
For the 2020 season spring retreat rentals and summer camp programs for kindergarten through adults are offered at Lake Huron Retreat Center (Burtchville), Lake Michigan, and Wesley Woods. Two campgrounds provide opportunities for RV/tent and cabin camping: Lake Michigan Camp & Retreat and Lakeview Family Campground (Lakeview).
Churches, nonprofits, schools, families, teams and groups are encouraged to use these facilities throughout the year and participate in summer programming. Increased utilization will help the Board maintain and grow the camping ministry at these sites.
