The Michigan Area Camps, Campgrounds, and Retreat Centers are here for you, thanks to the vision and hard work of generations past and the generous support of those who have been touched by God while at one of our camps or have a heart for camping ministries. Each have been seen how God works in these beautiful places.

God has blessed us with some of the most beautiful spots in Michigan. Our goal is to care for these gifts and make them available for others to use at reasonable cost. In order to fulfill our goal we have a number of ways you can share your support:

  • We believe in the power of prayer, and we would appreciate your prayer support.
  • We have facilities which will continue to age, and need updating. Your financial support will help in this challenge. You may give a gift to a particular camp or to the ministry with a designation to ongoing maintenance.
  • If you would like to help at camp, we have an ever changing list of volunteer opportunities at our camps. Please feel free to contact the camp of your choice for opportunities serve through volunteering.
  • Contribute to one of our campaigns or established funds (ie: Changing Lives – A Fund for Camping Ministries, or the Scholarship fund)

Allow us to thank you in advance for considering a gift to further the ministry of Making Disciples of Jesus Christ through the camping ministries of the Michigan Area of the United Methodist Church.

May God bless you!

Your Camp, Campground, and Retreat Ministries Staff
