"Camp was where I gave my life to Christ, have grown in my faith, and met some of my best friends. Every year it is the week when I can be myself, have fun, and worship God in a setting unlike any other!"
"The high school camp at Wesley Woods is the most beautiful, messy Love I've ever experienced."
"Camp is a place for all to know God's love: a place for us to see, feel, and be overwhelmed and amazed by it!"
While the conference tries to make camps accessible it is an expensive endeavor and so the church wants to provide scholarships to assist families in sending their children.
HELP KIDS GO TO CAMP
f you do not have a child in camp but desire for a child to experience the love and grace and fun of Christ at our camps this summer please consider making a generous donation to our camp scholarship fund and perhaps even sponsoring a child in full to attend the summer.
From Pastor Matt
From Pastor Matt: One of the most wonderful and life-impacting ministries organized by the United Methodist Church in Michigan is our Christian camping network. We have several beautiful campsites around the state with week-long and partial week camps all summer long for kids of all ages. As the pastor of this congregation, I can attest that in all of my life growing up in the church, camp has had the most profound impact on my spiritual life. Since I began attending in third grade, I have not missed a summer. I have continued to serve in my adult years as a counselor, teacher and leader and find great joy in the opportunity to serve on a high school camp staff with several members of our church!
If you desire to send your child to camp this summer, and I hope you do, please go online to umcamping.org to determine which week would work best for your family – and if you need some guidance, please contact Pastor Matt or Deacon Cara. Perhaps those of us with kids around the can send our kids together the same week!
