Things you won't experience at camp:
Michigan Congregational Summer Camp is a cooperative effort of the Michigan Conference of Congregational Christian Churches. Our camp staff consists of clergy, lay leaders and students from all over Michigan. They provide Christian leadership in the cabins, programs, and classes. Each staff member participates on a volunteer basis.
We are a Christian camp. By that we mean we are Christ-centered and believe that the Holy Spirit lives in the staff and campers. We believe in the freedom and responsibility of the individual soul and the right to private decision making.
Our purpose is to help campers develop, through the Christian camping experience, a knowledge of God, the Bible, and the life and teachings of Christ. Campers learn to live together as Christians, growing in Christian responsibility, citizenship, and fellowship. It is our prayer and hope that the lessons learned at camp will affect the lives of the campers beyond their camping experience.
When is it?
Sunday, July 10- Friday, July 15th, 2022
Campers check in from 3-4:30PM on Sunday, July 10th. (Counselors and staff arrive the day before for training) Camp ends with a Closing Reception and awards ceremony at 5:30PM on Friday, July 15th*. The Closing Reception usually last about an hour.
Please feel free to call Mary Lynne Sklba, our Camp Registrar, if there are any extenuating tie-ups or dietary concerns. You may reach Mary Lynne at 989-643-7317.

Where is it?
Michigan Congregational Summer Camp meets at YMCA Camp Ohiyesa
(7300 Hickory Ridge Rd. Holly, MI 48442).
Who is it for?
This is the "Mary Lynne Sklba Award", otherwise known as the "Fruits of the Spirit" Award. This award is given to the camper who demonstrates the 9 qualities of the 'Fruits of the Spirit.'
How much does it cost?
These are great rates for a full week of camp, we realize times are tight for many families. But, if you submit a non-refundable deposit of $75 before June 1st, not only will you secure a lower price, you can also make smaller payments over time. Just remember that all remaining balances are due by July 1st (minus the $75 deposit that were applied for the early registration.)
Lastly, if you miss all deadlines... please check with us!! We generally have room available (for a camper or two) in several of the cabins.
If you need financial assistance with the cost of camp, talk to your church! Many churches have scholarship funds available for kids to attend camp. And contact our camp director, Rev. Sarah Terlouw, about possible scholarship funds available for camp this year.
