Everyone Is Welcome at Methodist Camps

Michigan Camps Stand Together on Welcoming Statement

As camp and retreat centers historically related and currently affiliated with the Michigan Conference of the United Methodist Church we offer places and experiences of hospitality, common ground, and safety for all. That doesn’t change and it never will.  We are uniquely positioned to provide healing, inspiring and liberating experiences for all God’s people in the midst of a troubled world and a church in transition. Welcome!

United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries commit to provide:

  • Intentional places set apart to encounter God.
  • Genuine Christian hospitality and community.
  • Experiences that nurture Christian faith and discipleship.
  • Development of spiritual servant leaders.
  • Teaching on creation care and appreciation.
  • Collaboration with churches and agencies.
  • Inspiration for all campers and guests to do love and justice.
