Judson Collins Decommissioning


Bishop David Bard

On Saturday, November 7, 2020 a Decommissioning Service was held at Judson Collins Center. Judson Collins was closed at the end of 2019 and the property is being sold. Before the property is transferred to new ownership, the Michigan Area United Methodist Camping Board held a final worship service to celebrate the ministry of Judson Collins Center since 1952.

Our gratitude was lifted up for the ministry of Judson Collins Camp and Retreat Center with a powerful decommissioning service led by Bishop David Bard. Judson Collins remains holy for thousands whose lives were changed there through the camp experience.

Following the service people were invited to wander the

grounds one final time to remember and say farewell to this sacred place.
