Michigan Congregational Summer Camp is usually the second week of July and is open to any student who, at the conclusion of the school year, will have completed grades 3 through 8.
The week of summer camp is such a valuable experience; it provides an incredible opportunity for campers to see how a Christian community can extend beyond Sunday services. This year camp will be held at YMCA Camp Ohiyesa in Holly MI. Camp Ohiyesa offers new activities, including horseback riding, a waterslide, and a voyager canoe. It also has some of the old favorites: gaga ball, zip line, swimming, canoeing, fishing, archery, arts/crafts and a giant swing. Campers will be enjoying family style meals in a low key area. Check out the camp at: www.ymcadetroit.org/ohiyesa.
The aim is that after a week of camp children will have new stories to tell, new friendships to continue, and a stronger faith. This is done through nature, engaging music, considerate teaching, and daily living. Campers are challenged to live by the fruits of the spirit and encouraged to choose the values of peace, joy, self-giving love, respect, and truth.
