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. 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.
2020 Summer Camp
It is the Summer Camp Board’s hope is that later this summer, or into the fall, we will be able to gather as a camp community for a one day family carnival. That way all of our campers will have a chance to connect, our families can have some fun together, and we can finally put our arms around each other and sing our favorite worship songs! Details will come… eventually. The Michigan Congregational Summer Camp Board is continuing to uphold Michigan state guidelines. When it is safe to gather as a big group again we will announce a date for the carnival.
Youth United Volunteer Camp is usually the first week of August and is open to all middle school and high school students.
Celebrating the multi-cultural diverse community of Farmington Hills, Youth United, has conducted a five day experience the last few summers. Interfaith youth have been able to join together and give back to their community in a positive way and work to build peace by making bridges. Youth United has worked each summer to benefit C.A.R.E.S. of Farmington Hills, a village of hope in our community that demonstrates the power of treating all neighbors with compassion and dignity.
