Partnership with Lawton Fire Department

By | Life at Camp | No Comments

Miracle Camp and Retreat Center has partnered with the Lawton Volunteer Fire Department to bring added safety to the campers that stay here each week.  Thanks to Tim Sepla, Fire Chief, who has helped check the grounds and prepare his crew for an emergency.

The Lawton Fire Department has also helped out with a committment to creating the best week of a camper’s life.  For junior and senior high weeks they have again agreed to come out and help spray campers with hoses after our “Fight Night.”  This was a blast last year and we apprecaite their help.

Our committment to safety extends beyond fire safety.  We have recently consulted with the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department for advice on natural disasters, evacuation techniques, and property security.  We take safety very seriously to make this a great place for you to enjoy!

Staff Training is Underway

By | Life at Camp, Summer Camp | No Comments

Our summer staff arrived May 28th and is getting ready for campers to arrive on June 8!  We are spending an intense week and a half preparing for any and every situation possible at MC this summer.  Safety is our number one priority, followed by fostering spiritual growth, and creating the best week of a kid’s life.  This year we have 50 staff from around the midwest.

In spite of all the intense training, we’ve managed to have some fun as well!!!

New Beach Work Completed

By | Life at Camp, Projects | No Comments

Thanks to a work team from Archbold, OH, we have a refreshed waterfront area.  More than 100 yards of fresh new sand was brought in to improve the beach area.  The work team helped remove old fencing from the area and make the area safer.

We are also looking forward to the completion of the new blob tower and waterslide which is underway.
