Overview of MC

By | Updates | No Comments

“You have events in the winter?” “What do you do when you don’t have summer camp?” “What kind of groups do you serve/host?”

These are great questions that we frequently receive! A lot happens here at Miracle Camp, and we want you to be in the know. As observed from our name, we are a camp and retreat center. But what do we actually do?

Who is Miracle Camp for?
Everyone. All year long, we host different events for specific age groups and demographics. We create programmed events designed for youth, women, men, married couples, families, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, pastors, and more. Some new additions we will feature in the coming year are our Mother/Son and Father/Daughter retreats, as well as a retreat geared toward Young Adults. Additionally, we offer our space to guest groups who want to hold a retreat of their own.

What are guest groups?
Glad you asked. Guest groups include people from churches to family reunions to colleges and a variety of other groups. Miracle Camp aims to provide a retreat atmosphere so guest groups can enjoy nature, a comfortable space to meet, good food, and fun activities. Want to book Miracle Camp for your next retreat?

What activities are offered in the colder months?
Though the waterfront activities are not in use during the cold season, the fun doesn’t stop. In fact, one of our busiest seasons is winter, due to our youth Ice Camps from January to March. The beautiful Michigan winter is the opportune time for our outdoor activities such as snowshoeing, winter tubing, snow field games, broomball, etc. Warm up with a hot drink from the coffee shop or join a group of friends playing board games. Our craft shack, gymnasium, game room, and camp store are available year-round as well.

Why does Miracle Camp exist?
Miracle Camp aims to facilitate life change by helping people grow closer to God. We desire to glorify God in everything we do, from planning events to running activities to preparing food. Ensuring that we provide a biblical focus with excellent hospitality is a top priority. God has given us this space for a purpose, and we want to share it with you.

Update on the Evergreen Project!

By | Keeping Faith, Updates | No Comments

A lot is happening with the Evergreen Project, and we are excited to share an update!

Most recently, concrete floors have been poured. They are now completed in the interior gathering area between the bunkhouses as well as the front and side porch entries.

We are thrilled to have a volunteer group from Morton church next week that will begin working on the building’s exterior siding and overhang. One of our goals is to get the eave-spouts and downspouts installed soon to prevent all the rain running off the roof from washing out the hills that lead down to Bankson Lake.

The next phase of this project is to install the underground plumbing so the concrete floors can be completed and stud walls erected for the bunk rooms and bathrooms. This will also allow us to install all the exterior doors and close up the building before the cold weather gets here. We will then be able to continue the work on the HVAC and electrical installations throughout the winter.

Stay tuned in the coming months to see the progress! To find out more about the Evergreen Project, click the button below!

Evergreen Project Update!

By | Keeping Faith, Updates, Video | No Comments

We are so excited to share with you the progress we have made on the Evergreen Project this year! It is hard to believe that in just a couple months one of our cabins can look so different. Only so much can be communicated in words to describe this renovation. That being said, we would love to give you a better picture on just how much work has been completed on Evergreen through this short timelapse video showing everything that we have done so far this spring!

As you can see, there has been so much progress on this renovation. We always want to thank you for your support of Miracle Camp and the Keeping Faith Campaign. Because of your generosity, Miracle Camp can continue to grow and share the Good News of Jesus Christ with more and more guests every year!

We would love to continue making camp a better place for our guests and we know that we can’t do that alone. If you would like to learn more about the Keeping Faith Campaign, or would like to donate, click the button below!

By | Giving, Life at Camp, Updates | No Comments

We are excited to announce that we have officially reached our $300,000 matching goal on the Evergreen Project! Thank you for your help in funding this project, which will allow us to serve more guests for Summer Camp, Man Camp, Women’s Retreat, Ice Camp, and Marriage Retreat. The addition of the 4,000 square foot meeting space will also provide the opportunity to host at least 10 more guest groups every year.

Construction on the Evergreen Project is already underway! We are anxiously waiting for weather to improve, so construction on the foundation can continue!

We want to say THANK YOU for all of your support of the Evergreen Project and the Keeping Faith campaign. Because of your help, we have been able to completely fund the Evergreen Project and serve our guests to the best of our ability every year. We love seeing more and more people come through our doors and hear the message of Christ preached. It is because of your generosity the Miracle Camp exists and can serve the local Church!

PRICE FREEZE for 2018!

By | MC Squared, Updates | No Comments

Because of your continued support and generosity, we are able to freeze the 2018 prices for all programmed events! This means that the prices for the 2017 programmed events will be the same in 2018!

We want to see as many guests come to camp to hear the message of Jesus Christ as possible and this price freeze is just one of the ways we are trying to provide more opportunities for guests to be able to come.

Update on the Evergreen Project!

By | Keeping Faith, MC Squared, Projects, Updates | No Comments

We are getting closer and closer to our $300,000 matching goal! So far, we have raised over $231,000 since early December! We want to thank you all so much for your generosity and support. As you can see, we have already begun dropping trees around the Evergreen building as we prepare for the renovation. We are so excited to see everything coming together! However, we still need your help in raising $69,000 more this year. Any gift, whether big or small, goes a long way in helping us serve others and continue to preach Jesus to thousands every year!

We again thank you all so much for your financial and prayerful support!
