Safety At Summer Camp

At Miracle Camp and Retreat Center, we take great care to observe 3 basic summer camp priorities…safety, spiritual growth, and fun.  Of those, safety is our highest priority.  Here are a couple highlights of our efforts to make Miracle Camp what we feel is one of the safest camps in Michigan!

On Site Health Officers

Each week of camp has 2 licensed Health Officers on staff plus a medical assistant. These health officers help administer medication and respond to emergencies, big and small.

Certified Lifeguards

We have 8  lifeguards on summer staff the entire free time on the waterfront. That is 6 more lifeguards than we are required to have by law.  All lifeguards are Red Cross certified and trained on our emergency procedures.

Low Staff to Camper Ratio

Each week we have 1 staff for every 4 campers to ensure a high degree of safety and quality relationships built.

Background Checks

Each staff member is screened with a background check and 3 references before they work at camp.

In Person Interviews

Last year we interviewed 90 applicants for 50 summer positions…IN PERSON! We travelled more than 2,000 miles over the course of the interviews to make sure we had the best staff possible. Having this many applicants gives us a lot of choice to pick the most TOP NOTCH, well qualified staff that are going to take care of your child while they’re here in Michigan.

A Place Where Lives Are Changed

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking at our purposes, goals, priorities, or values…if you spend a little time around Miracle Camp and Retreat Center, you will know that we’re focused on helping people know God in a deeper way!  We believe that relationships are the heart of ministry and each summer, our counselors will pour their hearts and lives into the campers in their care.  Helping people know God more is why we exist and what we hope will happen to your camper while they are here in Michigan!

Keep Growing at Home!

DocumentAs much as we want to, we can’t send your counselor home with you! But just because your week of camp is done doesn’t mean you have to be done growing closer to God. Before you left camp on Saturday you should have gotten a follow-up packet with helpful guides on how to read your Bible, how to pray, and very practical things you can do at home to grow closer to Christ. If you want to keep going through stuff like this, or want to share it with a friend, we have those same resources right here for you! Just click on the icon on the left!

Relevant Chapel Sessions

Campers get to experience 2 chapel sessions each day that include worship and a Bible teacher who will communicate God’s word on a level relevant to the age of the campers.  We believe that the Bible is powerful and changes lives and we want campers to experience this each week.

Cabin Devotions

After the evening chapel session, campers will have an opportunity to have a devotional led by their counselor and to have some time discussing what the speaker talked about in chapel that night.  This will allow campers to be able to personalize the topic of the chapel session.

Counselor Mentors

Each counselor will have an hour one on one conversation with each camper.  These discussions are put into place so that each counselor can help each camper grow closer to God personally.  Counselors are trained to challenge students to read and apply God’s word and to spend time in prayer.

Daily Personal Devotions

In the morning after the chapel session each camper will have the ability to spend some time outside with their Bible and a daily devotional.  We want to train campers not just to hear God’s word, but also to read and study it for themselves.

Cabin Preview

Below is a preview of each of our cabins that we use each summer.  Each cabin has multiple rooms that look like the image shown below.  Cabins are assigned randomly based on cabinmate requests and thus we are unable to accommodate specific cabin requests.  All cabins are air conditioned and have a bathroom in the room in which your camper is staying.

Healthy, Tasty Meals

We don’t believe in cooking “camp food” at Miracle Camp and Retreat Center.  We want each meal to be extremely tasty as well as nutritious.  Below is a sample menu from a typical day of summer camp.  This menu may vary based on the age of campers and obviously we serve different menus each day.  However, you can expect a similarly balanced meal for your child at summer camp.

Food allergies?

If your camper has any food allergies, simply note this on your registration form in the medical section and we will take care of their specific nutritional needs.  We are here to serve you and help your camper have an awesome week at camp.

Who will be taking care of my camper?

Each year we hire around 50 college age students to lead our summer camps. We have a program office of 10 junior or senior college age students that make up our leadership team and 40 college staff that work as counselors, lifeguards, and in a variety of other capacities.

Each staff member has been screened through our many safety precautions and a personal interview. They are quality young people who are seeking to grow deeper in their relationship with God.

We interview around 130 applicants and end up hiring around 50 students so we have an excellent, quality staff that is committed to doing whatever it takes to caring for your child.

Our first summer camp priority is safety and we take it very seriously.  We have safety training, policies and background checks in place to ensure your camper will have a safe week of camp.  But the most important thing we do for safety is take hiring seriously.  We believe that our staff is one of the safest summer camp teams in the nation.

Spiritual Growth

Our second priority at summer camp is to make sure that each camper grows closer to God while they are here.  We want to make sure that the Bible is preached clearly and relevantly to every camper and that each counselor challenges campers to apply God’s word to their life.


It might sound shallow, but we truly hope that every camper has one of the best weeks of their life while they are at Miracle Camp.  Our staff strives to spend time with each camper, to do activities and games that can’t be done at home, and to provide creative experiences for each kid.  We truly do believe that campers have as much fun here as at Disney World!

Medical Staff

Each week of summer camp, we have trained medical staff who are qualified to handle a potential emergency situation. We take every precaution to make sure everything we do is as safe as possible and we make sure we are prepared if an injury or emergency should arise.


We want to keep you in the loop while your child is at camp. You will be able to see the fun your camper is having through photos uploaded each day and can follow along with the lessons they are learning in chapel through our podcasts. You also can send your child a letter or package to let them know you are thinking about them!

Dietary Needs

Our kitchen staff is awesome at meeting the dietary needs of campers that are here. We want you to be able to send your child to camp without worrying about what they will have to eat. Let our chef know about any dietary needs before you child comes to camp by emailing us at

Maddie loved her counselor and is inspired to be a counselor when she gets older. She has continued to use the worship journal and is growing her faith.

A summer camper parent

My daughter was thrilled with her "one-on-one" with her counselor, Katelyn, and was able to articulate how she grew in Christ during the week. This is priceless! Thanks for your ministry.

A mother

I love the pictures posted daily. As a parent with a child away at camp for a week, that is the highlight of the day...checking pictures each day and seeing everyone having fun with the activities.
