Summer Camp Goals and Objectives

Our mission at Camp Michawana is to plant the Word of God into lives so that each camper will know Christ as their Savior and become unashamed in their faith, living purposely for the Lord.

We desire:

  1. To send each camper home to face life with a new or renewed commitment in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
  2. To send each camper home with the desire and ability to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
  3. To send each camper home with memories of wholesome, meaningful, and joyful experience.
  4. That each camper will experience new knowledge, habits, and skills that will enhance their self-image.
  5. To send each camper home knowing that all human life is sacred because it is created in the image of God. The child will learn that people are to be valued as people created in the image of God.

The Camp Experience Defined:

The Michawana experience intentionally combines faith and fun by providing tangible, physical parallels to our spiritual journeys in a place where young people not only hear, but also see and experience Jesus. Campers live in small, welcoming lodges where they are able to “start with a clean slate” and have healthy interaction with peers and develop personal, loving friendships with our staff. We constantly seek feedback to be sure that our programs and facilities continue to be innovative, creative, exciting, relevant and in alignment with our goals. We also ensure that our staff is thoroughly trained to be mission-driven and mission-effective in order to exceed expectations.

This experience stems from the foundational truth that this work is about how God, through Jesus, changes lives. Because of this, we love kids without pretense or judgment.
