Clergy Family Camp
Stonger marriages, strong families, more effective ministry.
A time for ministry families to relax, renew, and reconnect.
Family camp for clergy and ministry professionals is an opportunity for those in ministry to break from the hectic schedules and spend time in renewal and relaxation with their families and others in ministry. The week provides time to connect with other colleagues, spouses, and children in an informal setting and is a great opportunity to grow professionally and as a family.
Worshipping together as a family is not common among those in professional ministry. Each day begins with a family worship experience, allowing clergy and ministry professionals to worship God with their spouse and children. Guest preachers from the Detroit and West Michigan Conferences provide the teaching each morning.

Learning opportunities for each age group are provided daily as a way to grow in our relationship with Christ and each other. Child care, staffed by adults and teens, is offered for children ages 3 and under during the mornings. For children ages 4-6 and 7 and up, volunteers from the Lake Louise Christian Community lead two tracks of engaging programs that encouarge kids to learn together, make friends, and have fun. For the adults, clergy/ministry professionals and spouses meet in groups to connect and learn from one another under the guidance of guest presenters.
Numerous recreation opportunities allow families the chance to have fun and be free from the stresses of ministry. Each afternoon children and adults have the chance to play together on the camp grounds or at the beach. Each evening features family-style games and organized activities. In addition, a time for adults to connect around the campfire is offered while the children are treated to a movie and supervised by camp staff. Babysitters are also available for younger children while they sleep. On Wednesday, families are given a free day to explore Northern Michigan with other families or by themselves or simply relax at the camp.
