How to Get Involved
Get Informed
Sign up for either our printed or electronic newsletter. We will keep you up to date on all the exciting programs and events taking place at Michindoh. We will also share encouraging stories of changed lives and opportunities to join in God's work in the ministry. We covet your prayers for Michindoh and would love to have you as a part of our prayer team. If you would like to be on our mailing list, send your email and/or physical address to:
Throughout the year, we have many individuals who volunteer at Michindoh. Some of our volunteers are retirees who bring their RVs and park them at Michindoh during a special project; some are church or youth groups looking for a service project. Whether you are young, old, or anywhere in between, you could use your talents and gifts at Michindoh.
Every year hundreds of children make a public confession of faith in Jesus while at Michindoh. Many of these children come back year after year and continue to grow in their faith; some even join our ministry team as teens or young adults. More than 80% of those who profess Christ took that step of faith as a child. Camping ministry has proven to be an extremely effective tool for reaching children with the gospel.

Each year we receive numerous requests for scholarships from families who cannot afford to send their children to camp. In 2015, over $7,000 was provided in scholarships for our regular camps, only a small percentage of those scholarships were funded. Besides those scholarships, Michindoh subsidized special camps to reach the unchurched camper in the sum of over $45,000, providing a full session of Christian camping for $90, or about a third of the cost of camp. In all, close to $70,000 was provided to campers in the form of scholarships, subsidized programs, and discounts, to make Christian camping available to as many children as possible.

As you can imagine, it is becoming increasingly difficult to provide these scholarships and special subsidized programs. If God has blessed you with extra, please consider making a special gift towards our scholarship fund. It could make an eternal difference in the life of a child. A gift in any amount would be appreciated.  Contact us at to arrange your donation.
