Alongside Family Camp, YOUTH CAMP is a week-long residential camp for grades 7 – 12.
A camping program for youth, grades 7 – 12, providing a variety of experiences within a wholesome Christian environment. This includes instruction in practical Christianity, worship services for inspiration and Christian commitment, recreational programs, opportunities for self-expression, and a variety of experiences with other youth who share their Christian values. We strive to help every camper discover how they can live out the “fruits of the Holy Spirit” (Galatians 5:22-23) — on a daily basis, demonstrating these “fruits” in the way they treat and respect their fellow campers, their counselors, other staff members and ultimately their families and friends.

Quinton (or Q as most of the youth call him), was born and raised on a dairy farm in Ortonville, MI. That farm is owned and operated by Quinton and the Cook family called Cook’s Farm Dairy. Ice cream making, cow care, and field work are everyday jobs that have instilled in him a hard work ethic, strong faith, and love for family. Quinton was brought to camp around the age of five with his two siblings by his grandma. He hasn’t missed a camp week since; growing up through the children and youth programs, counseling the youth, and now leading the youth as of 2017. It’s his favorite place on the planet and it’s where he first surrendered his life to Christ as a young teen.

Reign Fall is back!!! Formed a few years back, Reign Fall is coming for another year of praise and worship. Led by Frank Meely of Ascend Music Studios and consisting of band mates Eric McCutchen, Alex Price, Jarod Plank, Lauren Koetje, and Erica Donahue have built a relationship not only with the camp, but also the campers that have attended the past few year.
