why work at

Camp Michawana

We are picky on who we hire.... counseling and leading kids and teens is a big responsibility, but we will train and equip you to do it right! This is more than a Summer Job, it's ministry training for life!

why camp with us

Camp Michawana, Where Christ is First, is a beautiful year-round youth camp, retreat center and RV Campground located on beautiful Long Lake in Hastings, Michigan.

Kids need camp. Adults need camp. Today like never before, people need the opportunity to break away from the everyday hustle and pressures of life to get a breath of fresh air. Camp Michawana provides that opportunity for kids and adults through strategic programming, exciting adventure, updated facilities and Biblical study.

Camp Michawana, Where Christ is First, is the perfect mix of discovering and developing relationships and challenging yourself and taking risks in a safe environment.

The girls also had a fun time on the water trampoline, in fact I think that was their favorite!! Thank-you for a wonderful week-end!
