Discovering Life at Its Best since 1948

Hey parents! Thanks so much for considering Lake Ann Camp as a summer destination for your child. We’re convinced that there is no other summer camp that impacts the lives of young people like ours. Our summer church camp is located in the heart of pure Michigan. Only thirty minutes away from Lake Ann Camp is the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, voted America’s most beautiful place by Good Morning America. So grab a seat by the campfire, load a stick with marshmallows, and get ready for the best week of your life!

One of the major themes of our Junior High Christian summer camp program is teamwork.

They’ll discover how the river is a metaphor for life as speakers help campers grow in their faith.
