What is the difference between the YMCA and the YWCA?

We are two different organizations much like Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts.  We have similar names, but we are structured a bit different. The YM caters to men and their families and the YW to women and their families.  Historically the YWCA took care of women and the YMCA took care of men until the 1970’s when the YMCA decided to increase its reach and serve women as well.  The YWCA has focused its mission on Empowering Women especially financially, and Eliminating Racism to bring all people together.

Is the Camp open during the winter?

We are a three season camp opening in Early April and closing at the end of November.  We do have a great Winter Party so people can come see camp in the winter, check our schedule!

What about Mosquitoes and Wildlife?

Well when it comes to mosquitoes we are fortunate and have about the lowest number in any camp in Michigan!  We only have possum, deer, raccoons, and an occasional skunk, but they are very afraid of people and you probably won’t get to see them.
