Chapel Times (2017)...

On Memorial Day adults and teens will hear from John Barnett, senior pastor of Calvary Bible Church in Kalamazoo.

On Labor Day our speaker for teens and adults is Ken Pierpont, senior pastor of Evangel Baptist Church in Taylor, Michigan.

We offer separate classes during each weekend’s chapels for children from newborn through age eleven. Our speaker for children ages 7-11 is God’s Helping Hands, a ministry to children out of Gobels, MI. Each group of children will be cared for by our own resident staff and carefully screened volunteers.

Accommodation Options…

Families of four or more may choose to stay as a family in one of our cabins/lodges. These offer one spacious room with bunk beds for as many as 12 people, plus your own indoor bathroom with shower. There is no cooking in these facilities, so meals need to be taken in the Dining Hall.
