Christian Community Summer Camps are a special experience for the campers and the youth counselors alike. Below is a moment from the end-of-camp sharing event.

Campers and staff sing "Coreolena"

Campers and staff sing "Voro Voro" 


This year we’re celebrating 20 years of fun and reverence in the outdoors! We’re going by a new name, too: Camp Greenwood Lake. Named after the song by Brendan Taaffe that our youth campers love to sing, the name will remind us that camp is a community, not a place, as we transition into our new home at Camp Nawakwa near Cornell, WI. 

Camp Greenwood Lake (formerly the Midwest Christian Community Camp for Children) is a summer camp for children ages 8 - 13 based on the European model that has been in existence since the 1950s. While the flavor is distinctly American, we are proud to continue the original camps’ mission to provide children an escape from the buzz of everyday life, a retreat into nature and the natural rhythms of the day and night. Together we sing, tell stories, and create beautiful projects - swim, canoe, and build bonfires - joke, play, and celebrate with the Children’s Service on Sundays. Campers live with their counselors in groups of 5 to 10 children: they eat wholesome and delicious meals with their groups, go on hiking and canoeing adventures together, and create a family away from home that results in friendships that last for years to come.

COST: $800*

For older campers (high schoolers entering 9th-12th grade), much adventure awaits! This year we return to the Flambeau River for another canoe trip, July 17th - July 22nd, 2018.

Youth campers will bravely traverse the river, canoeing by day, camping by night, and singing at all times. We swim along with the canoes through cool and clean water while singing and laughing loudly. We find rustic campsites after a long day in the remote woods. We cook our meals together and wash up in the river, and we snack on the go by pulling off in groups of canoes, clinging together and tossing granola bars and jerky between boats. To keep the mood light, in past years we’ve played "Steal the Bacon" with donated fennel bulbs and induced tears of laughter with our improv scenes. Each night we gather around the fire and hear each other’s stories, stare with gaping jaws at the stars above, and rest beside the water to prepare for the next day’s journey.

COST: $750*


Tuesday, July 17th — Sunday, July 22nd

Put in at Deadman Slough Landing - pick up at Beaver Dam Landing. Our outfitter this summer is Big Bear Outfitters.

*The $750 contribution will cover the costs of food, equipment, and staff. Please include payment with the registration. No one should stay away for financial reasons.

"Not only do the children get to live outside for two weeks, but they are under the guidance of loving adults who provide home-cooked meals and encourage plenty of singing. My son had the best time!"  — S.D.
