Resident Camp

 

#CampCountinues2021

We are very excited to announce that we are going to run both residential and day camp sessions in 2021!

HAVE FUN. MAKE FRIENDS. HEAR GOD. BELONG.

Why summer camp?

After many months of staying home, studying online, and being away from friends, this is a no brainer! A great summer camp, like Men-O-Lan, means opportunities to try new things, bonding over outdoor adventures, sharing stories at campfire, and breaking away from the pressure of social media. It means new and renewed friendships, inside jokes, and six days to build relationships that will last for many years to come. Camp is a place to figure out who you are. Camp is a game-changer. And whether you know God or you’ve never even thought you’d ever care, you’ll leave with a better understanding of His love for you.

 

Why choose Men-O-Lan?

Men-O-Lan’s mission is Life Change through Christ. Every single member on our Team is here to provide the backdrop and facilitate positive change and personal growth in the life of campers and staff alike. Our Camp has been a safe haven for thousands of children and youth for over 75 years who came from a diverse background, family situation, and socio-economic status. Whether a camper comes from a family that believes in Jesus or they don’t, they will feel equally loved and cherished at Men-O-Lan.

Men-O-Lan is a place where campers feel that they belong.

What about COVID-19?

Camp Men-O-Lan has been working with the American Camp Association (ACA), the Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA), and the Association of Camp Nurses (ACN), three major organizations to learn about the best practices in lowering the risks and preventing the spread of communicable diseases including COVID-19. In the summer of 2020 several camps ran with great success and we have been learning from these excellent examples. We are preparing for the summer with advanced planning and enhanced staff training. Our promise is that using the tools ACA, CCCA, ACN and the CDC provided we are going to do our very best to prevent illnesses, and if they occur, to efficiently mitigate the spread.
Here is a quick summery on what we are doing.
There is more information in our Playbook for Parents here.
We are also working on Camps Communicable Disease Plan (CDP) which will be available to families upon request before the summer starts.
