Summer Camp 2022 was incredible. We are ready for an even more amazing 2023!
HAVE FUN. MAKE FRIENDS. HEAR GOD. BELONG.
Why summer camp?
Summer camps play an extremely important in the lives of campers and staff members. Organic (=real life) friendships are more precious than ever. Kids being outside and having off-screen, good experiences is invaluable and profoundly necessary for both their mental and physical health. Our campers have many opportunities to try new things, bond over outdoor adventures, share stories at campfire, and break away from their screens. Camp means new and renewed friendships, inside jokes, and six days to build relationships that will last for many years to come. Men-O-Lan is a place where they can figure out who they are. Camp is a game-changer. And whether they know God or they’ve never even thought they’d ever care, they’ll leave with a better understanding of His love for them.
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 80 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.

We offer scholarship to those who need additional financial help. More information is available here. Look for the form during the application process to apply.
If you need more financial support, we encourage you to ask your church office if they support families to send their children to camp.
