Michigan Christian Summer Camps

Overnight Camps
For Kids


Our mission is to Impact People With Jesus Christ, that's it!

Since 1946, Grace Adventures has been committed to impacting the younger generation so that they can grow to be disciples of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to see every child come to know Jesus, trust Him as their personal savior, and to tell others about Him.

More Than Just a Week Away

Our programs are purposefully designed to build off one another year-after-year, from introductory to leadership camps. Your child's week of camp is tailored to meet them at an age-appropriate level to develop Christ-like character on a personal, relational, and spiritual level.

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Campers grow personally by gaining new skills through activities, being stretched out of their comfort zone, and learning responsibility for themselves and the community they are a part of. Our high school camps shift focus to learning leadership development and the importance of service to others.

RELATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

From learning how to make new friends to developing deep, positive, and healthy relationships with others, campers grow in the soft skills of emotional and social intelligence. Once in high school, campers learn how to identify and foster leadership qualities in themselves and others for the betterment of their community.

SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

Learning about God and what the Bible says is only the beginning. Campers do a deep dive into the foundations of their faith, how to make their faith their own, Biblical manhood and womanhood, and finding their true identity in Christ rather than in the world that surrounds them.

Scholarships Available

Many families would love to send their child to camp at Grace Adventures but wonder how they could ever afford it. Grace understands that todays world is very uncertain and the cost of camp can be a real sacrifice for many families. It is the intention of Grace to never have to turn a camper away because of financial barriers.
