We are a summer youth camp offering unique, challenging programming for rising 1st graders through rising college freshmen, both for individuals and youth coming as a group.
We offer two Day Camp Weeks for rising 1st-4th graders, three Junior Weeks for rising 4th-6th graders, three Middle Schools Weeks for rising 7th-9th graders, and one Teen Week for rising 10th through rising college freshmen. At MCC, we make every effort to make sure each camper has a safe and positive experience. MCC's Summer Camp Program is designed to fit the needs and interests of each particular age group. Days are packed full of hands-on interactive games and challenges which build character in a fun and exciting setting. The key to our program is integrating Christ-like values and character into a balance of spiritual instruction, fun & games, challenges, and quiet times of reflection and introspection.
At MCC, we believe every experience that the camper has is part of their learning process. The large group, speaker-led chapel is an important part of the camp experience, but by no means the only place we anticipate spiritual growth to take place. The speakers at Merriwood are energetic and challenging. They have a genuine concern and commitment to today's youth. The speakers challenge young people to make God's Word real in their lives, in a clear and understandable way. The camper then has the opportunity to live out the Christian life while learning new skills and interacting in cabin life. We hope you'll join us for a great time this summer!
We do not have certified nursing staff. We are not a special needs camp, nor are we able to staff specifically for special needs. Although we try to accommodate as many campers as possible, we also have to look at each unique situation and make a decision in the best interest of the individual, the other campers as whole, and our staff's abilities.
If your child has special social, emotional, medical, or behavioral, psychological needs, or out of the ordinary physical needs, or is not mainstreamed in a regular school classroom, please call the camp so we can complete an exceptional needs screening form before registering for a camp week.
Special needs include (but are not limited to) seizures, anxiety or panic attacks, depression, Diabetes, Autism Spectrum, gluten-free diet, life-threatening allergies, Sensory Processing Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, suicidal or homicidal, criminal acts, etc.
