Waiting List Q&A (Details/Info)

We are a co-ed, 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 Lower Elementary Day Camp Weeks for rising 1st-4th graders, three overnight Junior Weeks for rising 4th-6th graders, three overnight Middle Schools Weeks for rising 7th-9th graders, and one overnight 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!

I will never forget how God used me and what He taught me through staff, kids, chapel, and Himself.

I can’t express how truly thankful I am to have gotten the chance to serve our Heavenly Father here.

I love that we strive to do everything to the glory of God.
