MCC’s Junior Week is being offered both as an overnight camp, as well as a day camp (new for 2021)  for rising 4th through 6th graders – structured and action-packed!


This summer, for the first time, we are thrilled to be adding a day option for Junior Week camps (for our 1st and 2nd Junior Weeks only).  The Junior Day Camper will experience all the day activities for this age-group, yet not spend the night. Day cohorts will move through camp separately from the overnight groups yet experience the same activities throughout the day hours.

Arrival: 8:30-8:45 am Monday through Friday

Departure: 5:15-5:30 pm Monday through Friday

Cost: $295/week (which includes all the activities listed below)

Activities include: team building activities (cabin unity time), morning snack, chapel, skills class options (see listing above, one per day), cabin devotion time, recreation games (like gaga, field games, 9 Square in the air), paddle boats, gym games (basketball, carpet ball, ping pong, foos ball), climbing wall, swimming, water game day (including BLOB, water trampoline, and water obstacle course), afternoon canteen time, and plenty of time for handwashing and hand sanitizing 🙂

1st Junior Week – June 14-18, 2021
2nd Junior Week – July 12-16, 2021
* Day Option not Available 3rd Junior Week.

Cohort and Buddy Requests: Those signing up for the Junior Day Camp will be in different cohorts than the ones signing up for the Junior Overnight Camp. For this reason, please make sure any buddy requests you choose are attending the same program you are (either day or overnight).


From the time the Junior camper arrives on Monday morning until they depart on Saturday, they will experience a week like never before. Our commitment to small groups allows counselors to get to know their campers individually.  Dedicated counselors will lead their cabins in various challenging and rewarding activities that will help instill teamwork, cooperation, and group appreciation. Overnight campers will stay in our brick cabin buildings, which are equipped with a window air conditioning unit. Each cabin will have up to 10 campers plus the college-aged counselor.

Activities campers will experience throughout the week: flag raising, silly morning exercises, personal quiet time, team building activities, Bible Class, pool time, cabin v/s cabin recreation games (kick ball variations, gaga, soccer arena games, playground), 48 foot climbing wall, skits performed by MCC team, campfires, paddle-boating, swim competition, canteen, large group game (with cohorts) in the evening and Water Game Day (water trampoline, BLOB, water obstacle course).

Skills Classes: Campers will choose skills classes daily that allow them to remain in cohorts throughout the week and will get to do four skills (different days). Some of the skills classes include: fishing, riflery, archery, canoeing, model rocketry, outdoor cooking, outdoor survival, various crafts, box car making & racing, acting, sling shots, basketball, soccer, volleyball and more.  Campers will sign up for skills classes once they are onsite.

Arrival: Check in for Overnight Junior Weeks is 10:00-11:00 am (staggered drive through drop off in 2021). No early arrivals please.

Departure: Parents/guardians may pick up children Saturday morning at 9:30 am. Pick up will be drive-through for 2021 summer.

Camp Store and Canteen: MCC’s store will be open during the week for campers to visit. MCC’s canteen will be open once in the afternoon and once in the evening.

As a Junior/Middle School camper, some of my most powerful experiences with God happened at Merriwood.
