MCC’s Junior Week is an overnight camp for rising 4th through 6th graders – structured and action-packed!

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. 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.

Skills Classes: Each camper will have two skill classes for the week, such as: 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 on Monday with their counselor after going through orientation explaining the classes.

Other activities throughout the week include: Bible Class, pool time, cabin v/s cabin games, skits by MCC team, campfires, paddle-boating, canteen, large group games in the evening and Water Game Day.

Arrival: Check in for Junior Weeks is 10:00-11:00 am in the gymnasium. (MCC is unable to check campers in early.)

Departure: Parents/guardians may pick up children in the gym Saturday morning at 9:30 am.

Camp Store: MCC’s store will be open at drop off and pick up as well as daily during free time.

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