Our Middle School programs are overnight camps for rising 7th-9th graders.

Our overnight Middle School program includes activities that build proper self-esteem and peer interaction based on Biblical principles. We strive to offer  activities that challenge middle school students to  “bump their comfort zone.”

Skills Classes: Campers will choose a Skills Class Track which includes one skills class per day. Throughout the week, they will experience four, different classes. Some skills classes the campers may choose from include: outdoor cooking, outdoor survival, leather craft, T-shirt crafts, riflery, archery, photography, journalism, high ropes, ax throwing, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and more!

Campers will have the opportunity to embrace truths learned in personal quiet times, morning and evening chapels, and cabin devotions. Our well-trained staff serve as great role models, while providing a physically and emotionally safe and positive camp experience.

Arrival: Check in is Monday morning between 10:00 and 11:00 am. (MCC is unable to check campers in early.)

Departure: Parents/guardians may pick up campers Saturday morning at 9:30 am.

Camp Store: MCC’s store will be open at certain times throughout the camp week and at arrival and departure times.
