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, newsletter writing, high ropes, axe throwing, sling shots, canoeing, model rocketry, 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.

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

Payments:  A non-refundable, non-transferable deposit of $75 is required to reserve your child’s space in a camp week. The remaining camp fees are due two months before your camp week begins. If you are unable to pay your balance two months prior to camp, please contact the registrar to request a payment extension.

Refunds/Transfer Policy: Please check your school, sports, and personal calendar before registering for a camp week. Refunds will not be given to those who register for a camp week and then cancel due to a schedule conflict. If the reservation is canceled more than two months prior to the camp week, all fees paid other than the $75 deposit will be refunded.  If the reservation is cancelled less than two months, but more than one month before the camp week, 50% of the fees paid will be refunded, less the $75 deposit. If the camp week is canceled less than one month prior to the camp week, no refund will be given. Some exceptions may be made if there is a medical emergency or a death in the immediate family.  (Verification may be required before a refund is processed.) Final payments not made within one month of the start date will be assessed a $25 late fee and/or may result in forfeiting the camper’s space.  Transfers from one week to another are allowed as long as space is available. A $25 Transfer Fee will be assessed. Camper cancelation insurance now available. See details in online registration portal.
