Camp Arcadia is NOT a campsite – we are a resort and family style retreat center that hosts weeklong retreats between Memorial Day and the end of October. For more information on registering for a retreat, visit register.
We are a Christian camp with Lutheran roots – we profess that by God’s love we are saved through faith in Christ Jesus – not because of anything we have done, not by works, but as a gift of God, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:8-10). In response we value Christ as the foundation of all our being, activities, programs and opportunities to embody His love. Read more about this in our Mission, Vision and Values document.
No! While our teaching a programming will be centered around strong reformation theology, we welcome all as Christ welcomes us. Please know that our community, programming and entire ethos is centered around the Gospel of Christ Jesus.
Usually! You may stop by campus for a visit at any time except during our Teen Retreats and Fall Confirmation Retreats (for safety purposes). Follow the signs for our Office and one of our staff would be happy to tell you more about Camp. If you’d like to stay for the day to enjoy meals and activities, please contact the Office (231-889-4361) ahead of time to ensure that we have adequate resources to serve you!
During our Family Retreats, there is designated children’s programming each morning of the retreat for registered guests from 9:30-11:15am as a part of the Morning Youth Program. Children ages 0-2 can be cared for in the nursery, preschool-aged children can enjoy time in the Ark program, and students going into Kindergarten through High School break up into personalized age groups for Bible study, games and activities. Throughout the week, there are opportunities for children to explore independently and participate in group games, but parents retain supervision responsibilities outside of the Morning Youth Program.
