This is a story of faith and love. It’s a story that should be told over and over again to all who come to Camp Arcadia so they may share in the rich spiritual heritage which the Christian fellowship at Camp Arcadia treasures.
The LCA is a non-profit corporation of Michigan and was organized in 1968 to own and operate Camp Arcadia. One of its first tasks was to purchase Camp Arcadia from the International Walther League. The families who comprised the LCA at that time had great faith and foresight, and with their gifts and loans launched an effort to perpetuate Camp Arcadia as a place for future Christian families to gain spiritual and physical renewal.
Since 1968 the LCA membership has grown to include over 830 individuals and families. These concerned Arcadians have contributed their money, a lot of enthusiasm, and much personal effort to maintain Camp Arcadia.
The association has an annual membership meeting at which time a Board of Directors is elected. This Board then plans sets the rates and sets policy relevant to the operation of the coming camp season.
Camp Arcadia has been generously blessed with over 100 acres of Michigan dunes country including Lake Michigan beach. It is the perfect setting for Arcadia’s style and philosophy of program which emphasizes a VACATION WITH GOD, WHERE THE FAMILY IS CENTRAL… not just your own family… the family of God in fellowship.
The interest and enthusiasm which Camp guests radiate regarding their Arcadia experience is contagious, and so over the past years the number of participants in the camp family has increased annually. We expect this trend to continue. As old and new Arcadians actively participate in the daily program of worship, Bible study and fellowship, lasting friendships are formed and exciting spiritual growth takes place.
Camp Arcadia is God’s place! People who come here are strengthened and renewed and joyfully return home to love and serve others. If you want the LCA to continue this ministry, then you should be an LCA member. We invite you to join this special organization. As a shareholder we know you will take a deeper personal interest in helping Camp Arcadia carry on its mission of “RE-CREATION”.
