REDEEMER SUMMER KAMP
KAMP 2020: AUGUST 1-7, 2020
KAMP 2020: COVID -19 UPDATE (June 22, 2020)
Kamp is on! We are excited to announce that Kamp 2020 will be happening! Thanks for your patience and prayers as we have gone through this process. We have felt all the emotions through the last few weeks as it seems our chances for having Kamp were changing daily!
We will have limited capacity in the cabins – so our overall camp size will be reduced. As of today we are putting a temporary hold on new registrations. If you are interested in Kamp you can sign up and be put on the wait list. Once we finalize our staffing and cabins we will determine how many more beds we might have.

As required by the State of Michigan we will be putting out a Covid-19 response plan. This will be emailed to our staff and Kamp families on or shortly after July 1, 2020. This will outline the steps we will take at Kamp this year to mitigate risk.
Important change to note: we will not be busing kids back to Birmingham on August 7, 2020. All campers must be picked up from Camp Michawana on Friday. We will release more specific check-in and check-out procedures in the next two weeks.
KAMP 2020: COVID-19 UPDATE (May 3, 2020)
As of today we are planning for Kamp to proceed as normal this summer. The situation is fluid and we do not know what things will look like in Michigan in June or July. But we remain hopeful that we will be able to gather together safely this August for Kamp.
Please keep Redeemer Summer Kamp and all Kamp’s decision makers in your prayers as we navigate these uncharted waters. We cannot imagine a year without Kamp but we always have the safety and health of our campers and Kamp families in mind. We will keep this page updated as well as send out updates to registered families as the situation develops.
We know you have questions about the possibility of Kamp being cancelled this year. Please review these COVID-19 Kamp 2020 FAQs we put together.
Due to the current situation we have decided to temporarily suspend the collection of any payments. You may register your camper without paying anything at this time. We will have further updates coming in June as to when we will hopefully resume payments. Please visit our registration page for more information.

Redeemer Summer Kamp is a week long sleep away camp for kids entering 3rd – 9th grade. We rent a beautiful camp facility in western Michigan each year where Campers spend a week in a rustic outdoors setting enjoying typical camping activities such as crafts, boating, fishing, hayrides, games, campfires, etc. But, our program is combined with Bible study, worship and singing which all takes place in a safe Christian environment. click here to read more about our Kamp mission, camp facilities and staff

He has been on Kamp staff for 20 years and 2020 will be his 8th year as Director. He is an active member at Redeemer and a current member of the Redeemer Board of Elders. Our Administrative Director, Laura McDonald, is also a life long Redeemer member, and camper.

All our Kamp Counselors and Counselors in Training are active high school and college members/friends of Redeemer and are vetted and hired by a board of lay church members who all are former campers and staff members of Redeemer Summer Kamp.

Redeemer Summer Kamp has been operating continuously for 52 years. Kamp is one of our most successful and exciting programs here at Redeemer in terms of both Christian Education and Evangelism. In recent years, nearly half the campers are NOT members of Redeemer. We welcome all children of Redeemer to join us at Kamp. Friends are always welcome. Kamp truly is a life changing experience for those that join us – your children will have an amazing week, making new Kamp friends and developing a stronger relationship with Christ Jesus.
