Summer Family Camps

Situated on the beautiful shores of Lake Huron’s Prentiss Bay, Cedar Bay Camp and Retreat Center offers ten summer family camps – five at our Old Mill Point site and five, across the bay, at our Mariner’s Cove site. Summer Camps at Cedar Bay have been a much-appreciated retreat for families, couples and single adults from around the country for over 30 years.

Family Camps at Cedar Bay

are designed to provide opportunities for families to be refreshed physically, spiritually, and relationally. Our mission-minded staff use hospitality, freedom from distractions, and purposeful programming to help guests come away, meet God, and be renewed by His Spirit and His Word.

Each week of Family Camp runs from Saturday to Friday and features an engaging Biblical teacher, structured worship experiences, creative children’s programming, unprogrammed time for rest and building relationships, unique recreation opportunities and more.

Cedar Bay is Located

on the shores of Lake Huron, providing guests with plenty of opportunities for kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding and fishing. Developed trails, throughout Cedar Bay’s 500+ acres, will make exploring God’s creation accessible for families throughout their stay. Relaxing in a lounge chair by the shore is a nice change of pace for those looking to unwind from the hustle and bustle of life.
