Michindoh offers 4 weeks of Explorer Camp. Each week is designed for campers to have a great time and make new friends. Whether they are new to the adventures of camp or seasoned veterans who have been to camp before, Explorer Camp promises new and exciting experiences that they are sure to enjoy.
Supported by our trained staff, campers are given the opportunity to develop new skills as they engage in everything that camp has to offer. Campers can choose to attend one week or all four weeks because we all know there is no such thing as too much camp. All weeks are centered on biblical teaching that is aimed at encouraging kids to dive deeper into what it means practically to be a follower of Christ.
Explorer Camp 1
June 19th -24th
It has long been rumored that there is a massive abandoned Gold Mine lost in the wilderness of Michindoh. This has attracted a few nutty explorers over the years but none have been nuttier than the Dawson Brothers. Born with shovels in their hand, Sid and Jared have been all over the globe hunting for Gold - quite unsuccessfully I may add. However, maybe their luck will change at Michindoh? Come join in the search as the Dawson Brothers turn Michindoh on its head in their biggest adventure yet!
Explorer Camp 2
June 26th - July 1st
It has been some time since the Sasquatch has been spotted at Michindoh but rumors are, he has returned. Deep in the woods where only the bravest adventurers explore, come tales of a hairy beast walking around on two legs. From all the way down-under, Zoologist and professional Sasquatch expert Kai Vinson has come to investigate these rumors. The only question is, will Kai Vinson find the Sasquatch or will the Sasquatch find him? Come join Kai Vision in his exciting quest to document Sasquatch

Sabotage Among Us
Something strange is going on at Michindoh. All the amazing plans we have - well they are not quite going according to plan. The gold for Gold Rush is missing, the buddy sheets are all out of order, the teepees have been teepeed and something has gone terribly wrong with Darren’s hair. Is it possible that there is a saboteur among us? Join us for a week of adventure and mystery as we try to figure out who is the cause of all this mayhem!
CHAPEL: We begin every morning together learning about God and the Bible. Designed specifically for each age group, our chapel sessions are tailored to the interests and needs of our campers. It is our goal to provide content that is not just meaningful but also offers exciting avenues for youth engagement.
ACTIVITY 1 & 2: At Michindoh, we have a lot of adventurous and traditional activities to offer. There is no way to do everything in a single week. For this reason, we allow each camper to choose which activities they want to do. A sample of our many activities can be found below.
CAMP GAME: Each day has a unique game or challenge that is designed to bond campers together as a cabin. Not only do these activities provide many laughs and good times, but they also work to help develop practical skills allowing for better teamwork.
WATERFRONT: Two hours of free time at our amazing waterfront. Swimming, sliding down the water slide, playing on our inflatable water park, Gaga ball, 9 square, enjoying tasty treats from our snack shack are just a few of the many options campers can enjoy. Ultimately the choice is yours!
EVENING PROGRAM: Our evening program is always a little different. From crazy camp-wide games to silly campfires, we do it all. Each night includes a closing chapel that helps wrap the entire day together.
