General Details


Camp Michindoh is located at 4545 E. Bacon Road Hillsdale, MI.  Michindoh is on the corner of MICHigan, INDiana, and OHio; thus the name MICH-IND-OH!  This is approximately a 2-hour drive one way.

Multiple Child Scholarships

If you are sending more than one child to camp from your home, we have the opportunity to bless families with a discount due to the generosity of other ECC members. After a full payment for one child, ECC will scholarship $50 toward each additional child living in the same home that you register. This scholarship will automatically be applied during the registration process.

Financial Need Scholarships

At ECC, we value the opportunity to provide Christian camp for the children of our community. It is our intention that no child be deprived of attending camp and hearing the Gospel.  While we do our part as a church family, we also expect that families will do what they can to make this life-changing experience possible for their children. If you find yourself in need of assistance, please follow these steps:

1. Determine what your specific need is.  In most cases, families are able to pay for at least part of the camping experience.


3. An approval will be made within one week of the application. 

4. Register your child and the church will cover the balance that you were approved for with the scholarship code that will be sent to you via email.

Housing and Meals

Camp Michindoh is known for their all-you-can-eat delicious buffets!  Housing will take place at the Harmony Springs Western Village.  The children will enjoy sleeping in either a teepee or western miner tent with bunk beds that have a comfortable mattress, electric lighting and fans to keep cool.  These units are spacious and provide the fun theme of a western village but with the comfort of a cabin. 

Medication & Allergies

If your child takes regular medications, there is a full-time trained nurse on staff that will administer all needed medications.  If your child has any food allergies that we need to be aware of, please let Pastor Shandra know and the camp will be happy to accommodate any and all needs.

Michindoh Staff

Camp Michindoh is owned by Spring Arbor University which allows a partnership with the college students that attend the university.  Most of the counselors are college-aged students that are seeking ministry.  Their youthful energy and enthusiasm partnered with their heart for the Lord is a perfect match for the summer Michindoh staff.  Pastor Shandra also stays at camp the entire week with the children to build relationships and be there as needed for all the ECC campers!
