Michindoh Q&A Meeting

Do you or your child have questions about Camp Michindoh?  If so, this meeting is just for you!  We will spend an hour looking at pictures and videos of the camp experience and taking a peek at what a typical camp day consists of in hopes to alleviate any fears that you or your child may have toward camp. We will end our time together with Q&A.  Please join Pastor Shandra on Sunday, April 23rd at 11am in the Walkin Western Classroom.  This meeting is for parents and children to attend.


Early bird registration deadline is April 30th!  Once you arrive at the Camp Michindoh page, you will need to click on Register for Camp and create an account to register.  Once the registration asks you to enter a GHR ID, use “ECC2017.”  This code will automatically give you the 15% early bird discount.  A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to register for camp.  Any remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to the camp dates. There are no refunds for cancellations within 10 days prior to the camp start date. 


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 offer your family 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 that you register from your home.  In order to receive this scholarship, please click this link to apply…


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.

2. Request assistance by completing this form...

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.


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!

True Nature

Dennis Miller

Today we start a new series from Luke 13 and 14, and learn that the parables of Jesus teach us much about the nature of God.  Messages in this series cover many aspects of God's nature ranging from His patience to His expectations.

Just Like A Mom

Dennis Miller

This sermon looks at a very special mom.  This woman was willing to risk everything for the sake of her daughter, which is likely true of most moms. Today we take a moment to remember the beauty of motherhood.

This study of Luke 11 reminders us how mature believers live.  We will focus on Jesus’ warnings and encouragements as incentives for mature discipleship - we who follow Jesus may expect to be persecuted for our belief in Him.
