Dear Campers & Parents:
It is with great sadness that we share with you the decision to cancel all our summer camps for the 2020 season.

We do intend to operate our camping program next summer (2021) and we are already planning for it.

FAMILY/GROUP RENTALS are available July 1 thru summer. See FACILITIES RENTAL page for details.

Camp Crystal for Children, Youth, Families & Adults

The 100 year plus tradition continues at Crystal Conference Center where all children, youth, families, and adults from all traditions are welcome to be part of one of our summer camp programs. Camp Crystal camps are part of the summer ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Michigan. We assure you that all who participate will be welcome as we focus on asking the BIG questions about God’s goodness and greatness.

2020 Camp Crystal Theme: “This is our Prayer”

Some of us speak our thoughts and feelings to God, while others are quiet, settling their hearts to make space for God. Some pray through music, art, or movement, others pray out loud, while still others’ prayers are whispers of the soul. Whether we fold our hands and bow our heads, or raise our hands up and look to the sky, God is longing to connect with us. God hears our prayers. In this new outdoor ministry resource, campers will explore the shared longings of the human heart and all the different ways Christians have prayed throughout history.

Camp Scholarships

Want to go to camp, but it doesn’t quite fit in the budget this summer? We have scholarships for that! Everyone should have the opportunity to experience Camp Crystal.

Camp scholarships are an important part of the Christian Education budgets of many congregations.  They stimulate greater camp participation and make Camp Crystal affordable for those who may otherwise not be able to attend.  We encourage you to talk with your church to find out if they offer scholarships and sign up today! 

In addition to church scholarships, there are scholarships available from the Fuller Camp Scholarship Fund, available for ANY child or youth who needs assistance to attend Crystal.

For more information, or to request scholarship assistance, contact Rev. Timothy Murtaugh,
