Michigan Summer Camp New Frontiers 6 to 9 grades

Faith Can Grow at Summer Camp

Where New Adventures Nurture Faith

Welcome to Michigan’s SpringHill New Frontier’s Christian Camp where new adventures nurture faith!

At SpringHill New Frontiers Christian summer camp, we seek to strengthen your child’s connection with God through fun. We encourage them to become a follower of Christ, to find Christ-like solutions to challenges, and to look to God for help. As they practice Christian principles they naturally identify with and become more like Jesus.

Last summer at SpringHill:

Jacob faced his fears of conquering the climbing wall and then encouraged others to tackle the wall as well?

Kate made a difference by stepping out of her comfort zone to help a fellow camper.

Webster leaned on cabinmates to find creative solutions during cabin competitions.

Rebecca became convicted by the Holy Spirit during Club and committed to following Christ.

What personal and spiritual growth will your child experience this year at church camp?

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

ALL THE FUN!

Where They Play!

At SpringHill, joy and faith intertwine. Adventures bring laughter, skill-building, and lessons in courage, kindness, and resilience through counselor-directed activities.

During their week at overnight camp, they overcome challenges, explore interests, gain skills, and learn to look for God in everyday events. Our schedule fosters friendships, encourages acts of compassion, and teaches by example. These new experiences give them confidence and increase their resilience while navigating middle school.

Each day, campers typically participate in three exciting activities:

HIGH ADVENTURE!

  • Conquer New Frontiers Rock Wall.
  • Fly across the New Frontiers Zipline.
  • Fearlessly face the Solo Challenge.
  • Master the High Ropes Course

WATER ACTIVITIES!

  • Defy the Water Ropes and Gusher.
  • Bounce on the New Frontier Blob.
  • Plunge down the 3rd longest Waterslide in Michigan.
  • Explore the Lake on SUPs.

CRAFTS & TARGET SPORTS!

  • Create tie-dye shirts, candles, soap, or paracords.
  • Join a friendly battle of Laser Tag
  • Challenge friends to a game of Paintball.
  • Perfect their aim in Axe Throwing.

LODGING

Where They Sleep!

Middle school years are a time of change and increased self-awareness. To help campers make friends, we provide larger cabins, sleeping up to 14 people. Each cabin has electricity, AC, and shared bathhouses. Boys and girls sleep separately at either Meadowlands or Forest Ridge Cabins. ​​Some weeks, they might even sleep in an airplane!

Meadowlands 
8 Cabins sleep up to 14 campers and 2 counselors each.

Forest Ridge
8 Cabins sleep up to 14 campers and 2 counselors each.

The daily schedule gives cabinmates time to connect with counselors and each other as a fundamental part of the camp experience. During their free time, they can play games, socialize, or enjoy some alone time.
