Enjoy the Summer!

Camp scholarships are provided to young people who income qualify and are in need of either a day camp or overnight experience. Some camps are local to the community, while others require transportation. Students that will be entering grades Kindergarten-5th in the Fall can participate in the day camp partnership with Independence Township Parks and Rec. Students grades 3 through 12 can choose an overnight camping experience.

Students can enjoy a variety of camping experiences which might include specialty camps from basketball clinics and music camps, to camps to improve math, language arts, science and computer skills, and even traditional camps where young people learn to interact while fishing, hiking and sitting by a campfire roasting marshmallows.  If you have a camp you are interested in sending your child to, please let us know and we will do what we can to help.

For any details and/or questions, please reach out to us at  or leave us a voicemail message at 248-623-4313 and we’ll get back to you.
