July 10 - 12, 2019
Clear Lake Education Center
8025 N. Clear Lake Rd., Manistique, MI 49854

4-H camp takes place at Clear Lake Education Center (8025N Clear Lake Rd. in Manistique, MI 49854) located on beautiful Clear Lake, nestled in a lush forest on M-94 just South of Shingleton, MI. There is a field where campers go to play games and team sports. Clear Lake also offers a scenic backdrop for canoeing as well as a beach for swimming.

4-H camp offers a chance for each camper to make new friendships and learn new skills. Every activity is well supervised and well planned. There is a full-time nurse on staff, keeping close check on the health needs of all the campers.

Campers are directed and supervised at all times by adult counselors who are assisted by teen junior counselors. Exploring and learning about the great outdoors are an important part of this program, with an emphasis on respecting each other and our environment. Building a healthier body, mind and spirit for campers is key in programming.

Activities include: low ropes/team building exercises, canoeing, swimming, outdoor field sport recreation, water and land challenges, arts and crafts, nature walks, astronomy, campfires, singing, drama skits, and much more!

Dining Hall
Well balanced, tasty meals and snacks are prepared and served by our fabulous cooks.

Living Groups
The cabins are well constructed and comfortable. The boys’ cabins are separated from the girls’ cabins- boys on the west side of camp and girls on the east side. One adult counselor and at least one junior counselor will be housed in each cabin with the youth so they are available if the campers need anything at any time.
