Mid-states Camping offers faith and fun

The camping ministry in the Mid-states—for Moravian congregations in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois—is unique from all the other Moravian camps in that each one is held at a different location. The goal of MSYMC is to ensure that the youth and young adults of the Mid-States Moravian churches (which include Ohio, lower Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois) are able to participate in interchurch activities and further their relationships with Christ. We strive to provide appropriate, safe and challenging programs for participants of all ages.

We have two sites for our younger campers. Illiana is held at Bedford Christian Camp in Bedford, Ind., centrally located for the two churches that attend: Hope (Ind.) and West Salem (Ill.) The other young camp is Camp Bethany, near Lakeville, Ohio for campers from the Ohio and Michigan churches.

Tar Hollow, our longest running camp, is for grade 7 through post high youth held at Tar Hollow State Park in Laurelville, OH. This camp is for youth from the four mid-states states.

More information about this year’s camps, along with registration materials, are available at midstatesmoraviancamps.webs.com.

A star shall come out of Jacob, and a scepter shall rise out of Israel. Numbers 24:17

Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Loving God, your care for us is evident in all you do! You made your love for us known in the coming of Immanuel. Grateful for life lived in relationship with you, we accept your invitation to cast all our anxieties on you. Amen.
