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.
