Summer Camps

The Camps are located 32 miles beyond Traverse City in Northwest lower Michigan. If you have never been to Leelanau County, you will love our clear blue lakes, fragrant pine forests, and rolling cherry orchard hills.

The camp property rests on Pyramid Point, a 300 foot bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. It is surrounded to the north, south and east by park land known as the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

Our western boundary includes 2,500 feet of beach frontage on Lake Michigan. From here, visitors can see the southernmost islands of the Lake Michigan archipelago, the North Manitou shoals lighthouse and shipping passage, and unforgettable sunsets over the water.

Within walking distance of Camp grounds are dozens of trails maintained by the National Park Service. Students hike daily through meadow, field, forest and/or beaver pond habitats. Frequently, they find evidence of local wildlife including whitetail deer, porcupine, fox, hawk and coyote. National Park Service Headquarters and extensive sand dune trails are just 10-15 miles away in nearby Empire and Glen Haven.

Camp Leelanau for Boys and Camp Kohahna for Girls offer comprehensive summer camping programs for young people enrolled in the Sunday Schools of Christian Science branch churches. Our programs are designed to cultivate individual character through participation in a wide variety of activities. Skill levels range from beginner to advanced. Campers and counselors work individually and collectively to demonstrate the principles of Christian Science as presented in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
