Youth Conference

2016 Youth Conference
Can I Make a Difference?

Esther 4:14: “…and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

You are invited to the 24th annual Youth Camp of the HRC. The Lord willing, camp this year will be from Tuesday July 5 to Friday July 8, 2016. The purpose of the camp is to provide those entering into 10th grade through age 25 with an opportunity for fellowship and spiritual instruction.

Please join us for a rewarding and fun filled week at beautiful Camp Michawana in Hastings, MI.



All campers should bring a Bible, sleeping bag, pillow, flashlight, and bug repellent. You may wish to have an umbrella, fitted sheet, camera or additional reading material as well. A book table will also be set up, and campers may wish to bring money (US funds) to purchase books, or for special activities.

Camp Michawana offers a wide variety of activities. At the lake you may swim, fish, canoe, or kayak. The athletic field is perfect for soccer, football, or ultimate Frisbee. Volleyball courts are also available. Inside, ping pong tables will be set up. Bring along whatever you might wish to use for these activities.



The conference rules are outlined on the back of the application form and you are asked to obey these guidelines out of love. They are intended to provide Christian direction to your behavior and its motives. If followed, they will enrich the camp environment and allow for the greatest possible growth among us. Thank you for your cooperation.
