Mini Camp

Mini Camp allows adults to create their own custom summer camp experience that’s as active or relaxing as you would like. We’ve got lots of activities to choose from, so every day you can do something different! You can hone your horsemanship skills the whole time, or you can ride in the morning, go for a bike ride in the afternoon, and try something new the next day. The choice is yours!

“[We] had a great time participating in so many activities offered in the loving, supportive atmosphere of a Christian Science community. We hiked, biked, rode horses, peaked Huron and loved the flag ceremonies each day…. It was great to reconnect with camp.”
