We will be sleeping in tents, and the kids seem really excited about it! There are more than 200 acres of woods to explore, a mile of incredible sand beach for swimming, an in-ground heated pool, basketball courts, badminton, and all kinds of other fun things to do. We will also have a cookout that night over open fires, and a Bible devotion under the stars later in the evening. We really think this is going to be a great night for the band. Then, on Tuesday we will spend part of the day at Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park (located within walking distance of the camp ground) where the kids can enjoy zip lines, a climbing wall, a walk through the tree tops on the Forest Canopy Bridge, or adventure to the top of the five-story Treetop Discovery Tower.
And this might be the coolest thing of all: the owners of the camp ground want Lutheran Vanguard to help them celebrate their 50th Anniversary with a parade march through the camp ground! This will be one of the most unique things the band has ever done, marching along the shores of a Great Lake under towering pines...and the kids we've talked to about it are very excited for this!
So, if you plan on traveling with the band to Traverse City and want to stay at the camp ground, you should make reservations soon as spots fill up very quickly. Use the information below for details on the grounds and how to book a site (make sure to mention that you're part of the Lutheran Vanguard group).
