“The Machia Wilderness Camp exists for the sake of helping youth understand and participate in sustaining the planet for life, recreation, and God’s glory. We are dedicated to teaching youth ways of creating a sustainable relationship between mankind and nature revitalizing our roles as stewards of the earth.

We focus our efforts toward fostering a philosophy of living that carries beyond the camp into everyday life; i.e. living in harmony with our environment. We work toward developing an apprentice type program for campers we identify as future leaders desiring to share knowledge and skills, further honing the skills needed to successfully use natural resources responsibly.”

This year the camp will run July 9 – 14 from 8:30am – 4:00pm each day.
