Yes, there will be childcare during the main sessions throughout the weekend. The childcare rooms are in the Family Life Center. We have 3 rooms (Nursery, PreK, Elementary) with children already assigned. When families arrive to the Family Life Center, the rosters will be on the doors so families will know where to go. Michele will also be there to direct them.


Ryan Outland will oversee the Jr. and Sr. High kids. He’ll meet them in the Family Life Center as well. He’ll be doing activities with them around the camp.


Childcare is available on Friday night 8:30pm–9:30pm and also on Saturday/Sunday during the main sessions.


Michele.Forrider is heading up childcare so feel free to contact her with questions at

Bring all your usual daily needs—toiletries, hair dryer, etc. (Remember, we’re staying in hotel-type rooms, so sheets/blankets/towels are provided.). They DO NOT provide shampoo. If the weather is good you’ll want to bring stuff for the beach. Think beach towels, toys to play with in the sand, and plenty of sunscreen. And whatever you do, don’t forget your Bible.

Dress is casual—jeans and shorts are fine. Wear comfy shoes that are appropriate for walking if you have the desire to do so.  You will want to bring clothes for the beach (remember to bring your beach towel).

Oh, boy, is there free time! We’ve set aside 1:00pm–5:30pm Saturday for that purpose, and there are lots of options. Maranatha has a gym (with basketball hoops, fitness room), game room, and more. There’s gorgeous scenery to walk through, beaches to explore, and several area attractions.

Dinner on Friday night is up to you. There will be snacks at the opening session.


All meals from Saturday breakfast through Sunday breakfast will be in Maranatha’s Cafeteria. You’ll be happy to learn that they do have highchairs.


Maranatha works hard to accommodate food allergies and special requests. Please feel free to contact the kitchen at Maranatha directly at 231-798-2161 (ask for food department). Let them know you are with the Moody Church group.

Last name A-M bring a healthy snack,
Last name N-Z bring the good snacks (good = loaded with calories!!!)

When in doubt about what snacks to bring consider if Pastor Mark would eat it 🙂
