Set on 360 wooded acres and a mile of private Lake Michigan shoreline, Miniwanca is a breathtaking and inspiring setting for growth. Towering sand dunes and pines line our beach and a second, inland lake provides the perfect setting for swimming, sailing, and canoeing.
Miniwanca operates year round, with Community and School Programs (CSP) serving children from neighboring districts and distant cities. The National Leadership Conference (NLC) draws high school and college age youth for the chance to develop character, leadership skills, and new strength in a dynamic setting. Miniwanca Boys Camp and Girls Camp offer elementary through high school age campers the chance to discover and develop new strengths in 1, 2, 3 and 5 week overnight camp and trip programs.
Our days are simpler. We challenge often but have more fun. The outdoors is our home. We work together to create a community where individuals are respected, and where our values guide our actions. We gain confidence. We share. We have fun.
