Camp Paradise offers quality teaching, focused one-on-one time with your child, and adventurous activities that can deepen your relationships and spiritual perspective. Bring your son or daughter to conquer the 50-foot climbing tower, wake up early to canoe along the Tahquamenon River, explore our hiking trails, learn to shoot at our archery/bb gun range, and enjoy the evening campfires. There are an abundance of fun camp activities to experience together.
Camp Paradise has no running water and limited electricity. There are hand pump wells, wood-burning water heaters, and Camp Paradise original bucket showers. Clean, comfortable cabins are outfitted with bunk beds and shelves for you and your child to have your own space among your cabin mates. The industrial kitchen and dining room are located in the Lodge, where three delicious home-cooked meals are served each day. Camp Paradise’s Pavillion serves as our camp store and our game room. While dads are experiencing solitude, kids can craft and learn in our Longhouse with their friends and leaders. Every morning, all of camp gathers together in our Chapel—the most beautiful building on the Tahquamenon River. It is a quarter-mile walk from our Lodge, the perfect place to worship, celebrate, and reflect.
Dads Camps are available for fathers to bring their son or daughter (ages 8–12). Come and experience an adventure that will give you a foundation for a growing relationship to last a lifetime.
