Due to the Corona Virus outbreak and the government mandates to limit gatherings, we are changing our Summer 2020 Camp Schedule. Our new dates are as followed: July 5-10 is our first teen camp (Jr and Sr High) Little Friends camp is July 12-15. Adventure Camp is July 19-22. Our Second Teen Camp (Jr and Sr High) is July 26-31. We will also be offering Family Retreats in June. We have cabins and a few lodges available in June and we would love to have your family come up and enjoy Quaker Haven together. Call our office at 574-834-4193 to check availability. We have produced a list of safety guidelines for before, during and after camp. Click HERE to view and/or download those guidelines. After reading those, you can print out and sign the waiver HERE. (We will have copies of these waivers at registration if you cannot print them yourself.)
We never want money to get in the way of a kid encountering Christ. With that being said, if you need scholarship money to help pay for you to come to camp, fill out this form below and send it to Pat Byers.

What if I need Special Arrangements for my camper?
Once registered and on-site, campers may not leave camp for any reason unless there is an emergency or arrangements have been made with the IYM Assistant Superintendent or WYM CE Director prior to the beginning of camp. Campers who drive to camp may not use their vehicles for any reason during the camp week.
What should I bring to summer camp?
A Bible & Pen
Weather appropriate clothing, Sports clothing
Bug Repellant, Sun Screen
Jacket or Sweatshirt (it can get cool near the lake)
2 pairs of shoes
Swimsuit, Towels (bath & beach)
Washcloth, Soap, Toothpaste, Toothbrush
Pillow, Sleeping Bag, Bed Roll, or Sheets & Blanket.
We also suggest: Beach shoes, Camera, a small amount of spending money for crafts and/or canteen.
It is also a good idea to have at least 2 sets of clothing that campers can get messy in for some of the games we may play.
The camp picture and camp video links are included in the registration cost.
What should I NOT bring to camp?
Radios, CD/MP3 players, any type of expensive electronic items
We understand that students use cell phones for purposes other than just talking on the phone, but they can become very disruptive to our program.
One of the goals of the camping program at Quaker Haven is to give young people a break from their usual element in order for them to hear from the Holy Spirit. We ask that if students have phones, we do not see them through the course of our programming.
We reserve the right to confiscate them, and mail them home if they become a problem. Keep in mind that we cannot be responsible for any lost, stolen broken items.
