With 500 acres and six miles of beautiful Lake Huron shoreline, Cedar Campus provides many opportunities for recreation- including kayaking, swimming, hiking, and more.  Located in the wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and only 45 min from the Mackinac Bridge, Cedar Campus is a special place not only for its beauty, but also because tens of thousands of students and families have met God and have seen their lives changed during their time here.

At Cedar Campus, accommodations range from rustic (camping sites & small cabins with a nearby wash house) to resort-style (with kitchen & bath facilities) and from single-family units to multi-room lodges. At the time of registration, participants are directed to a website to browse and choose a housing option. All meals are included in the costs and are eaten as a community in Willoughby Lodge. Recreation activities, cleaning fees, children’s activities, and more are also included in the Program & Housing costs. Wi-Fi is available on campus and at a local library within Cedarville.
