Providing an environment for
making Christ-like disciples.
During the 1922 Assembly for the Michigan District Church of the
Nazarene it was decided that the church was in need of a place to hold
their camp meetings. A Camp Meeting Committee was formed to find a suitable site for the district. During
the 1926 District Assembly held in Flint an outpouring of the spirit
led the committee to go inspect a piece of property for sale near a
little town called Vicksburg. The men left the meeting that night and reported back to the assembly the next day. The assembly voted to buy the piece of property that we call Indian Lake Nazarene Camp today.
Within a year a Tabernacle was built that held a thousand people and by
the next summer it was full of people. The children loved the summers
at the Lake and the parents enjoyed the holiness preaching. Indian Lake
Nazarene Camp quickly became a favorite destination for many families
who would spend two weeks during the summer living in tents.
As time progressed so did the campgrounds. More property was bought and added over the years. Cabins
took the place of tents, asphalt replaced the dusty roads, the dining
hall replaced the hours of mom cooking throughout the week, and modern
utilities made life a little easier for those staying at the campground. While the campground may look a little different from when it was purchased in 1926, there is one thing that has not changed. Indian Lake Nazarene Camp provides a place where we can live reconciled with God and each other. Children and youth leave our camps changed and renewed by the Holy Spirit. Revivals and Camp Meetings are transforming lives through holiness teaching and preaching every year. Families come to camp and reconnect with God and each other.
Our Goal is to provide a place where we can live reconciled with God and each other. We offer hotel rooms, cabins and dorms for rent that are perfect for any size of family or group. If you have an RV, you are welcome to rent space for a few days or weeks to enjoy our grounds. We also have properties to sell for year round living. We offer many activities that allow families to draw away from the hustle and bustle of electronic life. Although, if you still need wifi, we have that, too.
