A Personal Note to Parents & Youth Group Leaders
Updated on June 10, 2020
My name is Micheal Hickey, and I am the executive director of Our Lady of the Fields Camp & Retreat Center.
Thank you for your interest in learning more about our community!
We are Michigan’s newest Catholic summer camp and retreat center. We recently chose to delay our first season of summer camp until 2021, due to COVID-19. But now, as Michigan begins to re-open, we are prayerfully and carefully planning to host small retreat groups as early as July.
We do so in the strictest accordance with guidelines set by the State of Michigan, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the American Camp Association (ACA). We have also been in contact with larger organizations to make sure we are complying with best practices within the camping industry.
Your child’s health and safety is of utmost importance to us. Our administrative team is made up of parents, so we are keenly aware of the sacred responsibility you have entrusted to us.
We began Our Lady of the Fields Camp with the mission to help bring people closer to God- regardless of the challenges that are before us. Over the past few months, we have seen, first-hand, how difficult this has been on our children. As a result, our mission is clearer now than ever before. We pray that your family and your church will join us this summer as we all get back outside, feel the sun on our faces, and play in God’s glorious backyard.
If you have any questions about what we are doing this summer or how we are going to do it, please send us an email or give us a call. Our contact information is listed below.
We hope to see you this summer!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
