For over 85 years, Camps Leelanau and Kohahna have offered quality camping programs that provide young Christian Scientists with an opportunity to learn about their true identity, shed limitations, and deepen their understanding of Christian Science. The Camps continue to operate on the core principles established by founders Maude and Skipper Beals in the 1920’s. Integrity, unselfishness, and a commitment to excellence are reaffirmed each year as components of a successful life. In the nurturing atmosphere at Leelanau and Kohahna, young people learn to value these principles in themselves and others, thus preparing themselves for leadership roles.
We invite you to participate in this mission. Your support is vital to a successful summer program. The prayerful, financial, and volunteer backing received helps to keep the Camps operating at the highest standard. Every gift to Camp brings blessings to young students of Christian Science, and they continue to share those blessings with others.
