Christian Science Military Weekend is held ever other year over Labor Day Weekend for all U.S. military personnel. Active duty, reserve, and retired military men and women who practice Christian Science, and Christian Scientists whose spouses are in the military, are all invited. Spouses and family members who aren’t Christian Scientists are welcome to attend.
Surrounded by Michigan’s Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Military Weekend at Camps Leelanau and Kohahna provides a gorgeous setting filled with fun activities, excellent food, and time to get to know other military men and women!
The pure, refreshing beauty of northern Michigan ‘s Pyramid Point provides the ideal setting for a long weekend filled with activities, challenges, relaxation and peace.
Relax in spacious cabins lining breezy bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan. Enjoy morning and evening inspirational meetings and a Sunday church service for the whole family. This is a long weekend packed with fun, healing, beauty, and new adventures!

Christian Science Military Weekend Fruitage
“It is hard to put to words the benefits gained by gathering service members and their families for a group meeting. The depth of sharing was genuine and heartfelt. The setting of Camp made the weekend relaxing, active and rejuvenating. Allowing & encouraging each to share their experience as a Christian Scientist was most valuable and we are grateful.”
“Every year is different and every year it’s just what was needed. This time of communion with our dear colleagues is priceless and could not happen otherwise!”
“Your support has done much to bless so many this weekend. Our military members have received a cup of cold water in Christ’s name.”
