Message from the Executive Director

It’s a wrap!  Summer camp 2022 is in the rearview mirror and we’re looking forward to what’s next.  But, first…

A special shout-out to MHKC’s summer staff!  Their individual and collective commitment to making camp a special and unforgettable experience for campers and families is inspiring.  It is with much gratitude that we acknowledge their efforts this summer!

So, what’s next?  Our intrepid Programs team will reflect on all elements of the 2022 camp experience while ramping up the planning for 2023’s MHKC Winter Retreats in January and February.  Is it too early for a snow dance?

Up at camp this fall, there will be several large and small rental groups using the campsite for retreats, reunions, weddings and meetings.  If you’re interested in learning more about renting our facilities and about food service options, go to and click on the “Rentals” tab, or contact us at  Revenue earned from rentals supports MHKC camp programming.

And speaking of supporting MHKC, join us for the annual “Walk, Roll or Stroll” on September 11th at Oaks Park.  It’s a fun community-building event and a way for campers, families, counselors and staff to reunite after summer camp!  Find info on how to participate at

Here’s to your good health!
