Camp Michigania East Update
After nearly 50 years of Michigania East at Point O’Pines, it is with sadness that we announce that we will no longer offer this opportunity through the Alumni Association moving forward. We know that many of you have made Michigania East a summer tradition for your family for many years, and we appreciate your loyalty and understand that this is not the news you wanted to hear.
To be fully transparent, this has been something that has been under consideration for several years now as we have experienced a decline in participation. This decline has made it a challenge to offer a program to the level that you would expect given our resource limitations. In fact, we actually operated the program at a loss for several years.
However, we know how important that week spent together is, so we would like to invite you to apply to come to Walloon Lake this summer and experience Camp Michigania. Alternatively, if you would like to enjoy a week at Point O’Pines Camp, they will offer a Family Camp during the week of Aug. 13. While it won’t be branded Michigania East, Family Camp at the Point will offer all the same activities and instruction that you look forward to each year. If you are interested, you can reach out to Point O’Pines directly.
The Himoff Family wants to express their appreciation to the University for nearly 50 years of wonderful friendships and experiences and is thankful for the Alumni Association sharing the opportunity to continue the relationships that have been fostered on Brant Lake.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Thank you once again for your understanding, and we hope to see you at Camp Michigania this summer.
Director, Camp Michigania
