For more than 60 years, Michigan United Conservation Clubs has offered Michigan kids ages 9- 16 an amazing week-long summer camp experience. Guided by conservation values, our youth camp gives youth a chance to be fully immersed in enjoying and developing an appreciation for our great outdoors. A true Michigan experience, MUCC’s Youth Camp is held at the Cedar Lake Outdoor Center near Chelsea in southeast Michigan.

The MUCC Youth Camp is a 6-day, 5-night summer adventure designed to instill a love for the outdoors into Michigan’s kids. Since 1946, Michigan United Conservation Clubs has helped more than 50,000 kids learn the value of conservation while introducing them to the wonderful world they live in right here in Michigan’s great outdoors. Kids attending the camp will experience fishing, canoeing, swimming, hiking, forestry, wildlife identification, archery and more! Campers also learn basic firearms safety, have the opportunity to earn their hunter education certificates and learn the value of sound conservation practices.

Recruitment and retention: These are the keys to the future of our outdoor heritage and to the long-term sustainability of Michigan’s great outdoors. It is only through wise use of our resources — the conservation ethic — that the passions and resources we enjoy today can be ensured for tomorrow.

It is for those reasons that Michigan United Conservation Clubs devotes so much energy and resources on youth education efforts. MUCC is a leader in youth-oriented outreach in Michigan. Whether it’s our long-running Youth Camp or our celebrated Tracks Magazine and Future Stars youth membership program, MUCC is committed to getting the next generation of Michigan outdoorsmen and women outdoors.
