About Cedar Bay

A Christian Camp & Retreat Center in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

Cedar Bay exists to serve Jesus Christ by stewarding a sanctuary where people can come away, meet God, and be renewed by His Spirit and His Word.

From humble beginnings in the 1950s to the present, Cedar Bay Camp & Retreat Center, formerly Cedar Campus, has been a place to meet God, for thousands of families, adults, and students.

Our Upper Peninsula Michigan Christian camp has been and continues to be a place for people to experience rest, revelation, and relationship through biblical teaching, Christian community, and creation.

Birthed by these core values, we send campers back out into the world with a deeper knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ, an encouraged and renewed spirit to influence others, and a continual posture of worship. Whether under InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (Cedar Campus) or Forest Springs Ministries (Cedar Bay), God has mightily used this place and people for His purposes.

Cedar Bay’s property is covered in the handiwork of God’s creation. Tucked away in Cedarville, Michigan on the north shore of Lake Huron, Cedar Bay stewards 512 acres of beautiful woodlands and 6 miles of waterfront property. Our corner of Prentiss Bay is full of wildlife, breathtaking views, and tranquility which can be explored by hiking the trails, traversed by kayak or sailboat, or marveled at from an Adirondack chair on our sandy and rocky shoreline.

Our desire and focus are to care for adults and nurture the family unit so that they can thrive and impact the world for Christ.

Cedar Bay family camps, marriage retreats, women’s retreats, and many other events are opportunities to come away to a place where God is first and His creation boasts of that.
