MANTON CHRISTIAN CAMP CLOSED CAMPUS POLICY UPDATE - April 2022

The Manton Christian Camp Board has been working with the State of Michigan to revise our closed
campus policy during children’s and youth camps. Effective June 1, 2022 private cabin and permanent
RV owners may stay at the campground during children’s and youth camps providing the following
policy and procedures are strictly adhered to.


1. A private cabin owner or permanent RV owner staying in their cabin or permanent RV that is 18
or older must have a criminal background check completed in the current calendar year from
their home state. In Michigan that can be done through the Michigan State Police ICHAT
website. A private cabin owner or Permanent RV Owner staying in their cabin or permanent RV
that is 21 or older must have a Central Registry check completed in the current calendar year
from their home state. In Michigan that can be done through the Michigan Department of
Health & Human Services (MDHHS) Central Registry website. Your local church may be able to
assist you with these background checks.

 

2. Every person staying as a guest with a private Cabin Owner or Permanent RV owner that is 18 or
older must have a criminal background check completed in the current calendar year from their
home state. Every person staying as a guest with a private cabin owner or permanent RV owner
that is 21 or older must have a Central Registry check completed in the current calendar year
from their home state.

 

3. Prior to their arrival at the campground all private cabin and permanent RV owners must submit
copies of the appropriate current background checks for themselves and each guest that will be
staying with them on the campground, along with the date(s) they will be arriving, to the Camp
Administrator (Gabe Doherty) via USPS, scan/email, fax, or hand delivered. ANY individual 18 or
older arriving at the camp without a current criminal background check, or 21 and older without
a current Central Registry check on file with the Camp Administrator will not be allowed on the
grounds until they have completed and submitted the appropriate background checks to the
Camp Administrator.

 

4. Immediately upon arriving at the campground all private cabin and permanent RV owners and
their guests must contact and register with the Camp Administrator and inform them of the
date(s) they will be leaving. The phone numbers for contacting the Camp Administrator are
(231) 824-3200 or (231) 468-1901. All private cabin and permanent RV owners and their guests
will be informed of the area(s) being utilized by the children’s or youth camp and instructed that
these areas are off limits and may not be entered at any time for any reason. Cabin and RV
owners and their guests will be required to sign a waiver stating that they have been informed
of this policy and agree to adhere to it. ANY cabin owner, RV owner, or their guest found in
violation of this policy will be required to leave the campground, and not allowed re-entry for
the remainder of the current children’s or youth camp.
