Camp Westminster

First Pres children and youth have been going together to Camp Westminster on Higgins Lake for 19 summers.

Camp Westminster is a Presbyterian camp on Higgins Lake, 200 miles north, near Roscommon. Westminster is a traditional camp experience, and our kids (elementary school and middle school age) have participated in swimming, boating, archery, soccer, arts and crafts, nature activities, outdoor living skills, singing, campfires, Bible Quest and more.

Over the years some families have asked for more options than just the one week we traditionally have gone to Camp at the end of July. Camp staff have several suggested options for our families. All of these options will be led by the staff from Camp Westminster.

For those of you who want to come to camp our traditional week choose Adventure Camp for campers 2nd through 5th grade; or Adventure Camp Plus for campers 6th grade through entering 9th grade: July 29 – August 4

For those of you that would like to go to camp with your family --- check out Family Camp: July 2-6

For those of you who want a two week camp option, check out Extreme S.T.E.A.M., Just Camp or Drama Camp for 2nd grade complete through 5th grade; or Sailing Plus, Radical Faith, The Au Sable Paddle and Saddle Challenge or Just Camp Plus for 6th grade complete through entering 9th grade: July 8 – 20


To register and to get complete details go to the Camp Westminster website:

Camp Westminster has established an Adventure First legacy discount for $35 for these three camp sessions for families and children from First Pres. The code is "1432". This is in addition to the early registration discounts on the website. There are early registration discounts for completing your registration by February 15, 2018.

When you register indicate that you are from First Presbyterian Church Ann Arbor. This will help with cabin placement.

If there are families that feel an additional camp scholarship would be helpful, contact Debbie MacVey.
