Judson Collins to be decommissioned

Judson Collins Center to be decommissioned after 67 years as a religious campground.
Those gathered at Judson Collins Center will have the opportunity to walk the grounds one last time on November 7th before the site is decommissioned as a United Methodist Camp.
 
A Decommissioning Service will be held at Judson Collins Center (1000 Hane Hwy, Onsted, MI 49265) on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020, at 2 pm.
 
Judson Collins was closed at the end of 2019, and the property is being sold. Before the property is transferred to new ownership, the Michigan Area United Methodist Camping Board is holding a final worship service to celebrate the ministry of Judson Collins Center since 1952.
 
Everyone attending the event is asked to bring a chair and wear a mask. The service will be outdoors with physical distancing practices in place. Following the service, there will be a time for people to wander the grounds one final time to remember and say farewell to this holy place.
 
As part of this service, a remembrance booklet is being put together. If you have a story you’d like to share in the booklet, please e-mail it to the Camping Central Office at kkusnier@umcamping.org by Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020. Though the property will be decommissioned, life-changing experiences at Judson Collins Center will live on.
