8-Week Experience

Campers can’t wait for their Machon summer when the beautiful lakefront area known as “The Point” is all theirs.

This tree-lined peninsula jutting into Lake Buckatabon is the perfect place to watch the sunset, play a game of pickleball, and hang out with friends. Camp no longer feels like a second home. It just feels like home.

All campers look forward to their Machon trip – a five-day road trip throughout the Midwest. The laughter is non-stop on the unforgettable bus rides with their best friends. Days are filled with site-seeing, community service projects, and definitely a stop at a water park or amusement park.  And of course, there are stops for ice cream. 

Machon also offers unique opportunities like lifeguard training, multi-week arts, sports and outdoor adventure intensives, participation in a leadership training fellowship and so much more.
