Our Church is more than just a building...
... it is a place where we can communicate with God.
Is Grosse Pointe Congregational the kind of church you can get involved in? We would love to have you visit and find out!
We are from all walks of life and from many parts of the journey. Our common faith brings us together to share and care for each other.
The Fowler Center, situated on over 200-acres in Mayville, Michigan has been providing year-round camping experiences for children and adults with developmental disabilities and special needs since 1957. Campers include individuals with cognitive and physical impairments, autism spectrum disorders, traumatic brain injuries, and sensory and communication challenges. Traditional camp activities, including swimming and boating, sports & recreation, creative arts, challenge courses, horseback riding and picnics are completely accessible. In addition to a central outdoor gathering spot for campfires, camp songs, and flag raising ceremonies, there is a vegetable garden that campers tend, a high ropes challenge course, a wheel-chair accessible tree house, a rock climbing wall, and platforms for outdoor camping. An Equestrian Center was built in 2006 for therapeutic riding.
The Fowler Center serves thousands each year offering programming to meet the needs of its campers. Sessions range from one and two week long residential camp to day camps to weekend respites to travel adventures. Emphasis is placed on the ability of each camper to participate in camping experiences according to his or her physical, cognitive and psychological abilities. A concerted effort is made to remove any possible barriers and to create a secure, positive and reinforcing environment. The goal is to offer a safe and comfortable environment so campers leave with memories of an enjoyable away-from-home experience, as well as new-found self-esteem, friendships, and pride.
The Center is accredited by the American Camp Association and is licensed as an Adult Foster Care Camp and a Children’s Camp by the Michigan Department of Human Services.
Please be generous with your gift in the blue or yellow outreach envelope marked ‘Fowler Center’.
