Dear CranHill Campground and Cottage Friends,
It is with great sadness that I am writing this email to you today. If you’re like me you’ve been looking forward to coming to CranHill for your stay. Well, that stay is, unfortunately, going to have to wait just a little while longer.
Yesterday, Governor Whitmer announced that the Stay-At-Home order will remain in effect until May 28th. With this order, she has essentially required CranHill’s Campgrounds and Cottage Rentals to remain closed until at least May 28th. As difficult as this is for us, we rejoice because as a Christian organization we get to represent Christ in honoring the authorities over us (Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2:13).
Believe me, we really want to be open, and we really want you here. We not only desperately need the revenue, but we simply love the ministry that happens while you’re here. You’re not just like family… you are family.
You are entitled to a full refund without cancellation fees because we are required to cancel your reservation.
You may choose one of the following options:
DONATE your received payments to CranHill to help support the current financial needs of this ministry. In this case, you will receive a tax receipt for 100% of the funds donated and you can then make another reservation for a future date.
REBOOK your received payment for a future date during the 2020 camping season. In this case, we would love to help you find another date this summer.
REFUND Your received payment will be 100% refunded to you. Refunds will be processed within two weeks of your reservation date and credited back to your credit card or sent by check.
If you choose Option 1 or Option 3, we will process your request and you will receive the proper communication showing your donation or your refund.
If you choose Option #2, we will give you a phone call to assist your rebooking. Or feel free to give us a call during normal office hours at your convenience.
We are still planning to open the campground and cottages this season just as soon as we can. Please stay tuned to our website and social media for further updates. You might also want to catch a new weekly update video called “The Porch.”
Thank you so much for your partnership and prayers during these unique days. We continue to pray for all our guests, that the Lord would make these days a great time of family connectedness to each other and to the Lord regardless of all that is happening around us.
Blessings, and we look forward to seeing you soon here at the Ranch.
Build lasting relationships with your Students!
2024 Registration Opens July1, 2023
We want you to do what you do best - minister to today’s youth. Let us take care of all the details; a great speaker, an awesome worship band, all the meals, and activities. This allows you to spend more time building relationships with your youth and leaders. Whether you are hanging out playing a game of archery tag, hitting the tubing hill, or digging into God's word in small group time with your teens, we want you to have the best weekend you can.
Student: $129 ($119 - Early Bird Special if your group reserves your spot before November 1!)
Leader (1 per 7 campers): $85
Additional leaders: $129
Registration deadlines are set 14 days prior to the specific retreat weekend.
CranHill Winter Youth Retreats Provide a wide variety of winter activities for your group. Have a great time building memories on our 3 sledding hills, archery tag, snowshoeing, climbing the ice wall, or getting competitive in a broomball tournament! We also offer horseback trail rides at an additional cost.
The fun doesn't stop when it is time for chapel though. We will play some fun games, followed by a time of engaging worship and teaching for your students to draw closer to God.
CranHill Winter Youth Retreats are specifically designed for Youth Leaders to engage in large and small group interactions with the intention of transforming lives into the image of Christ.
We want you to be able to connect with your youth group and foster relationships that continue to build after you go back home.
