Camp Talahi serves as a retreat center for churches, secular organizations, and individuals throughout Michigan. Away from the pressures of everyday life, Camp Talahi offers a singular, spiritually enriching environment wherein one grows to a better understanding of God, oneself, and one another. Camp Talahi provides an “up-north” Christian retreat experience in close proximity to church and home.
Who We Are
The Camp Talahi Retreat and Nature Center, Inc. (CTRNC) is an nonprofit organization formed by a consortium of Michigan United Church of Christ members and ministers. CTRNC is a 501c3, tax-exempt entity under Michigan and federal law.
CTRNC has been organized for the purpose of administering camping and retreat programs on the Camp Talahi property for future generations of UCC members and other interested individuals, families and congregations. Camp Talahi has played a vital role in supporting youth and outdoor ministry, and we believe that through careful planning and thoughtful operation, Camp Talahi can once again play a pivotal role in the lives of Michigan UCC members of all ages.
