Welcome to Family Camp 2022! This year we invite you to “Awake” your soul to sing and make melody to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is worthy of our praise! And this is a call to so much more than just music (although we always enjoy great music at Family Camp!). So please plan to come and awake anew to what God wants to do in your heart, your life, your family, and even your community as we draw unto Him with a posture of praise and a heart open to new life.
We are pleased to be able to serve for the 4th time as your camp deans. We are hoping for some help through the week from former Bay Shore summer staffers in our family – our daughter Aubrey and her new husband, Jesse Stark (who will be married at Bay Shore on June 4!). We will most likely not see Jeffrey & Haley this year at Camp – at the time of this writing, Jeffrey is in Basic Training for the U.S. Navy and as of yet we don’t know where they will be stationed. They were married at Bay Shore last October. We hope your family, like ours, finds Bay Shore to be a special place year after year!

Adam Arnold grew up as a Bay Shore Camp kid and it was at camp that he first experienced the love and presence of Jesus. After giving his heart to Christ at camp, Adam went on to follow the calling to lead worship; having led at various camps, retreats, churches, and events, for the past two decades. Leading from a heart of simplicity and authenticity, Adam encourages the congregation to sing along and join all of creation in singing God’s praises. Through worship, Adam desires to lead people into the presence of God, gaining a better understanding of who He is and what He has done. Adam serves at Radiant Church and lives in Bay City, MI with his wife Laura and sons, Ira and Noel.
In late 2019 Dr. Marty Fletcher teamed up with Dr. Matt Hook to respond to the growing mental health crisis. Their goal is to help people create healthy spiritual lives in order to restore meaning and purpose to individuals, families, and communities. Psychology meets spirituality. To meet this goal, Dr’s Fletcher and Hook cohost a podcast called The Shepherd and The Shrink and team-preach in their community.
Dr. Marty Fletcher is the founder of Renew Hope Counseling. He is a fully licensed clinical psychologist and holds advanced degrees in clinical psychology and education. He focuses on treating anxiety disorders and depression. His treatment approach involves quickly reducing symptoms while helping patients design and maintain health-promoting lifestyles. Dr. Fletcher is a husband to Kathy and dad to 3 sons and one daughter. His interests include fitness, guitar, motorcycles, mountain biking, and exploring the role of spirituality in health.
Dr. Matt Hook is the Senior Pastor at Dexter UMC. This involves preaching and mutual discipleship with others in their multi-campus church and community. That means doing life together and providing as many ministry opportunities for as many people as possible. He loves God and he loves people, and in his role, he gets to do both! Matt, his wife Leigh, and their four children have had the opportunity to minister in many different countries and to host children from around the world through his work in World Methodist Evangelism.

Sarah grew up attending many events and activities offered by Bay Shore Camp where she learned at an early age to stay focused on Jesus and rooted in Christ. The grounds of Bay Shore have always defined safety to Sarah, especially in regards to her trust of Jesus. Now as a mom, she desires her daughters and other children know the safety of Jesus’ love and protection of being rooted in Him.
