A scenic and tranquil meeting place
Michigan Friends Center, surrounded by 92 lakefront acres belonging to Friends Lake Cooperative Community in Chelsea, offers a facility to groups seeking a scenic, tranquil meeting place. It is an ideal change-of-pace setting for conferences, workshops, retreats, trainings, educational programs and special events. The Center is available yearround for reservations and is efficiently designed to accommodate a variety of group activities.
“We need to preserve a few places, a few samples
of primeval country
so that when the pace gets too fast we can look at it, think about it,
contemplate it, and somehow restore equanimity to our souls.”
