Camp Copneconic partners with Camp Midicha to provide campsite, dining, accommodations, program and counselor staff. Camp Copneconic is located in Fenton, just south of Flint, Michigan. All our staff, from the directors and administrators to the counselors, specialists and support staff, work hard to make sure your child has fun in a safe environment. Our staff has training in diabetes management, emergency procedures and cabin supervision.
