Come be a part of our history!

The Michigan League for Crippled Children (MLCC) was founded 1894 and incorporated in 1923 to provide recreation opportunities for children with special needs.

Grace Bentley, a nurse originally from Ireland, who eventually settled in Detroit was a passionate and devoted member of the MLCC. Upon her death in 1928, Grace left a considerable portion of her estate to the MLCC to purchase land and begin construction of a camp later to be named Camp Grace Bentley.
