CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Since 1926 campers from around the country and throughout the world have enjoyed fun filled summers at Camp Newaygo Girl's Resident Camp.

Camp Newaygo's primary program is girls resident camp, which provides campers the opportunity to have an adventure they couldn't get anywhere else. Being an all-girl's camp, our staff and campers feel free to be themselves, and are celebrated for their personalities. Staff at Camp Newaygo have three primary responsibilities: to teach daily classes (everything from swimming to sign language), to live in the cabins and tents with campers, and to lead outdoor trips - both backpacking and paddling.

You will never find a more genuine, compassionate, or caring environment for youth and staff. We pride ourselves on inclusion, and are always seeking adventures. If you are looking for the best summer of your life, congratulations, you've found it at Camp Newaygo.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Our Leader in Training group are exceptional young women who share the spirit of teamwork, adventure and individual challenge, while working closely with senior counselors. Young women entering the 12th grade that exhibit leadership potential are selected to participate in this unique program.

L.I.T.s will live in the cabins to learn from counselors. They will also lead activities, learn about group dynamics and become certified in Waterfront Lifeguarding, CPR, and basic first aid. Participate for as few as 3 weeks or as many as 7 weeks.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): My Mom & Me (or Grandma, too!) Specifically designed for young children and their mom's, grandmothers, aunts or another special female adult. The program offers an opportunity to introduce children (boys and girls) to the joys of camping. Singing around the campfire, canoeing on Lake Pickerel, catching their first fish, or doing crafts together are more fun together when all the planning and preparation are done for you. And, no cooking all weekend! Programs run Saturday at 11am to Sunday at 3pm.

My Dad & Me (or Grandpa too!) Specifically designed for young children and their dads, grandfathers, uncles or another special male adult. You and your "son or daughter" will be busy having fun trying archery, canoeing, games, and enjoying the woods and water. Dad's - get ready for a stress free weekend of special bonding with your child. The program runs Saturday at 11am to Sunday at 3pm.

Family and Friends Camp

Coming in 2014! Experience Camp Newaygo with all your loved ones. Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, and any other relatives will enjoy a weekend of programs to strengthen family bonds. Tube down the Muskegon River, or shoot some bullseyes at archery. Somewhere between canoeing and scavenger hunts you'll realize you're making lifelong memories together as a family. Bring two adults and at least one child and get ready to have a blast!

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: We run rental groups, community events, weddings, and off-site catering.
