Girls' Overnight and Co-ed Day Camps

Our Girls' Overnight Summer Camp is intentionally small which creates a strong sense of community and allows campers to explore a variety of activities. Girls grow their resiliency, establish a love of the outdoors, and make long-lasting friendships.

Sessions are for girls ages 7 to 17 and range from a four day/three night mini-week to one, two, and multi-week sessions.

Our Co-ed Day Camp offers days of outdoor fun with classic camp activities and a new adventure each week.

Nine weeks of summer adventures end with a full week of camp's Spanish Immersion Program.

All genders of campers entering 1st through 7th grade in the fall of 2023 are welcome at Day Camp.

Camp Newaygo is accredited by the American Camp Association. Our staff engage in two weeks of staff training before campers arrive and are CPR. First Aid, and Waterfront Lifeguard-certified by the American Red Cross.
