Choose Your Own Adventure This Summer at Camp Tall Turf

Each cabin, consisting of a group of 8 youth supervised by one adult, will learn to work as a community in their living quarters, in the dining hall, and in camp activities.

Each day, campers will have opportunities to choose their own adventures in leadership training, sports, science, arts, and adventure under the care of qualified adults. Each activity will be facilitated to emphasize the camp theme.

The cost of camp is dependent on the number of days per session, family size, and income.
Financial assistance is available.

Our program costs are offset through fundraising efforts and generous support from partners and donors.

Transportation for campers is available from the TTM office (2010 Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, MI) and White Cloud. Camp is located 70 miles northwest of Grand Rapids in a town called Walkerville in Oceana County.

Our staff undergo two weeks of intensive training.
