What to Expect at Camp Newaygo
Fostering a love of the outdoors
For 95 summers, Camp Newaygo has been the place to be for West Michigan families. There is nothing like spending summers on Pickerel Lake, singing songs and making friends surrounded by woods and nature. Join us around the campfire this summer!
A pristine location with plenty to explore
Camp Newaygo has over 100 acres located at the edge of the Manistee Forest on a chain of four lakes. All of our programs create an engaging atmosphere for campers with a variety of activities including: 1000’ zipline, archery, kayaking, ceramics, darkroom photography, fencing, outdoor cooking, paddleboarding, sailing, swimming, tubing, ukulele lessons, wilderness trips and more.
Camp Newaygo Summer Camp Session Details
Discover the joys of camping together
Our two-day Mom & Me Weekends in June are for young children and their moms, grandmothers, aunts or other special female adults. Our Family Weekend in August is a chance for everyone to come out to camp.
Sing, canoe, fish, hike, create, and recharge on these special weekends. Spend the night in our dorms, cabins, or hotel-style accommodations - with all meals provided.
Visit our website for this year’s dates, rates, and more details.
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 Adventure 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 2021 are welcome at Day Camp.
Building upon our success in 2020, we will be implementing numerous protocols to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Of course, the summer camp environment already provides some elements of prevention like being outdoors, podding in small groups, and having a registered nurse on site.
Following recommendations from the CDC, State of Michigan, and American Camp Association, we also implement pre-arrival screening, social distancing, heightened sanitization protocols, daily health screenings, and updates to our activities to create a COVID-Careful Summer Program. More details of our plan are listed on our website.
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.

West Michigan summer camps are ON for 2021! Many camps fill up quickly, so sign up as soon as possible.
While I do love summer camps, the cost can add up, especially if you have multiple children.
I love finding Vacation Bible Schools for my kids because those are usually free.
We’ve also compiled this list of Camp Scholarships and Other Low-Cost Camps around West Michigan.
