Beechpoint is an action-oriented Christian camp for youth ages 8-14. Each camper will have a blast while they swim, tube, fish, zip-line, or wall-climb. They will enjoy the archery, riflery, crafts, go-carts and boating. The pinnacle benefit, however, is that they will be motivated, challenged, and changed through their relationships with their counselors and through what they learn about God's love for them. We are convinced that lives are changed at Camp! Our hope is that boys and girls from every background will have the opportunity to attend summer camp. To help to make this possible, scholarship assistance is available to qualifying families.

At Camp Roger, our mission is to encounter and celebrate God's love for God's children through relationships and experiences in Creation.
Camp Roger has a rich heritage that we would love to share with you. Explore our history and see what shaped us to become the camp we are today. Go on a virtual tour of our grounds or get to know our staff. We are excited to share what God is doing on the Shores of Little Bostwick!
Contrary to what many people may guess, Camp Roger is busy all year long. Summer Camp is not the only thing that we do. Throughout the year we serve over 10,000 students in our outdoor education program, rent out our facilities, and hold special events. We would love for you to stay connected to our ministry throughout the year.
What makes Camp Roger so special:
- Kids meet God at camp: In a setting away from home, a young person can see God with new eyes. We take every opportunity we can to make Camp Roger a place where kids grow in their faith.
- At Camp Roger, nature is integral. We don't strive to turn up the volume on your child's life. We believe that the simplicity of a game of Capture the Flag or a mucking adventure in Pickerel Lake helps slow kids down. They are then free to just have fun and be ready to be filled up with the wonder of God's creation.
- Our counselors are impressive young people who know how to mentor kids in their faith while sitting around a campfire, hiking to the bog, or learning to braid. Whether being away from home for the first time or spreading his or her wings on a Pioneer trip, we want each child to finish camp feeling confident and closer to God. That's why we're here.
- We take our responsibility to keep your child physically and emotionally safe very seriously. Safety and health practices at the waterfront, on camping trips, in the dining hall and throughout camp comply with or exceed state licensing and industry standards. Camp Roger is proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association. Developed exclusively for the camp industry, this nationally-recognized program focuses on program quality and health and safety issues, and requires us to review every facet of our operation.

Youth Camp (ages 8-13)
Located on the shores of the beautiful Lake Campbell, Camp Tall Turf has been instilling the biblical message of reconciliation in our campers for over 40 years. Our youth camp sessions are specifically designed to teach our campers about the value of diversity. Campers who attend Tall Turf develop critical cross-cultural skills in a fun, safe and engaging environment.

Tall Turf's teen Leader's In Training serve as peer mentors and motivators in this five day session.

Camp Tall Turf offers two unique Family Camp opportunities created to engage the family unit in our mission and vision of reconciliation. All of our Family Camp sessions take place over a weekend to facilitate working families. Family Camp sessions are loosely organized around our curriculum of reconciliation, but also offer lots of time for families to hang out and interact. We believe that one of the best ways to break down barriers is to have fun together! Family Camp sessions are a great way to spend a weekend away with your family, neighbors and community.

Camp Pinewood is a YMCA camp located in northeastern Muskegon County. Since 1925 Camp Pinewood has served the children of Michigan through summer, youth group, school, and retreat programs. Our summer programming provides a wonderfully diverse setting for children to develop relationships with their peers from across the world. Camp Pinewood provides both one and two weeks sessions for campers ages 5-17. We teach dozens of outdoor classes utilizing our beautiful 200 acre property and 45 acre lake.
Transportation from Grand Rapids may be available upon request. We never turn away campers for a lack of funding - please see our Financial Aid application on our website!
