Allegan, MI 49010
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 SpringHill's Summer Day Camp kids have five full days of SpringHill fun right in their hometown. This is one week out of the summer they will never forget. From the Climbing Wall and Flying Squirrel to Six Square, wild water games and stretching their creativity through cool crafts - they will have more fun than they can imagine while meeting new friends and learning more about Jesus.
At SpringHill, we've made it easy for you to build unity, have fun and experience God as a family! At our family camp you'll spend quality time with each other, have interactive sessions and learn how to strengthen your relationships as a family with Christ at the center.

All young people are made in the imagine and likeness of Christ and deserve to feel complete worth regardless of where they are spiritually, physically, emotionally, or socio-economically. Our value of embracing all kids is something that constantly shows Christ's love throughout their experience at SpringHill.
We understand the economy is uncertain. With discounts, friends for $50, scholarships and payment plans - we want to come alongside your family to help your kids experience camp this summer.
Retreats and Events:
SpringHill not only offers weeks of summer camp, but also short weekend retreats with that same SpringHill Experience condensed for groups and families.
Rent us! Have you ever considered bringing your Girl Scout troop or sports team to camp? Let us design an amazing retreat for you that will create a memorable experience for everyone. We have had several groups, churches and schools come to camp over the last few months that have had an amazing time!

We offer a wide variety of outdoor adventures led by trained and experienced leaders who guide children and teenagers in having an unforgettable experience.
Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group. At camp, we teach self-reliance, a love for nature, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character--all amidst the fun of camp fires, canoeing, archery, talent shows, and meaningful relationships. Our counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
2020 Summer Camp Programs will be operational from June 21 - August 14. We offer 1 and 2 week sessions.
