Details

Located on Kimball Lake in Newaygo, Camp Henry sits on over 200 acres of forests, fields and wetlands. Providing the perfect environment for summer fun! We offer week long camps that include specialty programs such as Wakeboarding & Waterskiing, Soccer, Music, Climbing, and Horse Camps: Service, Adventure, and Leadership opportunities for teenagers from Service Crew to offsite trips around the country to an Assistant Counselor program: plus Day and Mini Camps for younger campers.

The majority of our campers come for "Regular" camp, our week long traditional overnight summer camping program where campers have the chance to experience all of the Camp Henry favorites like boating, archery, arts & crafts, and riding on our Big Banana and Magic Carpet as well as the opportunity to select their favorites from over a dozen land and water activities. We serve campers from ages 5 - 17, with many deciding to enroll in more than one session each summer.

Camp Henry has had the privilege of serving campers, families, and guests since 1937. We believe that a camping experience at Camp Henry has the capacity to transform lives in many ways. With such a concentrated amount of time, a beautiful natural environment, intentional camp programs and activities, opportunities to try something new, and campers being surrounded by positive Christian role models - the combination is perfect for enhancing and positively changing the lives of campers and guests who come to Camp Henry.

Camp Henry welcomes campers of all faiths as well as no faith at all. We don't require, assume, or expect that all campers are Christians or come from Christian families. Our hope is to simply be Christian toward everyone who comes to camp. Our staff members are truly awesome - energetic, encouraging, compassionate, fun-loving, dedicated, hard-working, and full of joy - and can hardly wait to welcome you to Camp Henry - please join us!

Year Round Retreat Opportunities
Camp Henry's intentional programs are designed to allow campers and guests to connect, refresh, learn, and grow. While many camps offer exceptional programs and activities, we take our services to the next level by providing you the opportunity to customize your experience to meet the needs of your group.

At Camp Henry you may rent cabins or lodges. You may opt to use any of our in-season recreational facilities or meeting spaces. You may also choose to have our excellent staff lead programming for your group. We can provide the flexibility your organization requires. Our trained staff are service-focused, attentive to details, and are looking forward to creating an excellent experience. Many leaders in the past have shown appreciation for the fact that all they needed to be concerned about during their time at camp was building relationships with the others in their group - we took care of the rest! Camp Henry is available from mid-August through early June for retreat and outdoor education programming. Limited programming is available from mid-June to mid-August. Please contact us for more information at 616-717-5571.

Our co-ed residential camp program, open to youth ages 7-17, combines elements of a traditional summer camp (swimming, sports, campfires, hikes, theater, dance, arts and crafts) with cooperative work projects (construction, organic gardening, trail maintenance and cleaning). In addition, educational activities focus on topics like climate change, food politics, social justice, ecosystems and the importance of critical thinking. Our focus on cooperation as an interpersonal strategy and viable economic alternative is embodied in our daily chores, work projects, decision making, camp store and other activities. We also offer several weekend programs for families thoughout the year, such as Maple Syrup Weekends, Apple Cider Weekends, Spanish Immersion Weekends, and the Buttermilk Jamboree music festival.

Circle Pines is committed to supporting sustainable agriculture and the slow food movement. Kitchen staff members work hard to provide delicious and nutritious meals from scratch using primarily local and organic ingredients. We source camp food from over 15 local farm families in Southwest Michigan. Meat dishes are prepared using pasture fed and humanely raised animals. Given advance notice, CPC can accommodate most dietary restrictions and allergies. Vegetarian alternatives are always available.

SpringHill Camps
SpringHill Camps is a nonprofit inter-denominational Christian camp with more than 40 years of experience reaching and serving children. All of our programs reach kids through a very specific ministry model, the SpringHill Experience. The SpringHill Experience consists of being God-immersed, embracing, innovative, integrating, professional, and community focused. We possess a passionate commitment to reaching the lost and being relevant as we share Jesus' message of grace, hope and love. Currently, we reach kids through overnight camp property in Michigan and Indiana. We also provide SpringHill Day Camps hosted at local churches and schools in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio.

Mission
To create life-impacting experiences that enable young people to know and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Overnight Camp: Grades 1st-12th
At SpringHill we focus on bringing the message of Christ to our youth while offering a cutting-edge ministry. With unique programming, activities and housing, your child is sure to try new things, meet great friends and grow in their relationship with God.

Day Camps: Grades Kindergarten-4th
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.

Family Camps:
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.

-Summer Family Camp: July 13-15, 2012

Special Needs:

Our value of embracing all kids is something that constantly shows Christ's love throughout their experience at SpringHill.

Scholarships:
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.

Guest Groups:
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.
