3212 - 125th Ave
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.

Our youth camp sessions are specifically designed to teach our campers about the value of diversity.

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.
