Co-Ed Day Camp

In summer of 2021, we are excited to bring back our Co-ed Day Camp for campers entering first through seventh grades. We will be prepared to put health and safety protocols in place that match the current state of COVID-19 and the pandemic.

Registration for Summer 2021 IS NOW OPEN!


Our team will be working within State of Michigan, CDC, and American Camp Association recommendations to provide a COVID-Careful Day Camp experience. This will include modifications to our pick-up and drop-off procedures, expectations around mask-wearing and social distancing, additional sanitization, and some program changes to manage the risk of spreading COVID-19. We will keep registered families updated as we get closer to summer. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our campers, guests, and staff.

Imagine the perfect day: You wake up, pack your lunch, grab your bathing suit and head out the door. Smiling counselors meet you at the front gate of Camp, ready to sing songs, play wacky sports, and laugh along with you all day long. We spend the morning digging for dinosaur bones or fighting off dragons. After lunch, we splash in the lake, paddle in our canoes, and cheer for our friends in archery. When you wave goodbye at the end of the day, you aren’t sad at all. That’s because you get to do it again TOMORROW! Sound perfect? It’s just another day at Camp Newaygo’s Day Camp.

We are excited to offer our Co-ed Day Camp to campers entering first through seventh grades. Our camp features unique, educational, and interactive programs where kids have the opportunity to grow into their best selves. Day campers spend their days participating in  activities like archery, wilderness hikes, team building challenges, fishing, arts and crafts, and much more! Every Thursday will be a planned adventure day ranging from a canoe trip to Camp’s own private island to top secret missions. Programming takes places among 104 acres of beautiful undeveloped oak forest, natural wetlands, and an expansive private waterfront. During the week your child will be cared for, encouraged, and mentored by our outstanding camp counselors. We look forward to providing your child with positive experiences that will last a lifetime!
