Co-Ed Day Camp

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.

Please remember to pack a daily lunch for your child; most weeks are Monday through Friday.

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. Our days are full of laughter, fun, and high adventures based in the natural environment.

Day campers spend their days participating in awesome activities like archery, wilderness hikes, team building challenges, fishing, arts and crafts, and much more! Every Thursday of each week will be a planned adventure day ranging from a canoe trip to Camp’s own private island, to horse back riding at a nearby stable. These weekly adventures are add-ons (some with an extra cost. If you are eligible for a scholarship, they cover the adventures) and are not required for your child to enjoy their week at camp.  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!
