Girlfriends Get-A-Way

Gather your girlfriends for an all-inclusive weekend filled with relaxation and fun. Spend the night in our campy chic dorms – which are heated and cooled – just a few steps away from our restrooms and showers. Sign up to be pampered with an on-site massage, manicure, or pedicure. Enjoy crafts, waterfront time, hikes, great food, and beautiful facilities in a wooded setting with awesome women.

Cost: $300 for all camp programs, meals, and lodging

Your registration includes everything you need to have a wonderful time at Girlfriends’ Getaway. During the weekend, we do offer some additional experiences and services for additional costs. A variety of pampering services is offered with past weekends featuring massages, facials, and salon care. We also offer our Zipline Canopy Tour to guests (weight limit 250 pounds) and have our camp store open to purchase swag throughout the weekend. Our hotel-style accommodations are also available for an additional fee. Add-on pricing for the weekend is provided via email to participants.


Lodging Options

Camp Newaygo has a wide variety of lodging options for your weekend away. Choose anything from rustic cabins to private, hotel-style accommodations (for an additional cost). Because we are testing upon arrival, participants can be lodged in communal dorms and cabins, with participants you do not yet know. If your group is uncomfortable with this structure, please contact us, so that your cabin/dorm/unit space is private, just within your group. Participants select lodging choices upon registration.
