Ten Reasons to Host a Destination Wedding at Camp Newaygo


  1. More Time with Friends and Family.

Your friends and family can spend time making new connections, having fun, and celebrating the new chapter in your life!


  1. There’s No Rush.

Don’t add to your stress – decorate and get ready on your own time without stressing about a curfew.


  1. Details are on Us.

Let us handle your meals, setting up, cleaning, and activities.  We focus on the details so you can enjoy your weekend.   We’ll help you create a custom schedule and provide staff to lead activities.


  1. Act Like a Camper.

Who says camp is just for kids?  Try out our archery range, take a stand up paddle board out on the water, soar through the air on our zip line, and more.  We’ll help you create a custom schedule for a fun and stress-free event.


  1. On Site Lodging.

Stay up as late as you like by the fire – your room is just a short walk away.  Choose a bed in one of our community style dormitories or an Adirondack cabin.  Private rooms are also available in our Health and Leadership Lodge – these rooms have queen beds and attached bathrooms.


  1. Picture Perfect.

Use our beautiful scenery for your photos – either by the lake, wetland or forest.


  1. Eat Your Heart Out.

This isn’t your typical camp fare.  With Ridge Specialties Catering, we’ll pamper you and your guests with gourmet items like Hickory Glazed Salmon, Mesquite Smoked London Broil, Prime Rib, and more.  We’ll help you plan out your weekend menu so your guests are full and happy.


  1. Celebrate for a Good Cause.

As a non-profit facility, your weekend at Camp Newaygo supports youth and family programs in the community.


  1. Natural Setting, Modern Amenities.

Kick back next to our natural wood fireplace and surf the web on our Wi-Fi.  Take a dip in the lake then warm up with a hot shower in our private restrooms.  Lay in a hammock while watching an outdoor movie.  Our up-to-date facilities are perfect for a modern event in a natural setting.


  1. Be Unique.

Your weekend, your way – one that will have your guests reminiscing for years to come!
