Imagine the perfect day you wake up for an early morning swim in the warm waters of Lake Pickerel with your friends and counselors. After breakfast you enjoy your daily classes: fencing on acorn courts, windsurfing across smooth water, and developing photos in the dark room. After dinner you and your cabin run through the woods battling against the other team to capture the flag. At night you sit with your new friends under the stars while your counselor teaches you special camp songs. As you fall asleep your head is full of laughter and your heart is filled with friendship. Sound perfect? It's just another day at Camp Newaygo. Since 1926 campers from around the country and throughout the world have enjoyed fun filled summers at Camp Newaygo Girl's Resident Camp.
