Learn More about Summer Camp at GENEVA!

March8, 2016

Summer camp 2016 is rapidly approaching, and there are still openings available in some weeks. Below is some information to help as you get ready for your week of camp or if you are still considering signing up. All this information and more can be found on our website or by calling GENEVA at 616.399.3150. 

Camp Exploration Days (April 5, 7, 14, 19, 28, and May 3):  Want to learn more about GENEVA before registering your child? On Camp Exploration Days, you and your child can together tour the camp and explore the grounds. Our staff will be there to greet you, show you around, and answer any questions you might have. Call our office to schedule a time that works best for your family/friends.

Community Open House (May 22, 2-5pm):  It’s a great way for new and prospective campers to explore the facilities before camp starts. Knowing what the cabins will be like and how to find your way around can make the first day much less anxiety-producing.  We’ll even have the heated pool open for you to enjoy! Maps for self-guided tours will be available at both Shores and Pines and there will be lots of staff around to answer questions. 

Personal Tours: You can call and request a tour anytime. These are great for families unsure about the camp experience and for first-time campers and bunkmates to get comfortable with the camp surroundings before they attend for a week. Call 616.399.3150 to set up a tour and we will do our best to be available when it’s most convenient for your family.

Three Day/Two Night Camps: We offer two 3-day/2-night camps for younger campers (children entering grades 3-4) who are ready to sample what a week at camp is like without staying an entire week. These sessions will end with an invitation for the entire family to join in on some of the popular camp activities like arts and crafts, swimming, and archery.

Availability: If you haven’t registered your child for summer camp yet but still want them to attend, check GENEVA’s website for available dates. Specific session availability can be found here.
