Greetings from the shores of Old Lake Kimball!  

As we navigate through uncertain times, we find ourselves grateful . Grateful for our families, grateful for our friends - and grateful to have you as part of our Camp Henry community. 

We’re also hopeful - and are all dreaming and planning to be back on the Shores of Old Lake Kimball with your kiddos this summer. 

We’re planning . With the start of camp months away, we are continuing our preparations for summer camp as usual. We’re hiring staff, prepping our programs, developing our theme content, and perfecting our campfire skits. 

We’re also contingency planning. We have created models of what summer could look like for many different scenarios so that we can be prepared to serve as many campers as possible and are able to roll into each plan.

We remain optimistic . Part of our mission here at Camp Henry is to bring people together, and we can’t wait to welcome folks back to camp. 

We will continue to monitor and abide by the advice and directives of the CDC, the State of Michigan, and our local health department. We will be assessing our operations based on these recommendations, and update you as circumstances change.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding. 
Please know that we would love nothing more than to welcome your camper to Camp Henry and we look forward to serving you.

Looking forward to warmer and brighter days ahead,

Camp Henry
