run for camp

5K Trail Run & Walk 

presented by Howard Miller

benefiting the scholarship funds at Camp Geneva, Camp Henry, and Camp Roger. 


Saturday, October 13 at Camp Henry / 10:00 am 


Camp Geneva, Camp Henry, and Camp Roger have joined together to raise money to send kiddos to camp. All three camps have a long history and major commitment to making a summer camp experience accessible to all children and families – regardless of their ability to pay. Over the past four years between the three of our camps we have provided over $1 million in scholarship assistance to make summer camp a reality for families in financial need. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from an amazing, positive, loving, fun-filled, and life changing Christian camping experience. We have joined together to host the run for camp – a 5k trail run being held on Saturday, October 13 at Camp Henry in Newaygo, MI.
