Camp Geneva, Camp Henry, and Camp Roger have joined together to raise money to send children to camp through Run for Camp – a 5K trail run being held on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at Camp Henry in Newaygo, MI.
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 these three camps have combined to provide over $1 million in scholarship assistance to make summer camp a reality for families in financial need. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to benefit from an amazing, positive, loving, fun-filled, and life-changing Christian camping experience.
Due to the generous support of our sponsors, 100% of the proceeds go directly into each camp’s Scholarship Fund.
The Run for Camp 5K Run is a chip-timed race. Costumes are welcome but not required. Awards will be given for both performance and costumes. Each registered runner will receive a race shirt and a pumpkin.
9am-12pm: Pumpkin carving, wagon rides, craft station, pumpkin bowling, archery, caramel apples, and additional fall activities

The race surface for the 5K Trail Run (and Walk) is 95% natural with a quick jaunt through a paved area. The trails are well marked and natural obstructions, like roots, are spray painted for safety. The most common surfaces are grass, durable natural pathways, and dirt. COURSE MAP
The 5K Trail Run will provide you with the opportunity to take in the sights Camp Henry has to offer as you wind through the scenic trails on Camp Henry’s 212 acres. The 5K Trail Run will be timed and awards will be given.
The 5K Trail Walk is perfect if you are interested in getting out, getting fit, and enjoying a beautiful morning on the trails. It will follow the same route as the 5K Trail Run. The 5K Trail Walk is a leisurely event so there is no pressure.
A link to the race registration form will be available here in August.
