Halloween is a favorite holiday of kids all over the country, and Camp Newaygo knows how to make it fun at their annual Halloweekend festivities. Give your Halloween costume a trial run!


Halloweekend takes place October 23 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m., and October 24 and 25 from 1:00–5:00 p.m. at beautiful Camp Newaygo, located at 5333 Centerline Rd., Newaygo. Activities include: “not-too-spooky”cabin tours, Halloween crafts, scarecrow making, homemade donuts, face and pumpkin painting, a genuine cider press, trolley rides, and much more. Family-friendly means affordable, and Camp Newaygo’s Halloweekend is only $5 per person or $18 for a family of four, which includes just about everything, including a family pumpkin and family scarecrow. Extra pumpkins will be available for purchase as well.


Also, the Tree Canopy Zip Line will be open to the public on October 23 from 5:00–7:00 p.m. and October 24 from 1:00–5400 p.m. Soar 85 feet in the air through the tree canopy for over a thousand linear feet of adrenalin-pumping zip lines; how’s that for scary?! Riders must be at least 43 inches tall and weigh at least 50 pounds. All riders must sign a waiver, children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and parents or guardians must sign the waiver for children. The Loop Zip, which covers the first two sections, is $12 per rider; The Dual Zip, which is the longest section and features two dueling zip lines is $15 per rider; or ride the Complete Canopy Tour for only $22 per rider. Just about anyone can do it with their easy-access launch/landing platforms accessed via stairs, and smooth, gradual “walk-off/on” take-off and landing ramps.


Volunteers are also needed to help decorate the “spooky cabins.” If your group is interested, please contact Dylan Kett at before October 19. For questions and group reservation information, contact Kett at 231-652-1184 or at the email above.
